Merry Xmas Song (Pink Floyd)


pink_floydAnche i Pink Floyd hanno scritto una canzone natalizia! Merry Xmas Song , una rara performance vocale di Nick Mason, fu eseguita durante uno show radiofonico nel ’75. Secondo alcune fonti fu registrata durante le session per la soundtrack di “Zabriskie Point” nel dicembre ’69 a Roma. Mai incisa ufficialmente, è stata bootlegata per i fans più maniacali. Come si può ascoltare su Youtube, la performance venne sospesa per l’ilarità generale.


 

Testo

One, two, three, four

Here comes Santa in his sleigh
Those silver bells they sound so gay
His shiny sleigh is heaped with toys
To give to all good girls and boys

With dolls and gollywogs and clockwork trains
Trams, tin soldiers and little model planes
Going to fill your stocking so long as you’ve been good
And I’m sure that you have because you know you should

Middle eight!

“Have I got to sing that?”
“Yes!”
“No you don’t sing, you just say it.”
“Okay.”
“All right?”
“Right.”
“One, two, three…”

Cheerful face is wreathed in smiles
Can see him coming for miles and miles
As he passes by he’ll catch your ear
With “Merry Christmas guys and a Happy New Year!”

“Man!”
“Shout that as a cheery Christmas greeting, Alan.”
“Yeah, shout that one out, right?”

Turkey and sausages and Christmas pud
“Have another helping John!”
Oh, I don’t think I could
Christmas parcels under the tree
None for you and six for me!
