Aussie Jingle Bells Lyrics

Aussie Jingle Bells Lyrics

As we get closer to Christmas, the decorations are up up the stores and to get shoppers into the spirit, Christmas music is being played. Jingle bells seems to be one of the more popular tunes being played but yesterday I heard an Aussie version of Jingle Bells which after a little research I thought may be worthy of a share :)

If you’re a fan of Jingle bells, check out the lyrics below. I really like the Aussie version of Jingle bells and the lyrics should help you sing along.

Aussie Jingle Bells Lyrics

Dashing through the bush
In a rusty Holden Ute
Kicking up the dust
Esky in the boot
Kelpie by my side
Singing Christmas songs
It’s summer time and I am in
My singlet, shorts & thongs

OH, JINGLE BELLS, JINGLE BELLS
JINGLE ALL THE WAY
CHRISTMAS IN AUSTRALIA
ON A SCORCHING SUMMER’S DAY
JINGLE BELLS, JINGLE BELLS
CHRISTMAS TIME IS BEAUT
OH WHAT FUN IT IS TO RIDE
IN A RUSTY HOLDEN UTE

Engine’s getting hot
Dodge the kangaroos
Swaggy climbs aboard
He is welcome too
All the family is there
Sitting by the pool
Christmas day, the Aussie way
By the barbecue!

OH, JINGLE BELLS, JINGLE BELLS
JINGLE ALL THE WAY
CHRISTMAS IN AUSTRALIA
ON A SCORCHING SUMMER’S DAY
JINGLE BELLS, JINGLE BELLS
CHRISTMAS TIME IS BEAUT
OH WHAT FUN IT IS TO RIDE
IN A RUSTY HOLDEN UTE

Come the afternoon
Grandpa has a doze
The kids and uncle Bruce
Are swimming in their clothes
The time comes round to go
We take a family snap
Then pack the car and all shoot through
Before the washing up

OH, JINGLE BELLS, JINGLE BELLS
JINGLE ALL THE WAY
CHRISTMAS IN AUSTRALIA
ON A SCORCHING SUMMER’S DAY
JINGLE BELLS, JINGLE BELLS
CHRISTMAS TIME IS BEAUT
OH WHAT FUN IT IS TO RIDE
IN A RUSTY HOLDEN UTE

Aussie Jingle Bells… Esky, Bush and Thongs… What the???

Oh, and for those wondering what some of these words mean, here’s a quick translation:

Bush – Countryside
Holden Ute – Open back van
Esky – Cool box
Kelpie – Australian breed of dog
Singlet – Sleeveless vest
Thongs – Flip flops
Scorching summers day – like hot!! Very hot!!
