Over the river and thru 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 thru the wood, To have a first-rate play; Oh, hear the bell ring, "Ting-a-ling-ling!" Hurrah for Thanksgiving Day-ay! Over the river and thru the wood, Trot fast my dapple gray! Spring over the ground, Like a hunting hound! For this is Thanksgiving Day. Children's Songs More new and exciting features are coming to KIDiddles!
