Jin -gle -bell, jin -gle -bell, Jin -gle -Bell Rock jin -gle -bell swing and jin -gle -bell ring,
Snow -in' and blow -in' up bush -els of fun Now the jin -gle -hop has be -gun,
Jin -gle -bell, jin -gle -bell, Jin -gle -bell Rock jin -gle -bells chime in jin -gle -bell time,
Dan -cin' and pran -cin' in jin -gle -bell Square in the fros -ty air.
What a bright time, it's the right time to rock the night a -way,
Jin -gle -bell -time is a swell time to go glid -in' in a one -horse sleigh.
