The Hymns and Carols of Christmas

God Rest You Poor Small Businessmen

To The Tune of God Rest You Merry, Gentlemen

Authorship Unknown

1. God Rest You poor small businessmen
Who've managed to survive;
Be glad in this e-con-o-my
That you are still alive;
Give shouts of praise at Christmas time
When folks who buy appear;

There's a chance...you'll break even for the year--
For the whole year--
There's a chance that you'll break even for the year

2. The chain stores and con-glom-er-ates
Have brought you to your knees;
High taxes, rent and labor costs
Have caught you in a squeeze;
The cost of goods keeps going up--
Inflation's running on--

So give thanks....you can buy cheap from Taiwan--
Good old Taiwan--
So give thanks that you can buy cheap from Taiwan
