E’ una canzone particolare davvero che mostra il Natale in modo meno sdolcinato. Parliamo di Fairytale of New York ed ecco che vi riportiamo il testo:

FAIRYTALE OF NEW YORK – The Pogues

It was christmas eve babe

In the drunk tank

An old man said to me

Won’t see another one

But then they sang a son

The Rare Old Mountain Dew

I turned my face away

And dreamed about you

Got on a lucky one

Came in eighteen to one

I’ve got a feeling

This year’s for me and you

So happy christmas

I love you baby

I can see another one

Where all our dreams come true.

 

They got cars big as bars

They got rivers of gold

But the wind goes right through you

It’s no place for the old

When you first took my hand

On a cold christmas day

You promised me broadway was waiting for me

You’re handsome you’re pretty

Queen of new york city

When the band finished playing they hold out from more

Sinatra was swinging all the drunks they were singing

We kissed on a corner

And danced through the night

 

And the boys from the NYPD choir were singing Galway Bay

And the bells were ringing out

For christmas day

 

You’re a bum you’re a punk

You’re an old slut on junk

Lying there almost dead on a drip in that bed

You scambag you maggot

You cheap lousy fagott

Happy christmas you arseI pray god it’s our last.

 

And the boys of the NYPD choir were singing Galway Bay

And the bells were ringing out

For christmas day.

 

I could have been someone

Well so can everyone

You took my dreams from me

When I first found you

I took them with me babe

I put them with my own

Can’t make it all alone

I’ve built my dreams around you

 

And the boys of the NYPD choir were singing Galway Bay

And the bells were ringing out

For christmas day
