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
