    Silver Bells
City sidewalk, 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 ring,
soon it will be Christmas day.
City 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 ring,
soon it will be Christmas day.

The Christmas Song
Mel Torme (c) 1946
Chestnuts roasting on an open fi re
Jack Frost nipping at your nose
Yule-tide carols being sung by a choir
And folks dressed up like Eskimos.
Everybody knows a turkey
and some mistletoe
Help to make the season bright
Tiny tots with their eyes all aglow
Will fi nd it hard to sleep tonight.
They know that Santa’s on his way
He’s loaded lots of toys
and goodies on his sleigh
And every mother’s child is gonna spy
To see if reindeer
really know how to fl y.
And so I’m offering this simple phrase
To kids from one to ninety-two
Although it’s been said
many times, many ways
Merry Christmas to you.
