Silver Bells
by Burl Ives



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


It's Christmas time in the city


Ring-a-ling, hear them sing


Soon it will be Christmas day




Strings of street lights


Even stop lights


Blink a bright red and 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


It's Christmas time in the city


Ring-a-ling, hear them sing


Soon it will be Christmas day
