The Twelve Days of Christmas 聖誕節的十二天

The Twelve Days of Christmas 聖誕節的十二天是一首很可愛的聖誕歌,從很多年前在教兒童美語的時候,這就是我最喜歡的聖誕歌,很可愛的呢。

 

上星期同學下課後來問我說這個歌詞的意義。恩,問倒我了耶。猛一看有些東西還真的忘了,再說歌詞的意義有時候真的很難解釋,有時候真的也沒什麼意義。聽聽周杰倫的歌或各式各樣新歌就知道了,呵呵。果然我上wikipedia研究一下,http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Twelve_Days_of_Christmas_(song),果然裡面有說,這是從法國傳到英國的民謠,歌詞為了押韻,有時候可能沒什麼意義。主要是說在聖誕假期中,真愛true love每天送來的不同的禮物。到youtube裡面看看有各式各樣不同的好玩好笑的錄影帶。我挑了一個把禮物都圖片化的,一看就很容易理解。還有一個搖滾版附歌詞的。同學可以參考看看。詳細歌詞在下面。

 

另外我在找錄影帶的時候,看到一個超好笑的影帶,送來的那些怪怪的禮物很令人困擾的吧,所以呢那位腔調甚重的男士回信抱怨不斷,每天越收禮物越生氣,看到我笑到一個不行。也一併放在下面。

 

今天回家的時候看到美麗的下弦月,難得看到漂亮的一彎明月,真開心。然後呢今天很難得的,餓到前胸貼後背。呵呵,真是誇張的說法。這年頭,誰會餓肚子啊?我很久沒有餓成這樣了。因為早上吃的晚,中午懶得買,所以把早餐吃掉後外加一堆水果,還有吃了我的餅乾蛋糕,亂吃一通。晚上回到家已經餓到不行,但是呢又想看AXN的Chef Academy,所以死撐著。雖然家裡有一堆零食,也有水果餅乾蛋糕,但是想說等會兒去吃麵,所以呢就給它餓一下。看完電視覺得,啊,餓到一個發慌,還好沒胃痛,但是呢覺得,好久沒有餓過的感覺,現代人總是吃太飽,有機會餓一下還不錯的感覺。不過呢,可能因為餓過頭,一不小心吃得太飽,撐到一個不行,厚。結果一回家,因為昨天也摸到很晚,沒睡飽,所以呢從八點一直睡到快十一點。真是夠了。

 

還是很累,想說寫一下,準備上床了。明天想出去走走。這個星期比較輕鬆一點,雖然還是有很多事要做。開心。加油!
