    Oh Little Bank Americard:


    Oh, little Bank Americard
    You bring me Christmas Cheer
    Without your clout
    I have no doubt
    No gifts I'd give this year.
    Your credit line allows me
    To run up bills quite large
    And when I'm through
    Exhausting you
    I'll use my Master Charge.

    (Same tune, sung in late February)

    Oh, little Bank Americard
    You bring me discontent
    I calculate
    Your int'rest rate
    Is over (twelve) percent.
    Each month, your cry for payments
    My letter-box bombards;
    I'm one more sap
    Caught in your trap
    Next year I'll just send cards.

    To quote Scrooge's maid;

    "In keeping with the situation"



    (sung to O little town of Bethlehem)

    O little card of Visa Gold,
    You credit crunch surprise,
    We spend and spend,
    You lend and lend,
    We watch your interest rise

    Now with those cheques you send us,
    We transfer all our debt,
    We kite our bills,
    While Visa thrills,
    They'll have our short hairs yet!

    -Doug

    Awesome Doug! I don't think many people are responding to this post because it's a little too real, lol.

    Credit is just a cover-up for people who can't afford to buy gifts.
    Pay cash, or don't buy gifts.

    PS. I didn't buy gifts. icon_lol.gif

    MuchMoreThanMuscle saidI do not believe in the material component of giving gifts on Christmas. So I cannot relate to holiday financial woes.

    But I will usually cook for people. That can get somewhat pricey too. icon_smile.gif


    icon_biggrin.gif So what's for supper? I'll bring the ice cream.

    Luckily I have already paid off for all the gifts I bought this year. No credit card debt is going to follow me to next year.

    I cook and buy gifts, so there.

    I've had villages waxing poetic over my mac and cheese

    We don't use credit; only cash. icon_wink.gif


    There was no way I was going to pass up this poet's corner, though!

    Si-lent night,
    Indigent night.
    All are broke,
    Foolish folk.
    Spent their money
    On things they didn’t need,
    Using credit from banks selling greed.
    Wishing interest were low-er,
    Till banks foreclose on their deed.

    We charge you a lot of interest
    We charge you a lot of interest
    And you better pay up!

    We give you a loan
    No matter your pay,
    If you don’t give us money,
    We take it away!

    We charge you a lot of interest
    We charge you a lot of interest
    We charge you a lot of interest
    And we make it real quick!

    We hand you the dough
    With no questions asked,
    When you can’t pay it right back,
    The collectors are tasked!

    We charge you a lot of interest
    We charge you a lot of interest
    We charge you a lot of interest
    And we’ll see you in court!

    Just hear those Blue Chips tumbl-ing
    Slip and stumbing, too
    Come on, it’s lovely timing
    For some insider trading with you.

    Outside the stocks are falling
    And friends are calling “Boo-Hoo!”
    Come on, it’s lovely timing
    For some insider trading with you.

    Hurry-up hurry-up hurry-up
    Let’s deal
    Don’t bother to fret
    We’re living in a wonderland of debt.

    Hurry-up hurry-up hurry-up it’s grand
    Just screwing the land
    We’re gliding along with the myth
    Of economies built on sand.

    Out butts are nice and covered
    And comfy cozy are we
    We’re snuggled up together like two
    Felons in prison would be.

    Let’s take the chance before us
    And steal a fortune or two
    Come on, it’s lovely timing
    For some insider trading with you.

    There’s a hearing at the offices of S -- E C
    It’ll be the perfect planting of a perfect plea
    We’ll be singing the lies we love to sing without a single truth
    In the hearing room while we watch the flashbulbs pop
    Pop! Pop! Pop!

    There’s a happy feeling nothing in the world can buy
    Whey they pass around corruption like a slice of pie
    It’ll nearly be like a friendly piece from Hannity and Beck
    These wonderful things are the things
    We remember just like a check.

    Just hear those Blue Chips tumbl-ing
    Slip and stumbing, too
    Come on, it’s lovely timing
    For some insider trading with you.

    Outside the stocks are falling
    And friends are calling “Boo-Hoo!”
    Come on, it’s lovely timing
