Aussie Jingle Bells


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 and thongs

Oh! Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way,
Christmas in Australia on a scorching summers day, Hey!
Jingle bells, jingle bells, Christmas time is beaut !,
Oh what fun it is to ride in a rusty Holden Ute.

Engine's getting hot; we dodge the kangaroos,
The swaggie climbs aboard, he is welcome too.
All the family's 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 summers day, Hey!
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 the family snap,
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 summers day, Hey!
Jingle bells, jingle bells, Christmas time is beaut!,
Oh what fun it is to ride in a rusty Holden ute.

I fondly remember the day my daughter's class performed this at a school carols by candlelight nights a few years back. Good stuff.

Ute, in Australian English and New Zealand English usage, short for "utility vehicle", the Australasian equivalent of the North American term pickup truck. NOTE: it is ALWAYS referred to as a 'ute' never a 'ute vehicle'.

Singlets are sleeveless and legged one-piece garments.

The 'Ute' - A vehicle with the cabin of a car and the rear of a small truck was designed by Lewis Brandt at the Ford Motor Company in Geelong, Victoria.1934 and called a 'Utility Vehicle'. The 'ute' has long been a favourite vehicle for farmers and tradesmen and is part of the Australian landscape.

Coincidently, it is exactly a year ago today that I won my Father a Ford Falcon XR6 ute.

Body style is closer to an E'Camino or a Ranchero than a Pickup truck though.

Yeah, the 4 door Holden Crewman is not a bad looking ute. Although the tray's a tad small, but ok for pottering around, and you'd probably fit a few motor bikes there.

The Mrs plays his CDs a fair bit. Has some good kids music there, that the Walker tribe like to listen to.
