Question about English (US)

What do the following lyrics refer to of the Christmas carol "Jingle Bells"?

1. Bells on bob tails ring (What is a bobtail?)

2. Making spirits bright (Spirits?)

3. A sleighing song tonight (What's a sleighing song?)

4. The horse was lean and lank (My understanding is "lean" means "not fat". However, I am not sure about the word "lank")

Also, does the word order of my original question sound natural or should I say "What do the following lyrics of the Christmas carol "Jingle Bells" refer to?
