The music for the US national anthem came from an English drinking song.

Jingle bells, jingle
bells, jingle all the way!
O what fun it is to ride in a one-horse open
sleigh
Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way!
O what fun it is
to ride in a one-horse open sleigh

Dashing through the snow, in 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

Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all
the way!
O what fun it is to ride in a one-horse open sleigh
Jingle
bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way!
O what fun it is to ride in a
one-horse open sleigh

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 got
upsot

Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way!
O what fun it
is to ride in a one-horse open sleigh
Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle
all the way!
O what fun it is to ride in a one-horse open sleigh


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



(Chorus)
Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way!

O
what fun it is to ride in a one-horse open sleigh
Jingle bells, jingle
bells, jingle all the way!
O what fun it is to ride in a one-horse open
sleigh
O what fun it is to ride in a one-horse open sleigh

: If it's bullshiat, it's certainly well-done bullshiat. I've yet to see a full listing of the lyrics that doesn't talk about picking up "Miss Fanny Bright."

The lyrics I posted above were the first I came across, and I found out they're missing a verse about "I was running around and fell on my ass in the snow and this gentleman in a one-horse open sleigh rode by and laughed at me."

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.

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.

(repeat chorus)

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.

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.

Nives glacies, nox, puertia!
Risus decet, nunc decent carmina!
Laetos iuvat nos ire per agros!
Traha fert velociter, cachinemus nos!

Tinniat, tinniat tintinnabulum!
Labimur in glacie post mulum curtum!

Me nuper miseium tamptavit lunae lux!
Mox assidebat tum puella facti dux!
Vecti subito in nivis cumulos -
Caballus est perterriture et tunc eversi nos!

Solum cintillat, nive candidum,
Repetatur nunc, concentus carminum!
Canities abest morosa omnibus!
Puellulas cum pueris delectat hic cursus!

yes, that was latin jingle bells. i have no life.

Bonobo62: I believe you and the probability of the Jingle Bells being something of a 'pick-up' song. My point is, the idea that anyone would even take time to debate it is just b.u.l.l.s.h.i.t., I just don't care about where "jingle bells" came from...

Aarkieboy, do you ever stop to think that the western culture that you probably gobble up like candied yams is the result of thousands of years of society before it?

just wondering......

Batman smells
Robin laid an egg
Batmobile lost a wheel
Joker got away

Mittenman: I think you made my point without knowing it. Who gives a shiat about whether "Jingle Bells' is/was a pickup song or not when there are a lot more important things in the world to debate, learn, discover, etc. That's why I think the whole idea of debating "Jingle Bells--pickup song or not" is just BS. Not the idea of whether it is or not--I've read the entire lyrics way before now. I agree it in most probability the song is more than what we take it to be. It's just not high on my list of important items.
