The day• of mud and dust are pmt;
The feathery snow is fllig fat,
And the joyfl day has come at last
When we can go out a sleighing.
The hip ! hbrrs ! we'll kuL snd tag,
While the ~leigh-bells merly rtiy
Their jolly chorus of chiag-a-liag,
As we go out a sleighing.
With sweethearts tucked in robes so warm,
Held about her with a loving arm
bh ! what i life without tte charm
Of a girl to take out a sleighang !
Then hip! hurra ! etc.
A crack of the whip and of we go,
Dphing in the whirling snow:
Two-forty mutt be the gait you know,
When we go out a sleighing.
Then hip ! hrra ! etc.
0! stop now George, you've spoiled my hat;
-ercy on me, what are you at ?
Inever thought you'd try to do that
When we were out a sleighing.'
Then hip ! hurrs ! etc.
'Look up my dear, now don't be shy;
It ' only a bridge we've just prased by,
And surely the toll you'll not deny,
When we are out a sleighing?
Then hip! burrs I etc.
,Jh ! it's all very nice, but I must sy,
L.at I never have noticed until today,
. many bridge- along the way,
When I have been out a sleighing.'
Then hip! hurr ! etc.
The ho.t'l now discovers its form,
Lonming up it, the driving storm,
Where we always stop toget 'something
When we go out a sleighing.
Then hip! hurra! etc.
Now bring the bottles and birds along;
Who loves not women, and wine, and song,
Shoull -uffer dyspepsia all his life long
Ana never go out a sleighing.
Then Lip! burrs ? etc.
Then Ermn and I conclude by the way
That love can only be made in a sleigh;
For wa lone up the courting and fixed the day
While we were out a sleighing.
Then hip! hurrs ! we'll laugh sad sing,
While the sleigh bells merrily ring,
For lighter hearts to oar homes we bring
As we come back from sleigiag.
