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 ev’ry 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.
