Santa Baby

怎么今年开始介绍圣诞歌,朋友问。我喜欢圣诞歌,好歌一起行赏,不是吗?

圣诞节距离今天有5天之长。说长,其实不恰当,5天不长也不短,很矛盾。

圣诞节让人想起圣诞老人。但我不是要介绍圣诞老人,而是圣诞宝宝。

圣诞宝宝在50年代初是一首非常爆红的圣诞歌。它和其他的圣诞歌不一样,它主要缠绕在女人在圣诞佳节时分的奢侈礼物与追求如貂皮,游艇和蒂凡尼(Tiffany)装饰品。

这首歌原唱者是Eartha Kitt。她抛弃惯有的圣诞高昂,凝重的唱腔,以性感懒惰的唱法,唱出人性的诱惑和渴望。因这首歌也让她一炮而红。如今她高龄81岁,但不懈于演艺事业。她曾说过,这首歌是她一生中最喜欢的一首歌。圣诞宝宝后来由Madonna翻唱,灌录在1987 的 A Very Special Christmas专辑里, 成为金典之中的金典。

Santa baby, just slip a sable under the tree, for me
Been an awful good girl
Santa baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight

Santa baby, a '54 convertible too, light blue
I'll wait up for you dear Santa baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight

Think of all the fun I've missed
Think of all the fellas that I haven't kissed
Next year I could be just as good
If you'd check off my Christmas list
Boo doo bee doo

Santa baby, I wanna yacht and really that's
Not a lot
Been an angel all year
Santa baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight

Santa honey, one thing I really do need, the deed
To a platinum mine
Santa baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight

Santa cutie and fill my stocking with a duplex, and checks
Sign your 'X' on the line
Santa cutie, and hurry down the chimney tonight

Come and trim my Christmas tree
With some decorations bought at Tiffany
I really do believe in you
Let's see if you believe in me
Boo doo bee doo

Santa baby, forgot to mention one little thing, a ring
I don't mean on a phone
Santa baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight
Hurry down the chimney tonight
Hurry ... tonight

喜欢在夜晚听这首歌,特别有感觉。感觉圣诞悄悄地降临,福临奢侈的人间。
