Christmas Card From a Hooker in Minneapolis
-- Tom Waits

hey charlie i'm pregnant
and living on the 9th street
right above a dirty bookstore
off euclid avenue
and i stopped takin dope
and i quit drinkin whiskey
and my old man plays the trombone
and works out at the track

and he says that he loves me
even though its not his baby
and he says that he'll raise him up
like he would his own son
and he gave me a ring
that was worn by his mother
and he takes me out dancin
every saturday night.

and hey charlie i think about you
everytime i pass a fillin station
om account of all the grease
you used to wear in your hair
and i still have that record
of little anthony & the imperials
but someone stole my record player
now how do you like that?

hey charlie i almost went crazy
after mario got busted
so i went back to omaha to
live with my folks
but everyone i used to know
was either dead or in prison
so i came back to minneapolis
this time i think i'm gonna stay.

hey charlie i think i'm happy
for the first time since my accident
and i wish i had all the money
that we used to spend on dope
i'd buy me a used car lot
and i wouldn't sell any of em
i'd just drive a different car
every day, dependin on how
i feel

hey charlie for chrissakes
do you want to know the
truth of it?
i don't have a husband
he don't play the trombone
and i need to borrow money
to pay this lawyer
and charlie, hey
i'll be eligible for parole
come valentines day

嗨,查理。每次聽這首歌都非得灌上些酒不可,讓酒精
在血管裡騷動,好平復一些被勾動的情緒。嗨,查理。我沒
有懷孕也不需要律師,我沒有丈夫當然他也不在街上玩音樂
。我只不過是個抽煙喝酒的小糟老頭而已。嗨,查理。又一
年了的聖誕夜,在距離兩千年還有三百七十六天時,我在高
塔上思念一個人,而現在距離兩千年只剩不到十來天,她在
哪裡?而我的思念又轉移到誰身上去?嗨,查理。不用理會
這個晚上我的胡言亂語。也只是又一個啜了小酒,反覆聽歌
的尋常日子。

嗨,查理。嗨,查理。我們一塊兒再聽聽老湯姆的這首
歌,好不?

看到人家Beatles板在點唱Happy Xmas (War is over)
那湯姆板理所當然的應該點這首歌渡過今夜.湊景咩:)

看歌詞彷彿同耶誕沒什麼相關哦?!
那麼聽聽Cold Beer On A Hot Night這張bootleg裡頭的
Silent Night(Traditional)/XMas Card From A Hooker In Minneapolis
將會發現,耶誕節怎麼可以少了這把聲音?

說實話,平常很少聽湯姆的
但這種時節一年一度拿出來祭祭,並不為過的吧!

聽這六分多鐘的版本
酒氣悲涼......
想起多年前朋友說過,每年此刻
喝著橡木桶免費試飲的伏特加
臉紅耳熱的,與老湯姆一起醉倒在寒冬的歌聲中,總要心情得不得了

79年澳洲的現場實況
湯姆阿伯的咬字實在還是讓人不能恭維
聽不出唸唱的是啥子鬼
可就是有辦法在二十多年後依舊打動人心
讓你在每年的這個時刻無法不拿出來溫溫
檢視起這一年自己又過了多少麻木不仁的日子

尤其是前段的Silent Night,
湯姆阿伯的詮釋
不知怎地,教人分外覺得淒涼復又溫暖
這兩種情緒是怎生可以攪和在一起?

但不管,耶誕夜,
循例聽聽歌曲。耶誕快樂!*^^*
