The Hymns and Carols of Christmas

Oh Stop Ye Bustling Shoppers

Howard Ryan

To The Tune Of God Rest You Merry, Gentlemen

1. Oh stop ye bustling shoppers for there's something I must say
If you would spare a moment all the stores won't run away
Big business has been telling us what Christmas means today

Now it's time we decided for ourselves, for ourselves
Oh it's time we decided for ourselves

2. To some folks Christmas means a time for gathering with friends
And enemies might take it for a time to make amends
But business says it's time for plastic gifts and selfish ends

Now it's time we decided for ourselves, for ourselves
Oh it's time we decided for ourselves

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

Now it's time we decided for ourselves, for ourselves
Oh it's time we decided for ourselves
