First Verse:
Beneath the light of a bright starry night Sat a lonely little Indian maid.
"No lover's sweet serenade, has ever won me."
As in a dream, it would seem, down a stream, Gaily paddling his tiny canoe,
A chieftain longing to woo, sang her this song:
 
Chorus:
"Your voice is ringing, my Silver Bell.
Under its spell, I've come to tell you of the
Love I am bringing, o'er hill and dell.
Happy will dwell my Silver Bell."
