Christmas Carols

God rest ye merry gentleman
Let nothing you dismay;
For Jesus Christ your saviour,
is here now on display.

Hark the herald angels sing,
glory to the cash till ring.
Peace on earth and mercy mild,
Jesus in the shops defiled.

And lo, what sayeth that sign
above the sacred star?
'These christmas carols are for sale
at the record bar.'
