Conrad Murray, the doctor convicted of manslaughter and sent to prison for the 2009 death of Michael Jackson, unexpectedly burst into song to CNN's Anderson Cooper during one of his first interviews since he was sent to jail. He said the song "tells my story," reports cnn.com.
The song he chose? Nat King Cole's "The Little Boy that Santa Claus Forgot." He sang it over the phone to a seemingly stunned Cooper who just sat in silence and cocked his head.
Here are the lyrics to the song, courtesy of metrolyrics.com:
He's the little boy that Santa Claus forgot And goodness knows, he didn't want a lot He sent a note to Santa For some soldiers and a drum It broke his little heart When he found Santa hadn't come In the street, he envies all those lucky boys Then wanders home to last year's broken toys I'm so sorry for that laddie, he hasn't got a daddy The little boy that Santa Claus forgot You know, Christmas comes But once a year for every girl and boy The laughter and the joy they find in each brand new toy I'll tell you of a little boy that lives across the way This little fella's Christmas is just another day He's the little boy that Santa Claus forgot And goodness knows, he didn't want a lot In the street, he envies all those lucky boys Then wanders home to last year's broken toys I'm so sorry for that laddie, he hasn't got a daddy The little boy that Santa Claus forgot
The doctor spoke to Cooper the same day jury selection began for the Jackson family's wrongful death lawsuit against event promoter AEG Live for negligence in hiring Murray as Jackson's private physician.
