Church bells.

“Oh! Ho!” My ringing friends exclaim,

Their sounding bells above

They pull the ropes and spin the wheels,

And practice what they love.

And when the Bride comes to be wed,

The bells ring out the news

They spread the word of love and joy,

Beyond the church and pews.

Some bells have been thus ringing,

Three hundred years and more,

All kinds of diff’rent methods

With strange names, of that I’m sure,

But come and share the pleasure

Of challenge with much fun

Keep old traditions going,

Church bells for everyone!
