Silver Bells "Silver Bells" started out as the questionable "Tinkle Bells." Said Evans, "We never thought that tinkle had a double meaning until Jay went home and his [first] wife said, 'Are you out of your mind? Do you know what the word tinkle is?'" The word is child's slang for "to urinate." First sung by Bob Hope and Marilyn Maxwell in the movie The Lemon Drop Kid, the song was inspired by the imagery of Salvation Army bellringers standing outside department stores during the Christmas season words and music by Ray Evans and Jay Livingston Silver bells, silver bells It's Christmas time in the city Ring-a-ling, hear them ring 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 ring Soon it will be Christmas day BAJAR LA MÚSICA AQUÍ!!!
