Over the River and Through the Woods 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.

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.

Over the river and through the woods
Trot fast my dapple gray
Spring o'er the ground just iike 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 the pumpkin pie.

About this song:

"Over the river and through the woods" was written by the American poet, Lydia Maria Child.
