Nuttin for Christmas

The lyrics to this lovely song came from my local newspaper. An article by Mark Saal.

Nuttin For Christmas

Verse 1
My parents broke my piggy bank
It's the e-con-o-my
To fill our SUV's gas tank
It's the economy
We can't afford to deck the hall
Buy stuff at the shopping mall
Mommy's turned to alcohol
It's the economy

Chorus:
Oh, I'm gettin nuttin for Christmas
Folks here on Main Street are mad
I'm gettin nuttin for Christmas
Cause Wall Street's been nuttin but bad

Verse 2
December sure is looking bleak
Blame Ben Bernanke
Against the yen the dollar's weak
Blame Ben Bernanke
They bailed out banks not in the black
Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac
Now GM wants it's cash stack
Blame Ben Bernanke

Chorus
Oh, I'm gettin nuttin for Christmas
Mommy says Daddy got canned
I'm gettin nuttin for Christmas
So you sub-prime folks can pound sand

Verse 3
They say we're in a re-cess-ion
There goes the GDP
And headed for a de-press-ion
There goes the GDP
But I believe, I truly feel
Our economy will heal
Course, I still think Santa's real
There goes the GDP

Chorus
Yes, I'm gettin nuttin for Christmas
It's such a sad holiday
I'm getting nuttin for Christmas
Cause Dad lost his 401K

  3. i'm such an optimist. in spite of a crappy economy, my life has never been better. i have a nice car, i own a home, we have food in our fridge.

    it's all about living within your means.

    i know there are some out there who are having a hard time...i do not mean to be crass. but this is alllll what we make of it.

    i sang the song as i read it and i laughed.

    merry christmas, connie!

  4. It is too true but yeah, it's funny. Hey if you don't laugh, you'll cry. I'd rather do the former.
