Cue Sheet

OPENER - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
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

Do an allemande left with the corner, weave the ring
Silver bells, silver bells
Swing this girl and promenade her
Ring-a-ling, hear them ring
Soon it will be Christmas Day


FIGURE (twice for heads, twice for sides)    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads square thru 4 hands around will do
Meet the corner lady with a dosado, make an ocean wave
Recycle, sweep 1/4 more,
slide thru, with a right & left thru
Veer to the left, chain down the line, slide thru
Swing and promenade her
Ring-a-ling, hear them ring
Soon it will be Christmas Day


MIDDLE BREAK    Basic

All four ladies chain, go straight across that ring
You roll away and circle to the left now
4 ladies roll away, you circle around that way
Do an allemande left with the corner and weave the ring
Silver bells, silver bells
Swing this girl and promenade her
Ring-a-ling, hear them ring
Soon it will be Christmas Day


TAG

Swing her
Soon it will be Christmas Day

Silver Bells
 
 

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 ev'ry 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

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 ring
Soon it will be Christmas day

Silver bells, silver bells
It's Christmas time in the city
Ring-a-ling, hear them ring
Soon it will be Christmas day

Lyrics by Jay Livingston and Ray Evans.
