The Chipmunks – Ding Dong Merrily On High lyrics

Ding Dong! Merrily on high
In heav'n the bells are ringing
Ding Dong! Verily the sky
Is riv'n with angel singing

Gloria, Hosanna in excelsis
Gloria, Hosanna in excelsis
Get ready, for the nine, you kids
The Chipmunks will sing about the second verse in B major
And you do the Ding-Dong

E'en so here below, below
Let steeple bells be swungen
And i-o, i-o, i-o
By priest and people be sungen

Gloria, Hosanna in excelsis
Gloria, Hosanna in excelsis
And now, let's all sing together
Let's sing about the third verse in C major
And sing-along with do the Ding-Dong, ok

Pray ye dutifully prime
Your matin chime, ye ringers
May ye beautifully rime
Your evetime song, ye singers

Gloria, Hosanna in excelsis
Gloria, Hosanna in excelsis
Hosanna in excelsis!
