Jingle Bells is by far the most annoying Christmas tune. Aside from having to hear it in every shop, on every corner of the street, every ten minutes on the TV and nowadays on banners, pop-ups and when doing a simple Google search, I really, really, really dislike the lyrics.
It just never really made sense to me. Jingle all the way? How is that fun? “Oh what fun it is to ride”? Any exclamation that begins with “Oh what fun it is to..” IS NOT FUN! And on a one-horse open sleigh? Are you kidding me? There isn’t even any snow outside, if I were riding a one horse open sleigh now, my ass would turn into the himalayas. And then the incredibly fake rhythmic, melodic laughing in the middle of the sentence. Sorry but unless you’re singing in Russian and are an international youtube hit, that’s just the lamest trick ever to make something seem fun! But that’s not all. What are “the bells on bobtail ring”? What does that even mean? Sorry but if this crap makes you laugh all the way, you need to kill yourself.
There. Glad that’s out. I’ve just heard this tune WAY too many times in my life.
