==================================

It was almost Christmas time,
聖誕節就快到了

There I stood in another line
我又在那兒排隊

Tryin' to buy that last gift or two,
準備買最後的一、兩份禮物

Not really in the Christmas mood
還沒有真的感覺聖誕的氣紛當中

Standing right in front of me was
排在我前面的是一位

A little boy waiting anxiously
等到很急的小男孩

Pacing 'round like little boys do
就像一般小男生一樣的動來動去的

And in his hands he held a pair of shoes
而他的手中提了一雙鞋子

His clothes were worn and old,
他身上的衣服又破又舊

He was dirty from head to toe
他從頭到腳都髒髒的

And when it came his time to pay
而當排隊排到他時

I couldn't believe what I heard him say
我簡直無法相信我所聽到他說的話

Sir, I want to buy these shoes
先生,我想買這雙鞋

For my Mama, please
是要給我媽媽的、拜託你

It's Christmas Eve and these shoes are just her size
今天是聖誕夜而這雙鞋的尸寸剛好適合她

Could you hurry, sir,
請麻煩快點,先生

Daddy says there's not much time
爸爸說時間不多了

You see she's been sick for quite a while
因為媽媽已經病了很久了

And I know these shoes would make her smile
而我知道這雙鞋子可以讓她開心

And I want her to look beautiful if Mama meets Jesus tonight
而且如果今晚媽媽去見耶穌的話我要讓媽媽看起來漂亮

He counted pennies for what seemed like years
小男孩一毛一毛的數錢、數了好久

Then the cashier said, "Son, there's not enough here"
然後店員說,”小男孩、這兒的錢不夠”

He searched his pockets frantically
小男孩很急,拼命的搜口袋

Then he turned and he looked at me
然往他轉向身來看著我

He said Mama made Christmas good at our house, though most years she just did without
他說媽媽這幾年下來在什麼都沒有的情況下將家裡聖誕節打點的很好

Tell me Sir, what am I going to do
先生,能不能告訴我、我現在該怎麼辦?

Somehow I've got to buy her these Christmas shoes
無論如何我一定要買這雙聖誕舞鞋給她

So I laid the money down,
所以我把錢拿出來

I just had to help him out
我一定要幫助他

I'll never forget the look on his face when
我將絕對無法忘記他臉上那時的表情

He said Mama's gonna look so great
他說媽媽將會很漂亮

Sir, I want to buy these shoes
先生,我想買這雙鞋

For my Mama, please
通是要給我媽媽的、拜託你

It's Christmas Eve and these shoes are just her size
今天是聖誕夜而這雙鞋的尸寸剛好適合她

Could you hurry, sir,
請麻煩快點,先生

Daddy says there's not much time

You see she's been sick for quite a while
因為媽媽已經病了很久了

And I know these shoes would make her smile
而我知道這雙鞋子可以讓她開心

And I want her to look beautiful if Mama meets Jesus tonight
而且如果今晚媽媽去見耶穌的話我要讓媽媽看起來漂亮

I knew I'd caught a glimpse of heaven's love
我當時馬上就知道我目瞥了天堂聖潔的愛

As he thanked me and ran out
當小男孩向我道謝後就趕著走了時

I knew that God had sent that little boy
我知道小男孩是上帝派來

To remind me just what Christmas is all about
提醒我聖誕的意義是什麼
