OVER THE RIVER 
AND THROUGH THE WOODS
by Lydia Marie Child
Presented by Bethany Roberts and the Holiday Mice

Over the river and through the woods,
To Grandfather's house we go.
The horse knows the way
To carry the sleigh,
Over white and drifted snow, O!
----------------------------------------------



Over the river and through the woods,
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,
Trot fast my dapple gray.
Spring over the ground
Like a hunting hound
On this Thanksgiving Day, Hey!



----------------------------------------------------


Over the river and through the woods,
Now Grandmother's cap I spy.
Hurrah for the fun,
Is the pudding done?

Hurrah for the pumpkin pie!
