Tune of the Day: Kling, Glöckchen
Traditional German Christmas carol
The title of this 19th-century Christmas carol means “Ring, Little Bell”. The lyrics to it were written by Karl Enslin to a traditional German folk tune; according to other sources, however, the music was written in 1884 by German composer Benedikt Widmann.
Ring, little bell, ring-a-ling-a-ling,
Ring, little bell, ring!
Let me in, you kids,
So cold is the winter,
Open the doors for me,
Don't let me freeze!
