Silver Bells

The song Silver Bells was originally titled Tinkle Bells, and first appeared in “The Lemon Drop Kid,” a 1951 film starring Bob Hope.

The co-composer Ray Evans said, “We never thought that tinkle had a double meaning until Jay, his partner went home and his wife said, ‘Are you out of your mind? Do you know what the word tinkle is?’” Referring to the fact that it is another word for urination often used with children. If that happened today, they would put him in jail, ban the song, delete any reference to it on Google, and Congress would vote to expunge the word from all dictionaries.
