There’s a Santa on every corner
And a Grinch on every street!
A tired look, but nary a smile
On every face you meet!
Tis the time of year to be jolly,
The season of joy and cheer!
But everyone’s getting more upset
As Christmas draws ever near!
Your shopping lists for Christmas gifts,
Far outweigh the pocketbook!
Plastic cards with strings attached
Getting everyone on the hook!
All too quickly Christmas is gone
And these seasonal feelings will fade,
Then we’ll send your credit card bill
And you’ll see what a mess you’ve made!
Merry Christmas from your credit card company
Where we’re always full of good cheer!
We own your paycheck forever now,
Wish it were Christmas all year!
