Economy’s good and this is the day
A time when commercials attempt to sway,
Inviting us to come their way.
“We offer the best,” we hear them say.
“With little work and lots of play.”
Your mind calls out for common sense
As you spend all your dollars and even your cents.
Now you’re broke so what do you do?
Take the card that Visa sent you.
Well, let us go, just bring it on
We have to rush, before stuff’s gone.
I’ll grab my Visa and my Master Card
Let me get the piggy bank; I’ll try hard
To leave it so it’s only slightly marred.
Now we cannot be denied
We’re better than Santa, we’ll hurt his pride.
But we’ll hit the shops, far and wide
Can’t buy everything but we’ll sure try.
We forget last year, and how much we cried.
