A menos de un mes de Navidad, la galaxia sienta Cátedra

Porque todos cantareis el tamborilero.
Pero La galaxia os pone la versión original, con la introducción, entera, y además abajo la transcripción del vídeo: porque ninguno sabiais que el original es de David Bowie y Bing Crosby.
Por algo la Galaxia permanece.

(Peace On Earth: Ian Fraser/Larry Grossman/Alan Kohan)
(Little Drummer Boy: Katherine Davis/Henry Onorah/Harry Simone)

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

BC: It's a pretty theme, isn't it?
