- The original title of this song was 'Tinkle Bells'. To make matters slightly more humorous, it originally appeared in the The Lemon Drop Kid, a 1951 film starring Bob Hope. Needless to say, these two things would have surely resulted in the song getting a few chuckles, had composer Jay Livingston's wife, Lynne Gordon, not stepped in to point out the double meaning of the word 'tinkle.'
