"The Three Bells" as written by and Jean Villard....
There's a village hidden deep in the valley
Among the pine trees half forlorn
And there on a sunny morning
Little Jimmy Brown was born (Bung, bung, bung, bung)

All the chapel bells were ringing
In the little valley town
And the song that they were singing
Was for baby Jimmy Brown

Then the little congregation
Prayed for guidance from above
"Lead us not into temptation,
Bless this hour of meditation,
Guide him with eternal love"

There's a village hidden deep in the valley
Beneath the mountains high above
And there, twenty years thereafter
Jimmy was to meet his love (Bung, bung, bung, bung)

All the chapel bells were ringing
'Twas a great day in his life
'Cause the songs that they were singing
Was for Jimmy and his wife

Then the little congregation
Prayed for guidance from above
"Lead us not into temptation,
Bless, oh Lord this celebration,
May their lives be filled with love"

From the village hidden deep in the valley
One rainy morning dark and gray
A soul winged its way to heaven
Jimmy Brown had passed away (Bung, bung, bung, bung)

Just a lonely bell was ringing
In the little valley town
'Twas farewell that it was singing
To our good ol' Jimmy Brown (little Jimmy Brown)

And the little congregation
Prayed for guidance from above
"Lead us not into temptation,
May his soul find the salvation,
Of thy great eternal love"

    General CommentI don't get why they can't display the lyrics. Here they are:

    There's a village, hidden deep in the valley,
    Among the pine trees, half forlorn.
    And there, on a sunny morning,
    Little Jimmy Brown was born.

    All the chapel bells were ringing, in the little village town,
    And the song that they were singing was for baby Jimmy Brown.
    And the little congregation prayed for guidance from above:
    "Lead us not into temptation, bless this hour of meditation.
    Guide him with eternal love."

    There's a village, hidden deep in the valley,
    Beneath the mountains high above.
    And there, twenty years thereafter,
    Jimmy was to meet his love.

    All the chapel bells were ringing, 'Twas a great day in his life,
    Cause the song that they were singing was for Jimmy and his wife.
    Then the little congregation prayed for guidance from above:
    "Lead us not into temptation, bless, O Lord, this celebration.
    May their lives be filled with love."

    From the village, hidden deep in the valley,
    One rainy morning dark and gray,
    A soul winged its way to heaven.
    Jimmy Brown had passed away.

    Just a lonely bell was ringing, in the little valley town,
    ‘Twas farewell that it was singing to our good old Jimmy Brown.
    And the little congregation prayed for guidance from above:
    "Lead us not into temptation, may his soul find the salvation
    Of thy great eternal love."

    I am not a religious person but I love this song. Especially the backing vocals.
