Sleigh Ride

Album: Greatest Hits (1948)
  • Just hear those sleigh bells jingle-ing, ring-ting tingle-ing, 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 fairy land.

    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. Writer/s: Leroy Anderson, Mitchell Parish

  • Dave from Wheaton, IlWhy'd Phil have the girls record a very truncated version of 'Sleigh ride'? He left out many of the lyrics!
  • Guy from Woodinville, WaThe Ronettes is my favorite version, but the Karen Carpenter also sings a knockout version on the best Christmas album ever recorded, "A Christmas Portrait."
  • Steve Dotstar from Los Angeles, CaWonderfultune...forthe 50's bop instrumental version,try the Herb Geller Quartet on Emarcy records(outofprint,but may be on cd now.)
  • Teresa from Mechelen, BelgiumStefanie, if you like Phil Spector, if you like his "Wall of Sound" just buy his Christmas cd.
  • Stefanie from Rock Hill, ScI mihgt have heard that version. I'm not sure.
  • Teresa from Mechelen, BelgiumOn the Christmas cd "A Christmas gift to you from Phil Spector" there's a version from the Ronettes; it's very good, very original, very Spector.
