We're a chime of merry Christmas bells,
Ring, ting-a-ling, ting-a-ling!
This is what our merry music tells,
Ring, ting-a-ling, ting-a-ling.
If you're good the whole year through,
Doing what you're asked to do,
Santa Claus might visit you,
Ring, ting-a-ling, ting-a-ling!
Ring-a-ling-a, ting-a-ling-a,
Ring-a-ling-a, ting-a-ling-a,
Light little, bright little bells,
Ring-a-ling-a, ting-a-ling-a,
Ring-a-ling-a, ting-a-ling-a,
Dear little, clear little bells!

Children love to hear our happy sound,
Ring, ting-a-ling, ting-a-ling!
It means Santa Claus is coming 'round,
Ring, ting-a-ling, ting-a-ling!
Bringing goodies, bringing toys,
Things that ev'ry child enjoys,
Some for girls and some for boys,
Ring, ting-a-ling, ting-a-ling!
Ring-a-ling-a, ting-a-ling-a,
Ring-a-ling-a, ting-a-ling-a,
Light little, bright little bells,
Ring-a-ling-a, ting-a-ling-a,
Ring-a-ling-a, ting-a-ling-a,
Dear little, clear little bells!

But when merry Christmas has begun,
Ring, ting-a-ling, ting-a-ling!
And you're having loads and loads of fun,
Ring, ting-a-ling, ting-a-ling!
Don't forget, whate'er you do,
Some folks have much less than you,
So give thanks for blessings, too!
Ring, ting-a-ling, ting-a-ling!
Ring-a-ling-a, ting-a-ling-a,
Ring-a-ling-a, ting-a-ling-a,
Light little, bright little bells,
Ring-a-ling-a, ting-a-ling-a,
Ring-a-ling-a, ting-a-ling-a,
Dear little, clear little bells!
