Silver Bells
 
Silver bells, silver bells
it's Christmas time in the city
ring-a-ling, hear them ring
soon it will be Christmas day!

City sidewalks, busy sidewalks 
dressed in holiday style 
in the air there's a feeling of Christmas!
 
Children laughing, people passing 
meeting smile after smile
and on every street corner you'll hear . . .

Silver bells ( silver bells! ) silver bells
( silver bells! )
it's Christmas time in the city
ring-a-ling
( ring-a-ling! ) hear them ring
( hear them ring!! )
soon it will be Christmas day!

Strings of street lights, even stop lights 
blink of bright red an' green 
as the shoppers rush home with their treasures! 
 
Hear the snow crunch, see the kids bunch 
this is Santa's big scene
and above all this bustle you'll hear . . .
 
Silver bells ( silver bells! ) silver bells
( silver bells! )
it's Christmas time in the city
ring-a-ling
( ring-a-ling! ) hear them ring
( hear them ring!! )
soon it will be Christmas day!
 
Silver bells ( silver bells! ) silver bells
( silver bells! )
it's Christmas time in the city
ring-a-ling
( ring-a-ling! ) hear them ring
( hear them ring!! )
soon  . . . to fade
