Natale: Winter Wonderland, un testo del 1934

di isayblog4 0

Non importa quanto tempo sia passato: il Natale agli inizi del Novecento e anche prima era sentito esattamente come adesso. Se è vero che ognuno di noi dentro l’animo si ritrova solo a provare emozioni e suggestioni, è altrettanto sicuro che è facile condividere uno spirito rinnovato e tanta gioia in queste settimane di festa. Winter Wonderland è datata ormai, ma proprio per questo regala una magia in più per il 25 dicembre. Ecco le parole:

Winter Wonderland

 

(Has long intro but worth the wait!)

 

Dick Smith, Felix Bernard 1934

 

Sleigh bells ring, are you listening,

 

in the lane, snow is glistening

 

A beautiful sight,

 

we’re happy tonight,

 

walking in a winter wonderland.

 

 

 

Gone away is the bluebird,

 

here to stay is a new bird

 

He sings a love song,

 

as we go along,

 

walking in a winter wonderland.

In the meadow we can build a snowman,

 

Then pretend that he is Parson Brown

 

He’ll say: Are you married?

 

we’ll say: No man,

 

But you can do the job

 

when you’re in town.

Later on, we’ll conspire,

as we dream by the fire

To face unafraid,

 

the plans that we’ve made,

 

walking in a winter wonderland.

Sleigh bells ring, are you listening,

 

in the lane, snow is glistening

 

A beautiful sight,

 

we’re happy tonight,

 

walking in a winter wonderland.

 

Gone away is the bluebird,

 

here to stay is a new bird

 

He sings a love song,

 

as we go along,

 

walking in a winter wonderland.

 

In the meadow we can build a snowman,

 

and pretend that he’s a circus clown

 

We’ll have lots of fun with mister snowman,

 

until the alligators knock him down.

When it snows, ain’t it thrilling,

 

Though your nose gets a chilling

 

We’ll frolic and play, the Eskimo way,

walking in a winter wonderland.

Walking in a winter wonderland,

 

walking in a winter wonderland.
