"Jingle Jangle Jingle", also known as "I've Got Spurs That Jingle Jangle Jingle", is a song written by Joseph J. Lilley and Frank Loesser, and published in 1942.[1] It was featured in that year's film The Forest Rangers, in which it was sung by Dick Thomas.[2]

The most commercially successful recording was by Kay Kyser, whose version reached no. 1 in the Billboard charts in July 1942. Versions were recorded by many other musicians, including Tex Ritter, Gene Autry, Glenn Miller and The Merry Macs.[1]

Members of the Western Writers of America chose it as one of the Top 100 Western songs of all time.[3]

Kay Kyser's recording of the song is featured in the 2010 role-playing video game Fallout: New Vegas.[4]

The song was performed by Jon Walmsley and Lisa Harrison on The Waltons, Season 9, Episode 13, "The Gold Watch" (26 Feb. 1981).
