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

Come, they told me. Pa-rum-pa-pum-pum
A new-born king to see. Pa-rum-pa-pum-pum
Our finest gifts we bring. Pa-rum-pa-pum-pum,
Rum-pa-pum-pum, Rum-pa-pum-pum

Peace on Earth. Can it be?
Years from now, perhaps we'll see.
See the day of glory
See the day
When men of goodwill
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 goodwill
Live in peace, live in peace again.

Peace on Earth. Can it be?
Can it be?

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