In the sleepy town of San Juanita There's a story that a padre tells Of a gay senor and senorita And the serenade of the bells Seems they asked the padre for permission To be married early in the spring But their folks had made just one condition That the mission bells had to ring Ev'ryone knew the bells were broken And hadn't sounded for a long, long time Then one night the village was astounded For the bells began to chime Still the bells are broken, goes the story But if in your heart a true love dwells They will ring for you in all their glory That's the serenade of the bells (Contributed by Ferda Dolunay - January 2006) *********** SERENADE OF THE BELLS (Gracie Fields) as recorded by Gracie Fields with Phil Green & his Orchestra 1948 In the sleepy town of San Juanita, There's a story that the padre tells Of a gay senor and senorita, And the serenade of the bells. Seems they asked the padre for permission To be married early in the Spring, But their folks had made just one condition - That the mission bells had to ring. Everyone knew the bells were broken, And hadn't sounded for a long long time, But that night the village was astounded, For the bells began to chime, Ding-dong ding-dong, ding-dong, ding-dong! Still the bells are broken, goes the story , But, if in your heart a true love dwells, They will ring for you in all their glory, That's the serenade of the bells. People say that miracles don't happen, But it seems to me they often do! All you need is faith to make that happen; Listen while I sing again to you. In the sleepy town of San Juanita, There's a story that the padre tells Of a gay senor and senorita, And the serenade of the bells. Seems they asked the padre for permission To be married early in the Spring, But their folks had made just one condition - That the mission bells had to ring. Everyone knew the bells were broken, And hadn't sounded for a long long time, But that night the village was astounded, For the bells began to chime, Ding-dong ding-dong, ding-dong, ding-dong! Still the bells are broken, goes the story , But, if in your heart a true love dwells, They will ring for you in all their glory, That's the serenade of the bells. Ding-dong ding-dong, Ding-dong ding-dong! Ding-dong ding-dong, Ding-dong ding-dong! (Transcribed by Peter Akers - January 2013)
