《聖誕單曲》The Killers & Jimmy Kimmel - Joel, The Lump Of Coal


Let's turn your pain and anger
Into something that shines bright!

  從 2006 年開始,美國搖滾樂團 The Killers 每年都會推出聖誕公益單曲,所得將全數捐給 Product Red 慈善機構,協助非洲地區對抗愛滋病。今年與美國知名脫口秀主持人 Jimmy Kimmel 合作,共同創作單曲「Joel, the Lump of Coal」,有趣舒適的氛圍中帶有一絲憂愁,就像外表剛硬的人,也有內心溫柔的一面;不管遭遇如何,都要常保樂觀,希望永遠都在。團長 Brandon Flowers 接受訪問時表示:「錄製聖誕歌曲很歡樂,而且不會感到壓力,希望我們製作專輯時也可以如此輕鬆愉快。」

PS. 前面是故意破音嗎 XD

Some time ago, at Santa's place
Up in the old North Pole
There lived a lump of anthracite
Whose parents called him Joel

Joel, Joel, the lump of coal
Happy as a lump can be
He just wants to keep Santa warm
And make the elves cozy

But Santa Claus had other plans
For Joel one fateful day
"Joel, you're just the lump I need
Come join me on my sleigh"

Joel, Joel, the lump of coal
Heart leapt up with joy
I'll soon be Santa's present to
A lucky girl or boy

We'll laugh and play together
And hold each other tight
Snuggle under clean white sheets
When we go to sleep at night

Then Santa's elves all laughed at Joel
You're in for a surprise
You're not a special Christmas gift
You're just a booby prize

What kid would ever want you?
You're filthy as can be
Now you have to go and live
With one who's been naughty

"But I make heat," poor Joel cried
"And electricity"
"You pollute the air with CO2 and mercury"

Joel, Joel, the lump of coal
Fell down upon his knees
I don't wanna live with a naughty kid
"Don't make me, Santa, please"

But Santa laughed his jolly laugh
"Ho, ho, you stupid lump
You're just the thing to teach this brat
That Santa ain't no chump, ho, ho"

So off they flew and, before he knew
Joel was in a sack
He cried and yelled to Santa Claus
"Why don't we just go back?"

And then came Christmas morning
And, much to Joel's surprise (Much to Joel's surprise)
He saw a boy with the saddest face
And tears were in his eyes (Tears were in his eyes)

He picked Joel up and held him
And said "You can be my friend" (Hey man, let's be friends)
I would've liked some presents but
You're what Santa chose to send (Santa chose to send)

It's true, I've been a naughty boy
And maybe that's a sin (Maybe that's a sin)
If this is how Santa treats the kids
I'm just glad that I'm not him

Joel, Joel, the lump of coal
Knew what he must do
He said "Now I know the reason why
I got sent to you"

'Cause when a person hurts inside
It turns him hard and cruel
But I know how to make your pain
Into a precious jewel

So take me in your hand, young man
And squeeze with all your might
Let's turn your pain and anger
Into something that shines bright

Then Joel, Joel, the lump of coal
He gave his life away
So that one good naughty little boy
Had a diamond on Christmas day

"How about a very YOLO Christmas?"
"How about a song where the players are gonna play play play and the haters are gonna hate hate hate?"
