English term or phrase: as there ... lie
He laughed as there
I sprawling lie

Hallo wie hängen diese 2 Sätze zusammen? Würde mich interessiere 1000 Dank

A day or two ago
the story I must tell
I went out on the snow
And on my back I fell;
A gent was riding by
In a one-horse open sleigh
*He laughed as there
I sprawling lie*
But quickly drove away
Jingle Bells
Jingle Bells
Jingle all the way!

agree  Armorel Young: The connection is the fact that he's laughing at the man who has fallen over in the snow - Schadenfreude, you might say
