Lirik How Long Can This Go On


One very familiar type of song is the christmas carol

Although it is perhaps a bit out of season at this time

However I'm informed by my disk jockey friends of whom I have none

In order to get a song popular by christmas time you have to start plugging it well in advance

So here goes

It has always seemed to me after all

That christmas with its spirit of giving o


Us all a wonderful opportunity each year to reflect on what we all most sincerely and deeply believe in

I refer of course to money

And yet none of the christmas carols that you hear on the radio or in the street even attempt to capture the true spirit of christmas as we celebrate it in the unit


That is to say the commercial spirit

So I should like to offer the following christmas carol for next year as being perhaps a bit more appropriate


Christmas time is here by golly

Disapproval would be folly

Deck the halls with hunks of holly

Fill the cup and don't say when

Kill the turkeys ducks and chickens

Mix the punch drag out the d**kens

Even though the prospect sickens


Brother here we go again

On christmas day you can't get sore

Your fellow man you must adore

There's time to rob him all the more


The other three hundred and sixty four

Relations sparing no expense'll

Send some useless old utensil


Or a matching pen and pencil


Just the thing I need how nice

It doesn't matter how sincere it


Is nor how heartfelt the spirit

Sentiment will not endear it


What's important is the price

Hark the herald tribune sings

Advertising wondrous things


God rest ye merry merchants

May you make the yuletide pay


Angels we have heard on high

Tell us to go out and buy

So let the raucous sleigh bells jingle

Hail our dear old friend kris kringle

Driving his reindeer across the sky

Don't stand underneath when they fly by

Actually I did rather well myself this last christmas


The nicest present I received was a gift certificate good at any hospital for a lobotomy



Rather thoughtful
