I hear the bells                                        w/ (dam dam dam)
       C     D      G(7)  g a b
Saying Christmas is near
C         D      G        Em
They ring out to tell the world
     A7                    D7    f# g a 
That this is the season of cheer

I hear a choir                                             (ooooh)
Singing sweetly somewhere
And a glow fills my heart, I'm at peace with the world
As the sound of their singing fills the air             fin: w/o d e f#

     G               Cm          G         /a          
  Oh why can't every day be like Christmas?
      G                  B7           E7
  Why can't that feeling go on endlessly?
         C     D            G         E7                   (ooooh)
  For if every day could be just like Christmas
         C         D                G  E7
  What a wonderful world this would be?

I hear a child                                          (en A)                           
Telling Santa what to bring
And the smile upon his tiny face
Is worth more to me than anything

  Oh why can't every day be like Christmas?
  Why can't that feeling go on endlessly?
  For if every day could be just like Christmas
         D         E (r)              A   Dm (r) A (r)
  What a wonderful world this would   be? (oooooooooh)
