- tune: Jingle Bells
Profits here, profits there, profits everywhere!
Christmas time is funny, smell money in the air.
Advertise, glamorize, fool you with a flair.
Let’s make sure that Christmas is a businesslike affair.
You’re eating all our lies and dashing to the stores,
Then all the prices rise and how the money pours.
If we don’t keep you drugged and watching your TV,
You might see hypocrisy! Where would business be?
We’ll tell you how to think and tell you what to try,
What to eat and drink, and how to live and die.
And if our plan succeeds, when Christmastime is nigh,
Instead of seeking peace and love, you’ll hunt for gifts to buy.
Angels we have heard on high
Tell us to go out and buy!
