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, that in order to get a song popular by Christmas
Time, you have to start plugging it well in advance. So here
It has always seemed to me after all, that Christmas,
With it's spirit of giving, offers 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 United States, 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 Dickens
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 heart felt 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 ye make the Yuletide pay
Angels we have heard on high
Tell us to go out and – buy!

So let the raucous sleighbells jingle
Hail our dear old friend Kriss 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.

    Frosty the snowman was a jolly happy soul,
    With a corncob pipe and a button nose
    And two eyes made out of coal.
    Frosty the snowman is a fairy tale, they say,
    He was made of snow but the children
    Know how he came to life one day.
    There must have been magic in that old silk hat they found.
    For when they placed it on his head
    He began to dance around.
    O, frosty the snowman
    Was alive as he could be,
    And the children say he could laugh
    And play just the same as you and me.
    Thumpetty thump thump,
    Thumpetty thump thump,
    Look at frosty go.
    Thumpetty thump thump,
    Thumpetty thump thump,
    Over the hills of snow.
    Frosty the snowman knew the sun was hot that day,
    So he said, "let's run and we'll have some fun
    Now before i melt away. "
    Down to the village,
    With a broomstick in his hand,
    Running here and there all
    Around the square saying,
    Catch me if you can.
    He led then down the streets of town
    Right to the traffic cop.
    And he only paused a moment when
    He heard him holler "stop! "
    For frosty the snowman
    Had to hurry on his way,
    But he waved goodbye saying,
    Don't you cry,
    I'll be back again someday. "
    Thumpetty thump thump thump,
    Thumpetty thump thump thump,
    Look at frosty go.
    Thumpetty thump thump thump,
    Over the hills of snow.
