Ding Dong Day

Christmas, ain’t got no money, ain’t got no job, ain’t got no honey
Snowflakes, aren’t so darn funny, when there’re bills to pay and you ain’t got no sleigh

Ding dong, ding dong, ding dong, ding dong, ding deigh

Christmas, guaranteed, oh my, oh my, how our pockets bleed
Buying gifts, we don’t need, gifts to throw away, and we pay, pay, pay

CHORUS:
It costs too much at the super-center store
So there ain’t gonna be no wreath at my door
But a Child was born, the angels sing
With my voice I can make the bells ring

Ding dong, ding dong, ding dong, ding dong, ding deigh
Ding dong, ding dong, ding dong, ding dong day

My tree, won’t even unfold, it’s lost its limbs and it’s full of mold
Its star shines, crayon gold, paper-mache from my kindergarten play

Oh Christmas tree, Oh Christmas tree, how faithful are thy branches

Christmas, is so darn pretty, lights in the sky, lights in the city
Christmas, ain’t it a pity, when all we see is a shopping spree

CHORUS:
Ding dong . . .

Walk tall past the brawl at the shopping mall
Where they claw and they crawl to buy what the saw
And rant and pant as time grows scant
A trap for a sap—wrapping things to unwrap
We taste and baste to increase our waist
What we slave to save goes in one big wave
Buy a bat for a brat and a hat for the cat
Buy a rat for the cat and another bat

CHORUS:
There’re just too many good girls and boys
So Santa’s gonna have to make cheaper toys . . .

Christmas, I feel the spirit, I may not see it but I sure can hear it
I know, I’m getting near it, when I hear the sound, all around

Ding dong, ding dong, ding dong, ding dong, ding deigh
Ding dong, ding dong, ding dong—It’s Christmas day
