  1. Silver Bells

4. Silver Bells (3:59) (Jay Livingston, Ray Evans; Sony/ATV Harmony)
Why choose a holiday song that has been done a gazillion times? Because it’s been done a gazillion times for a reason! The trick it to try and do it differently than the rest, and in this case, differently than you have been doing it your entire life. As so often happens in rehearsal, the ordinary changed with a little switch in the rhythm, and when Kelly added the bass - well it just all came together. It will be difficult to ever do this song the old way again!

Lyrics

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

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
