Over The River Lyrics + Video

by Pentatonix | in Carols

Over the river, and through the wood, 
To Grandfather's house we go; 
The horse knows the way 
To carry the sleigh 
Through the white and drifted snow.

Over the river, and through the wood, 
To Grandfather's house away! 
We would not stop 
For doll or top, 
For 't is Thanksgiving Day.

Over the river, and through the wood, 
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 wood,
With a clear blue winter sky, 
The dogs do bark, 
And children hark, 
As we go jingling by.

Over the river, and through the wood, 
To have a first-rate play  
Hear the bells ring
Ting a ling ding, 
Hurra for Thanksgiving day!

Over the river, and through the wood  
No matter for winds that blow; 
Or if we get 
The sleigh upset 
Into a bank of snow.

Over the river, and through the wood, 
To see little John and Ann; 
We will kiss them all, 
And play snowball, 
And stay as long as we can.

Over the river, and through the wood, 
Trot fast my dapple gray! 
Spring over the ground, 
Like a hunting-hound,
For 't is Thanksgiving day!

Over the river, and through the wood, 
And straight through the barnyard gate; 
We seem to go 
Extremely slow, 
It is so hard to wait.

Over the river, and through the wood  
Old Jowler hears our bells; 
He shakes his pow, [sic]
With a loud bow-wow, 
And thus the news he tells.

Over the river, and through the wood  
When Grandmother sees us come,
She will say, Oh dear, 
The children are here, 
Bring a pie for every one.

Over the river, and through the wood  
Now Grandmothers cap I spy!
Hurra for the fun! 
Is the pudding done? 
Hurra for the pumpkin pie!
