Blog Caroling with Nova Scotia's Anne Murray


Joining all my wonderful Geneablogger friends in the annual tradition, hosted by the incomparable footNoteMaven, of Blog Caroling !! My contribution comes from one of our favorite Christmas albums, Anne Murray's Christmas Wishes



I just had to share one of Anne's songs off this album, and I chose Silver Bells, because it is a Christmas song from my own childhood, when I remember Christmas shopping with my mother in the old time department stores in downtown Portland, Maine, like Porteous, Mitchell and Braun's, Owen Moore, Lerners, and Benoit's.



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.

City 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 ring,
Soon it will be Christmas day.






To see the Christmas carols and songs that we all shared, visit footnoteMaven's blog after she compiles the list on Wednesday, December 19th.

Soon it will be Christmas Day!
