  • nightmare before christmastaki parçalardan biridir.
    jack skellington christmas townı halloween town sakinlerine anlatmaya çalışırken söylenir.
    santa claus'un sandy claws olması da bu parçaya rastlar.
    sözleri aşağıdaki gibidir:

    there were objects so peculiar
    they were not to be believed
    all around, things to tantalize my brain

    it's a world unlike anything i've ever seen
    and as hard as i try
    i can't seem to describe
    like a most improbable dream

    but you must believe when i tell you this
    it's as real as my skull and it does exist
    here, let me show you

    this is a thing called a present
    the whole thing starts with a box

    a box?
    is it steel?

    are there locks?

    [harlequin demon;]
    is it filled with a pox?

    [devil, werewolf and harlequin demon;]
    a pox
    how delightful, a pox

    if you please
    just a box with bright-colored paper
    and the whole thing's topped with a bow

    a bow?
    but why?
    how ugly
    what's in it?
    what's in it?

    that's the point of the thing, not to know

    it's a bat
    will it bend?

    [creature under the stairs;]
    it's a rat
    will it break?

    [undersea gal;]
    perhaps it's the head that i found in the lake

    listen now, you don't understand
    that's not the point of christmas land

    now, pay attention
    now we pick up an oversized sock
    and hang it like this on the wall

    [mr. hyde;]
    oh, yes! does it still have a foot?

    [medium mr. hyde;]
    let me see, let me look

    [small mr. hyde;]
    is it rotted and covered with gook?

    hmm, let me explain
    there's no foot inside, but there's candy
    or sometimes it's filled with small toys

    [mummy and winged demon;]
    small toys

    [winged demon;]
    do they bite?

    do they snap?

    [winged demon;]
    or explode in a sack?

    [corpse kid;]
    or perhaps they just spring out
    and scare girls and boys

    what a splendid idea
    this christmas sounds fun
    why, i'll fully endorse it
    let's try it at once

    everyone, please now, not so fast
    there's something here that you don't quite grasp
    well, i may as well give them what they want

    and the best, i must confess, i have saved for the last
    for the ruler of the christmas land
    is a fearsome king with a deep mighty voice
    least that's what i've come to understand

    and i've also heard it told
    that he's something to behold
    like a lobster, huge and red
    and sets out to slay with his rain gear on
    carting bulging sacks with his great big arms
    that is, so i've heard it said

    and on a dark, cold night
    under full moonlight
    he flies into a fog
    like a vulture in the sky
    and they call him sandy claws

    well, at least they're excited
    though they don't understand
    that special kind of feeling in christmas land
    oh, well..."
  • nightmare before christmas filminde kullanılan şarkıların ünlü gruplar tarafından tekrar yorumlandığı bir albüm mevcut.

    bu şarkıyı da the polyphonic spree tekrar icra etmiştir. şarkıda müthiş underrated kalan bir gitar solosu mevcut, baya baya dinlediğim en iyi sololardan sayabilirim.
