IRVING BERLIN lyrics - Bells

IRVING BERLIN
"Bells"

[Verse:]
Very many years ago
Mister Edgar Allan Poe
Wrote a little poem I know
Called "Bells"
When I read those clever rhymes
Of the many different chimes
I could almost hear them ringing
Ding dong dinging

[Refrain:]
Phone bells, sleigh bells
And very merry Christmas day bells

The brazen fire bells that ring with fear
And happy New Year bells that ring out once a year

Cow bells, door bells
For all I know there may be more bells

But the poet tells
That wedding bells
Have the sweetest little ding dong of all
