2. 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.
We got into a drifted bank and then we got upsot.
3. 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.
4. Now the ground is white go it while you're young,
Take the girls tonight and sing this sleighing song;
Just get a bobtailed bay two forty as his speed.
Hitch him to an open sleigh and crack! you'll take the lead.
