David Bowie & Bing Crosby – Little drummer boy


(1977)

[David Bowie] : Hello… you’re the new butler?
[Bing Crosbie] : Hahaha! Well, it’s been a long time since I’ve been the new anything!
[David Bowie] : What’s happened to Hudson?
[Bing Crosbie] : I guess he’s changing.
[David Bowie] : Yeah, he does that a lot, doesn’t he? Uhm… Oh, I’m David Bowie, I live
down the road.
[Bing Crosbie] : Oh!
[David Bowie] : Sir Percival let’s me use his piano if he not around. He’s not around, is
he?
[Bing Crosbie] : I can honestly say I haven’t seen him, but come on in! Come in!
[David Bowie] : But uh…
[Bing Crosbie] : Come on in!
[David Bowie] : Are you related to sir Percival?
[Bing Crosbie] : Well, distantly…
[David Bowie] : Oh, you’re not the poor relation from America, right?
[Bing Crosbie] : Ha! Gee… news sure travels fast, doesn’t it? I’m Bing.
[David Bowie] : Oh, I’m pleased to meet you. You’re the one that sings, right?
[Bing Crosbie] : Well, right or wrong, I sing either way.
[David Bowie] : Oh well, I sing too.
[Bing Crosbie] : Oh good! What kind of singing?
[David Bowie] : Mostly the contemporary stuff. Do you eh… do you like modern music?
[Bing Crosbie] : Oh, I think it’s marvellous! Some of it’s really fine. But tell me, have you ever listened to any of the older fellows?
[David Bowie] : Oh yeah, sure. I like ah… John Lennon and the other one with eh…Harry Nilsson.
[Bing Crosbie] : Mmm… you go back that far, uh?
[David Bowie] : Yeah, I’m not as young as I look.
[Bing Crosbie] : Haha, none of us is these days!
[David Bowie] : In fact I’ve got a six year old son. And he really gets excited around the Christmas holiday-thing.
[Bing Crosbie] : Do you go in for anything of the traditional things in the… Bowie household, Christmas time?
[David Bowie] : Oh yeah, most of them really. Presents, tree, decorations, agents sliding down the chimney…
[Bing Crosbie] : What??
[David Bowie] : Oh, I was just seeing if you were paying attention.
[Bing Crosbie] : Haha!
[David Bowie] : Actually, our family do most of the things that other families do. We
sing the same songs.
[Bing Crosbie] : Do you?
[David Bowie] : Oh, I even have a go at ‘White Christmas’.
[Bing Crosbie] : You do, eh!
[David Bowie] : And this one. This is my son’s favourite. Do you know this one?
[Bing Crosbie] : Oh, I do indeed, it’s a lovely theme.

And they told me pa-ram-pam-pam-pam
A new-born king to see pa-ram-pam-pam-pam
Our finest gifts we bring pa-ram-pam-pam-pam
Ra-pam-pam-pam, ra-pam-pam-pam

Peace on Earth, can it be
Years from now, perhaps we’ll see
See the day of glory
See the day, when men of good will
Live in peace, live in peace again

Peace on Earth, can it be

Every child must be made aware
Every child must be made to care
Care enough for his fellow man
To give all the love that he can

I pray my wish will come true
For my child and your child too
He’ll see the day of glory
See the day when men of good will
Live in peace, live in peace again

Peace on Earth, can it be
Can it be

[Bing Crosbie] : It’s a pretty theme, isn’t it?
