(by Charles Wesley 1739, revised 2003)
Hark the herald angels sing,
'Buy some more of everything!'
Cash or check of COD,
Christmas lifts the GDP."
Harried, all ye shoppers rise,
charge your bank cards to the skies,
wish economists proclaim:
'Spending is the Yuletide air!'
Hark the herald angels Sing,
'Busy some more of everything!'
Tom Wobker, The Bard of Sherman Avenue
