"Ring Them Bells" as written by and J. Kander F. Ebb....
Ring them bells yea heathen
From the city that dreams
Ring them bells from the sanctuaries
Cross the valleys and streams
For they're deep and they're wide
And the world's on it's side
And time is running backwards and so is the bride
Ring them bells
Ring them bells
Ring them bells
Ring them bells!

Ring them bells Saint Peter
Where the four winds blow
Ring them bells with an iron hand so the people will know
That the rush hour is now on the wheel
And the plow and the sun is going down
Upon the sacred cow
Ring them bells
Ring them bells
Ring them bells
Ring them bells

Ring them bells Saint Martha for the poor man's son
Ring them bells so the world will know that God is one
For the shepherd is asleep where the willows weep
And the mountains are filled with little lost sheep
Ring them bells for the blind and the deaf
Ring them bells for all of us who are left
Ring them bells for the chosen few
Who would judge the many when the game is through
Ring them bells for the time that flies,
For the child that cries when
Innocence dies
Ring them bells Saint Catherine
From the top of the room
Ring them bells from the fortress
From the lilies that bloom
For the lines they are long
And the fighting is strong
And they're breaking down the distance
Between right and wrong

Ring them bells
Ring them bells
Ring them bells
Ring them bells!
