Carol of the Bells is a Christmas carol which was performed in an end tag of Community by the characters Dean Pelton, Ben Chang, Magnitude, Alex "Star-Burns" Osbourne and Leonard Rodriguez. They are all seen reflected on Christmas tree ornaments harmonizing the song with each speaking a signature word, phrase or sound. As the performance ends, a cat's paw is seen swatting at the decorations. The perfomance abruptly stops when Chang cries out after the cat knocks down his ornament and Pelton then closes out the song with another Dean pun. "Carol of the Bells" was first heard in the Season Three episode "Regional Holiday Music".

Carol Of The Bells

Lyrics:

Hark how the bells
Sweet silver bells
All seem to say
Throw cares away

Christmas is here
Bringing good cheer
To young and old
Meek and the bold

Ding dong ding dong
That is their song
With joyful ring
All caroling. (Oh! Oh! Ahh)

One seems to hear
Words of good cheer
From everywhere (From everywhere)
Filling the air

Oh how they pound, (Oh how they pound)
Raising the sound
O'er hill and dale
Telling their tale. (Telling their tale)

Gaily they ring
While people sing
Songs of good cheer
Christmas is here

Merry, Merry, Merry, Merry Christmas, (Merry, Merry, Merry, Merry Christmas)
Merry, Merry, Merry, Merry Christmas. (Merry, Merry, Merry, Merry Christmas)

On on they send
On without end
Their joyful tone
To every home

Ah! Ah! Ah!

Ding dong, ding dong, ding dong, ding dong

La, la, la, la...

Hark how the bells, (Hark how the bells)
Sweet silver bells
All seem to say, (All seem to say)
Throw cares away (Throw cares away)

Christmas is here
Bringing good cheer
To young and old
Meek and the bold

(Bringing good cheer, oh)

Oh how they pound, (Oh how they pound)
Raising the sound
O'er hill and dale
Telling their tale (Telling their tale)

Gaily they ring
While people sing
Songs of good cheer
Christmas is here

Merry, Merry, Merry, Merry Christmas
(Merry, Merry, Merry, Merry Christmas)

Merry, Merry, Merry, Merry Christmas
(Merry, Merry, Merry, Merry Christmas)

Ah! Ah! Ah!

La, la, la, la...

TriviaEdit

Song originEdit

"Carol of the Bells" was composed by world renowned Ukranian composer and choral conductor Mykola Leontovych in 1904. It was based on an old Ukraninain folk chant called Shchedryk. It was later adapted into its current version by Peter J. Wilhousky who added the lyrics sometime in the 1930's.
