"Sleigh Ride" is a popular song usually associated with Christmas. It was originally written as an instrumental piece in 1946 by Leroy Anderson, who intended it to refer to any winter event, not specifically Christmas. Mitchell Parish added words later, as he did for several of Anderson's compositions. The most famous recording of the song is by the Boston Pops Orchestra, conducted by Arthur Fielder.

The song is featured as the first track on the album Merry Nickmas, which is performed by the cast of the 2012's Nickelodeon shows, as iCarly, Victorious, Big Time Rush, How to Rock and Bucket & Skinner's Epic Adventures. From Victorious, the cast members that sing are Victoria Justice, Ariana Grande, Elizabeth Gillies and Leon Thomas III.

Lyrics Edit

Just hear those sleigh bells jingling, ring ting tingling too
Come on, it's lovely weather for a sleigh ride together with you
Outside the snow is falling and friends are calling "Yoo hoo!"
Come on, it's lovely weather for a sleigh ride together with you.

Giddy up, giddy up, giddy up, let's go, let's look at the show
We're riding in a wonderland of snow.
Giddy up, giddy up, giddy up, it's grand, just holding your hand
We're gliding along with a song of a wintry fairy land

Our cheeks are nice and rosy and comfy cozy are we
We're snuggled up together like two birds of a feather would be
Let's take that road before us and sing a chorus or two
Come on, it's lovely weather for a sleigh ride together with you.

There's a birthday party at the home of Farmer Gray
It'll be the perfect ending a of perfect day
We'll be singing the songs we love to sing without a single stop
At the fireplace while we watch the chestnuts pop. Pop! pop! pop!

There's a happy feeling nothing in the world can buy
When they pass around the coffee and the pumpkin pie
It'll nearly be like a picture print by Currier and Ives
These wonderful things are the things we remember all through our lives!

(First Stanza reprised)

It's lovely weather for a sleigh ride together with you
It's lovely weather for a sleigh ride together with you
