Facts:
  • Was a local hit in Philadelphia. (A-Log)
  • Came about due to financial troubles that lead singer Scott Evans had at the time. He told a friend "It's gonna be a credit card Christmas!"; inspiration struck seconds later. (A-Log)
  • Song Lyrics:
    (Christmastime, Christmastime,
    Christmastime is here)

    Every year it's the same old story
    You turn around and it's Christmas again
    I try to save, but I spend all my money
    on things I don't need in the end

    Day in and day out I put my time in,
    but my Christmas Club's still long overdue
    That's okay and my bankers still loves me
    'cause all around, plastic will do

    (chorus:)
    It's gonna be a credit card Christmas
    I ain't got no money to spend
    It's gonna be a credit card Christmas
    The charging season begins

    (Christmastime, Christmastime,
    Christmastime is here)

    Jesus saves and his birthday is coming
    I'm glad he can save me 'cause I never do
    Oh Lord, won't you help me
    I got no more money
    I'm always in the red and I'm blue

    (chorus)

    Mom needs a vacuum and Dad needs new tools
    And Rich, he'd like a new sweater
    Denise asked for new shoes and Liz'll get boots
    I don't care what they get
    I think that coal would be better, yeah

    Season's Greetings, have a Merry Christmas
    and here's to a very happy holiday
    A new year full of joy and sharing
    and a lower interest rate

    (chorus X 2)

    The charging season begins
    The charging season begins
    The charging season begins....
    (Stavro Arrgolus)
