John Prine — Silver Bells lyrics

City sidewalks, busy sidewalks
Dressed in holiday style
In the air there is a feeling of christmas
Children laughing, people passing
Greeting 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.

Strings of streetlights even stop lights
Blink a bright red and green
As the shoppers rush home with their treasures
Here the snow crunch, see the kids bunch
It santa's big day
And above all the hustle 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.

Silver bells, silver bells
It's christmas time in the city
Ring-a-ling hear them ring
Soon it will be christmas day.
Soon it will be christmas day.
Soon it will be christmas day.
