Englische Weihnachtslieder: 'Jingle Bells' & 'Wish you a Merry Christmas'

Auch wenn es in Deutschland eine Fülle von schönen Weihnachtsliedern gibt, sind 'Jingle Bells' und 'We wish you a Merry Christmas' Lieder, die auch hierzulande fest mit dem Weihnachtsfest verbunden und von allen gesunden werden. Dabei ist 'Jingle Bells' eigentlich gar kein Weihnachtslied gewesen, sondern ursprünglich ein fröhliches Lied über den Spaß an einer Fahrt mit dem Pferdeschlitten.


Jingle Bells:
Jingle bells, jingle bells,
Jingle all the way,
Oh, what fun it is to ride
In a one horse open sleigh. Hey!
Jingle bells, jingle bells,
Jingle all the way,
Oh, what fun it is to ride
In a one horse open sleigh.


Dashing through the snow
In a one horse open sleigh,
O'er the fields we go,
Laughing all the way.
Bells on bobtails ring,
Making spirits bright.
What fun it is to ride and sing
A sleighing song tonight. Oh!


Jingle bells, jingle bells,
Jingle all the way,
Oh, what fun it is to ride
In a one horse open sleigh. Hey!
Jingle bells, jingle bells,
Jingle all the way,
Oh, what fun it is to ride
In a one horse open sleigh.

Frank Sinatra singt 'Jingle Bells'


Wish you a Merry Christmas:

We wish you a Merry Christmas,
We wish you a Merry Christmas,
We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
Good tidings we bring to you and your kin,
Good tidings for Christmas and a Happy New Year.


Oh, bring us a figgy pudding,
Oh, bring us a figgy pudding,
Oh, bring us a figgy pudding and a cup of good cheer
We won't go until we get some,
We won't go until we get some,
We won't go until we get some, so bring some out here


We wish you a Merry Christmas,
We wish you a Merry Christmas,
We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
