The Hymns and Carols of Christmas

Slow Down Ye Frantic Shoppers

Authorship Unknown

To The Tune of God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen

1. Slow down ye frantic shoppers for thereís something we must say
If you would spare a moment all the stores would go away
Big business has been telling us what Christmas means today

Now itís time we decided for ourselves, for ourselves
Yes itís time we decided for ourselves.

2. To some folks Christmas means a time for gathering with friends
And enemies might take it as a time to make amends
But TV says itís time for pricey gifts and selfish ends

Now itís time we decided for ourselves, for ourselves
Yes itís time we decided for ourselves.

3. Some people feel that Christmas is when Jesus makes a call
For others itís a time to stress good will and peace to all
But advertisers tell us it means Santaís at the mall

Now itís time we decided for ourselves, for ourselves
Yes itís time we decided for ourselves.
