JingleBells

The Wiggles, Captain Feathersword and Wags the Dog working on sleigh

"Jingle Bells" is The Wiggles Christmas song Wiggly, Wiggly Christmas.

Origins

Although not originally intended on having any connection to Christmas, it became associated with Christmas music and the holiday season in general decades after it was first performed on Washington Street in Boston in 1857. Some area choirs adopted it as part of their repertoire in the 1860s and 1870s, and it was featured in a variety of parlor-song and college anthologies in the 1880s. It was first recorded by the Edison Male Quartette in 1898 on an Edison cylinder, and became a Christmas favorite in the early twentieth century.

Song Lyrics and Transcript from Wiggly, Wiggly Christmas 1997

Murry: We're making a sleigh out of cardboard boxes. In cold countries, people use sleighs to ride over snow.

Jeff: I got scissors to cut the cardboard.

Anthony: I got some glue here too to glue the pieces of the sleigh.

Captain Feathersword: Wags and I are gonna decorate the sleigh with tinsel.

Greg: And I'm painting the sleigh with a huge paintbrush. So why don't we sing a song about riding in a sleigh?

(singing) Jingle bells, Jingle bells

Jingle all the way.

Oh, what fun it is to ride

In a one-horse open sleigh. Hey!

Jingle bells, Jingle bells

Jingle all the way.

Oh, what fun it is to ride

In a one-horse open sleigh.

Dashing through the snow

In a one-horse open sleigh.

O'rer the fields we go.

Laughing all the way

Bells on bobtail ring making spirits bright.

What fun it is to ride and sing a sleighing song tonight.

Oh, Jingle bells, Jingle bells

Jingle all the way.

Oh, what fun it is to ride

In a one-horse open sleigh. Hey!

Jingle bells, Jingle bells

Jingle all the way.

Oh, what fun it is to ride

In a one-horse open sleigh.

Dashing through the snow

In a one-horse open sleigh.

O'rer the fields we go.

Laughing all the way.

Bells on bobtail ring making spirits bright.

What fun it is to ride and sing a sleighing song tonight.

Oh, Jingle bells, Jingle bells

Jingle all the way.

Oh, what fun it is to ride

In a one-horse open sleigh. Hey!

Jingle bells, Jingle bells

Jingle all the way.

Oh, what fun it is to ride

In a one-horse open sleigh.

Captain Feathersword: Let's fly, Wag-sy.
