Marty Ingels sent us this. Speaks for itself:
“It’s beginning to look
a lot like Christmas”
(Marty Ingels Version)
It’s beginning to be a plastic Christmas
As the snow begins;
It’s expensive and very hard to lean on your credit card
And wait till all the scary bills come in.
But it’s critical that you give on Christmas,
Make the season last;
And you gotta be Santa Claus to everyone else because
They’ll promise you the Ghost of Christmas Past.

There’s stuff for Dotty & Billy & Martin & Millie
And everyone workin’ at Sid’s;
There’s Lois & Winnie & Mrs. McKinney;
The Cohens, The Franks and the Quids…
– AND EVERY SINGLE ONE OF EM’S GOT KIDS !!!!!!!
* * *
So I celebrate all my Loves at Christmas –
( Thirty Three, I fear; )
And I know as I shop the mall, I’ll be paying for it all
Till it snows next year.
