Lyrics

Over the river and through the woods
To grandmother's house we go.
The horse knows the way to carry the sleigh
Through white and drifted snow
Oh over the river and through the woods
Oh, how the wind does blow
It stings the toes and bites the nose
As over the ground we go.
Over the river and through the woods
To have a full day of play
Oh hear the bells ringing "ting-a-ling-ling"
For it is Christmas Day, hey
Over the river and through the woods
Trot fast, my dapple gray!
Spring o'er the ground just like a hound
For this is Christmas Day.
Over the river and through the woods
And straight through the barnyard gate
It seems that we go so dreadfully slow
It is so hard to wait.
Over the river and through the woods
Now grandma's cap I spy.
Hurrah for fun, the pudding's done
Hurrah for pumpkin pie.
