Oh, by gosh, by golly…

Standard

Oh, by gosh, by golly
It’s time for foolishness and folly
Spending money to buy your honey
Something you can’t afford

Oh, by gosh, by jingle
You feel your wallet all a-tingle
Overconsuming, somehow assuming
Some bills can be ignored

Then comes that big day
And opening all the gifts —
Seeing discarded wrapping
Doesn’t give¬†your spirit a lift

Oh, by gosh, by golly
It’s time for foolishness and folly
Junky surpises, clothes the wrong sizes
Returning a present or two —
Retailers whisper, “Happy Holidays” to you


With apologies to Mr. Sinatra
