Lyrics

Over the river and through the woods,
to Grandmother’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—
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,
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!]

Over the river and through the woods,
to Grandmother’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—
oh, how the wind does blow!
It stings the toes and bites the nose,
as over the ground we go.
