"Sleigh Ride" as written by Mitchell Parish and Leroy Anderson....
Just hear those sleigh bells jingling,
ring-ting-tingling, too.
Come on, it's lovely weather for a sleigh ride
together with you.
Outside the snow is falling
and friends are calling, "Yoo-hoo!"
Come on, it's lovely weather for a sleigh ride
together with you.

Giddy-yap, giddy-yap, giddy-yap, let's go,
Let's look at the show
We're riding in a wonderland of snow.
Giddy-yap, giddy-yap, giddy-yap, it's grand,
Just holding your hand.

We're gliding along with a song of a wintery fairyland.
Our cheeks are nice and rosy and comfy-cozy are we.
We're snuggled up together
like two birds of a feather would be.
Let's take that road before us and sing a chorus or two.
Come on, it's lovely weather for a sleigh ride
together with you.

There's a birthday party at the home of Farmer Gray.
It'll be the perfect ending of a perfect day.
We'll be singing the songs we love to sing
without a single stop,
At the fireplace while we watch the chestnuts pop.
Pop! Pop! 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 our lives!

Just hear those sleigh bells jingling,
ring-ting-tingling, too.
Come on, it's lovely weather for a sleigh ride
together with you.
Outside the snow is falling
and friends are calling, "Yoo-hoo!"
Come on, it's lovely weather for a sleigh ride
together with you.

    General CommentI love the song, but never knew DG say this. I once saw/heard her sing in a mall (immediately before or after she was discovered). I even got to say 'hello' to her (as I wondered who the heck she was:)She was so bubbly and happy....and it was obvious she would move on up the ladder. This is such a romantic track because it allows the listener to visual the ride through the snow with a loved one. Never got the chance to go on a sleigh ride and somehow holding onto the back of a guy on a snowmobile just didn't cut it:)
