Silver Bells

Silver bells, silver bells
It's Christmas time in the city
Ring-a-ling ring-a-ling,
Hear them ring ting-a-ling
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 streetlights
Even stop lights
Blink a bright red and green
As the shoppers rush
Home with their treasures

Hear the snow crunch
See the kids rush
This is Santa's big day
And above all this bustle you'll hear

Silver bells the corner Santa Claus,
Silver bells, it's busy now because
It's Christmas time in the city
Ring-a-ling, it fills the winter air
Hear them ring you'll hear it everywhere
Soon it will be Christmas day.

City sidewalks, [silver bells] busy sidewalks,
[Silver bells] Dressed in holiday style
In the air It's Christmas time in the city
there's a feeling of Christmas Children laughing, ring-a-ling
People passing, Hear them ring
Meeting smile after smile
Very soon it will be Christmas day.


Performed by
Bing Crosby & Carol Richards (1950)

Silver Bells" is a classic Christmas song,
composed by Jay Livingston and Ray Evans.

The first recorded version was by Bing Crosby and Carol Richards in 1952,
which also became a hit in late 1952.

The lyrics are unusual for a Christmas song in that they describe the holiday
in the city, and not a rural setting.
