Sleigh Ride is a popular light orchestral piece composed by Leroy Anderson. The composer had the original idea for the piece during a heat wave in July 1946; he finished the work in February 1948. Lyrics, about a person who would like to ride in a sleigh on a winter's day with another person, were written by Mitchell Parish in 1950. The orchestral version was first recorded in 1949 by Arthur Fiedler and The Boston Pops Orchestra. The song was a hit record on RCA Victor Red Seal 49-0515 (45 rpm) / 10-1484 (78 rpm), and has become the equivalent of a signature song for the orchestra. The 45 rpm version was originally issued on red vinyl. The orchestra has also recorded the song with John Williams, their conductor from 1979 to 1995, and Keith Lockhart, their current conductor.

The Wiggles' version of this song was not only released on the It's Always Christmas With You! album but on "The Spirit of Christmas 2011" compilation album, as well.

Song Lyrics

Captain: Just hear those sleigh jingling Ring ting tingling too.

Dorothy: Come on it's lovely weather for a sleigh ride together with you.

Captain: Outside the snow is falling and friends are calling "YOO-HOO!"

Dorothy: Come on it's lovely weather for a sleigh ride together with you.

Sam: Giddy up! (3x) Let's go! Let's look at the show! We're riding in the wonderland of snow! Giddy up (3x) It's grand! Just holding your hand! We're gliding along with the song of a wintery fariyland!

Captain: Our cheeks are nice and rosy and comfy cozy are we.

Dorothy: We've snuggled up together 2 birds of a feather would be.

Captain: Let's take that road before us and sing a chorus or 2.

Dorothy: Come on it's lovely weather for a sleigh ride together with you.

Sam: There's a birthday party at the home of farmer grey. It'll be the perfect ending on the perfect day. We'll be singing the songs we love to sing without a single stop. At the fire place where we'll watch the chestnuts pop. There's a happy feeling nothing in the world can buy. When they pass around the coffee and the pumpkin pie. It'll nearly be like a picture print, by Currier and Ives. These wonderful things are the things we remember all through are lives.

Captain: Just hear those sleigh jingling Ring ting tingling too.

Dorothy: Come on it's lovely weather for a sleigh ride together with you.

Captain: Outside the snow is falling and friends are calling "YOO-HOO!"

Dorothy: Come on it's lovely weather for a sleigh ride together with you.
