Song #3: "A Walmart Christmas Carol"

Here is a new Christmas classic, written this morning. If you must, you can listen to me singing the song (badly) or you can sing it to yourself with the full lyrics below.

A Walmart Christmas Carol
(Sung to the tune of "Silver Bells")
In November
And December
There's a chill in the air.
In the mall there's a feeling of Christmas.
Children begging,
parents wond'ring
how to pay for it all.
The solution they come to
is clear....

Credit cards, Credit cards.
It's Christmas time at the Wal-Mart.
Ch-ching-a-ling, merchants sing,
"You don't have to pay for it now."

Chinese labor,
Almost slav'ry,
Bought for pennies a day,
Making things that are pretty but useless.
Buy the product,
Never use it,
That's what most people do,
But the burden remains all the year.

Credit cards, Credit cards.
It's Christmas time at the Wal-Mart.
Ch-ching-a-ling, merchants sing,
"You don't have to pay for it now."

In recession,
Unemployment,
Failing economy,
Let's remember the spirit of Christmas.
Buy the product.
Buy the service.
Buy whatever you can,
'Cause the bill won't come due 'til next year.

Credit cards, Credit cards.
It's Christmas time at the Wal-Mart.
Ch-ching-a-ling, merchants sing,
"You don't have to pay for it now."
