Dashing through the water
With gel packs as our fodder

In a four-person drafting pack
We swim fast with no slack
O’er the waves we go
Positioning, pacing with the flow

Whistles from escort kayaks ring’
Making spirits bright
What fun it is to swim and sing
An open water song tonight!

Jingle bells, jingle bells,
Pace all the way.
Oh! what fun it is to swim
In a lifestyle, fighting fit and trim.

Jingle bells, jingle bells,
Swim all the way;
Oh! what fun it is to draft in the open
O’er the waves, swimming and copin’

Other Christmas carols for open water swimmers include the Twelve Days of Christmas in the Open Water (see here), ‘Twas The Night Before Christmas in the Open Water (here), and Frosty the Snowman (here).
