............. LYRICS: Putting up the christmas tree Lights and ornaments are not free Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas Time to spend all your money Many presents I must get Gonna put me into debt Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas Time to spend all your money Even though things are on sale They will come late in the mail Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas Time to Spend all your money Got another credit card Making ends meet is so hard Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas Time to Spend all your money Christmas is a season of giving And the more you give The more you get, into debt So bust out those credit cards Ho ho ho I got busted shoplifting Gonna pawn my wedding ring Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas Time to spend all your money Service workers got the shaft Everywhere is understaffed Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas Time to spend all your money Sick of all these christmas songs Target lines are ten miles long Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas Time to spend all your money Wrapping up the pile of gifts After working triple shifts Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas Time to spend all your money

LYRICS:

Putting up the christmas tree
Lights and ornaments are not free
Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas
Time to spend all your money

Many presents I must get
Gonna put me into debt
Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas
Time to spend all your money

Even though things are on sale
They will come late in the mail
Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas
Time to Spend all your money

Got another credit card
Making ends meet is so hard
Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas
Time to Spend all your money

Christmas is a season of giving
And the more you give
The more you get, into debt
So bust out those credit cards
Ho ho ho

I got busted shoplifting
Gonna pawn my wedding ring
Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas
Time to spend all your money

Service workers got the shaft
Everywhere is understaffed
Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas
Time to spend all your money

Sick of all these christmas songs
Target lines are ten miles long
Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas
Time to spend all your money

Wrapping up the pile of gifts
After working triple shifts
Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas
Time to spend all your money
