Sitting On The Ice In the Ice Rink-1933
  Decca F3458 Cottrell

Now here's a new amusement that is get in all the craze,
You'll find that it's good exercise for folks of every age.
Now I go there most every night and sometimes take the wife,
I've never had so many ups and downs in all my life.

Since I've been sitting on the ice in the ice rink
Sitting on the ice with my skates on.
It's the finest fun I've ever had, put it on the ice and itll never go bad.
There's lots of nice young ladies, and how I like to tease em
If they don't give way or say O.K. I sit 'em on the ice and freeze 'em.

Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way
We had some fun on the run in a one-horse open sleigh.

Now once I went out walking with a pretty little miss
She said "I like you very much" and gave me one big kiss.
She was a perfect little blonde and not so very old.
She let me hold her in my arms and 'by gum' she was cold
'Cause she'd been sitting on the ice in the ice rink,
Sitting on the ice with her skates on.
Oh how hot she must have felt, she sat upon the ice and the ice began to melt.
She was so young and pretty, what a blow that fall had dealt her
For we couldn't pick her up in the ordinary way, we had to bring a fire and melt her

Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way
We had some fun on the run in a one-horse open sleigh.

Last night I went out for a drink down to the Cherry Tree
I didn't go there by myself, I took some pals with me.
We landed home at half past two, I rang the front door bell.
The wife said "Where've you bin" and I said "you can go to bed"
'Cause I've been sitting on the ice in the ice rink,
Sitting on the ice with my skates on.
It's the finest fun I've ever had, put it on the ice and it'll never go bad.
The buttons bust off my trousers, I got into such a tangle.
I said "Heaven help the sailors on a night like this, And never let your braces dangle."
