I can hear the bells
Well, don't you hear 'em chime?
Can't you feel my heartbeat
Keeping perfect time?

And all because he touched me
He looked at me and stared
Yes, he bumped me
My heart was unprepared

When he tapped me
And knocked me off my feet
One little touch
Now my life's complete

'Cause when he nudged me
Love put me in a fix
Yes, it hit me
Just like a ton of bricks

Yes, my heart burst
Now I know what life's about
One little touch
And love's knocked me out

And I can hear the bells
My head is spinning
I can hear the bells
Something's beginning

Everybody says
That a girl who looks like me
Can't win his love
Well, just wait and see

'Cause I can hear the bells
Just hear them chiming
I can hear the bells
My temperature's climbing

I can't contain my joy
'Cause I finally found the boy
I've been missing
Listen, I can hear the bells

Round one
He'll ask me on a date
And then round two
I'll primp but won't be late

Because round three's
When we kiss inside his car
Won't go all the way
But I'll go pretty far

Round four
He'll ask me for my hand
And then round five
We'll book the wedding band

So by round six
Amber, much to your surprise
This heavyweight champion
Takes the prize

And I can hear the bells
My ears are ringing
I can hear the bells
The bridesmaids are singing

Everybody says
That a guy who's such a gem
Won't look my way
Well, the laugh's on them

'Cause I can hear the bells
My father will smile
I can hear the bells
As he walks me down the aisle

My mother starts to cry
But I can't see 'cause Link and I
Are French kissing
Listen, I can hear the bells

I can hear the bells
My head is reeling
I can hear the bells
I can't stop the pealing

Everybody warns
That he won't like what he'll see
But I know that he'll look
Inside of me, yeah

I can hear the bells
Today's just the start 'cause
I can hear the bells
And 'til death do us part

And even when we die
We'll look down from up above
Remembering the night
That we two fell in love

We both will shed a tear
And he'll whisper
As we're reminiscing

Listen, I can hear the bells
(We can hear the bells)
I can hear the bells
(We can hear the bells)
I can hear the bells
