Weihnachtslieder

Jo. Schöne Weih­nachts­lie­der. Werden ab und zu im Radio ge­spielt…

Heute ist mir eines ganz be­son­ders auf­ge­fal­len. Schon etwas älter, aber das gilt ja für recht viele Weih­nachts­lie­der? Und weil die (Vor-)Weih­nachts­zeit ja sehr viel mit kaufen und schen­ken und Freude und Glück zu tun hat (je mehr Ge­schen­ke, desto breiter das Grinsen und desto größer ist schließ­lich die Freude) passt das Lied recht gut …

Hier die Lyrics zu einem meiner Fa­vo­ri­ten:

We live in a greedy little world
that teaches every little boy and girl
To earn as much as they can pos­si­bly
Then turn around and spend it foo­lish­ly
We've created us a credit card mess
We spend the money that we don't possess
Our re­li­gi­on is to go and blow it all
So it's shop­pin' every Sunday at the mall

All we ever want is more
A lot more than we had before
So take me to the nearest store
Can you hear it ring
It makes you wanna sing
It's such a be­au­ti­ful thing
Ka-ching!
Lots of diamond rings
The hap­pi­ness it brings
You'll live like a king
With lots of money and things

When you're broke go and get a loan
Take out another mort­ga­ge on your home
Con­so­li­da­te so you can afford
To go and spend some more when you get bored

All we ever want is more
A lot more than we had before
So take me to the nearest store
Can you hear it ring
It makes you wanna sing
It's such a be­au­ti­ful thing
Ka-ching!
Lots of diamond rings
The hap­pi­ness it brings
You'll live like a king
With lots of money and things

Let's swing
Dig deeper in your pocket
Oh, yeah, ha
Come on I know you've got it
Dig deeper in your wallet
Oh

All we ever want is more
A lot more than we had before
So take me to the nearest store
Can you hear it ring
It makes you wanna sing
It's such a be­au­ti­ful thing
Ka-ching!

Lots of diamond rings
The hap­pi­ness it brings
You'll live like a king
With lots of money and things
Can you hear it ring
It makes you wanna sing
You'll live like a king
With lots of money and things
Ka-ching!

Schön, nicht?
