Jingle Bells o Jingle Bell Rock?

di isayblog4 0

 

Jingle Bells o Jingle Bell Rock, non è affatto facile scegliere. Da un lato viene da dire che la seconda, famosissima sia molto più allegra e moderna, mentre dall’altra c’è la prima che rappresenta un pilastro musicale del Natale. Voi quale preferite? Noi intanto vi riportiamo i testi:

Jingle Bells

James Pierpont. publ.1857

 

Dashing through the snow

On a one-horse open sleigh,

Over the fields we go,

Laughing all the way;

Bells on bob-tail ring,

making spirits bright,

What fun it is to ride and sing

A sleighing song tonight, O

 

Jingle bells, jingle bells,

jingle all the way!

O what fun it is to ride

In a one-horse open sleigh (repeat)

 

A day or two ago,

I thought I’d take a ride,

And soon Miss Fanny Bright

Was seated by my side;

The horse was lean and lank;

Misfortune seemed his lot;

He got into a drifted bank,

And we, we got upsot.O

 

Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells,

Jingle all the way!

o What fun it is to ride

In a one-horse open sleigh. (repeat)

 

A day or two ago,

the story I must tell

I went out on the snow

And on my back I fell;

A gent was riding by

In a one-horse open sleigh,

He laughed as there

I sprawling lie,

But quickly drove away, O

 

Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells,

Jingle all the way!

o What fun it is to ride

In a one-horse open sleigh. (repeat)

 

Now the ground is white

Go it while you’re young,

Take the girls tonight

And sing this sleighing song;

Just get a bob-tailed bay

two-forty as his speed

Hitch him to an open sleigh

And crack! you’ll take the lead, O

 

Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells,

Jingle all the way!

o What fun it is to ride

In a one-horse open sleigh.

 


Jingle Bell Rock

Bobby Helms

 

Jingle bell, jingle bell, jingle bell rock

Jingle bells swing and jingle bells ring

Snowing and blowing up bushels of fun

Now the jingle hop has begun

 

Jingle bell, jingle bell, jingle bell rock

Jingle bells chime in jingle bell time

Dancing and prancing in Jingle Bell Square

In the frosty air.

 

What a bright time, it’s the right time

To rock the night away

Jingle bell time is a swell time

To go gliding in a one-horse sleigh

Giddy-up jingle horse, pick up your feet

Jingle around the clock

Mix and a-mingle in the jingling feet

That’s the jingle bell,

That’s the jingle bell,

That’s the jingle bell rock.
