Bad King Wenceslas


All the fundraisers looked out

On the feast of Stephen

We need more than pocket change

In order to break even

Get a phone list, volunteers

Every number, call it

And a clever slogan will

Open up their wallet


Donít give to your family

In the name of Santa Claus

Give unto our group instead

For it is a good cause

Buy our overpriced goodies

That you do not need

And after our overhead

The poor we might feed



Send a letter ring a bell

Ask for a donation

Hand out fliers at the door

To the congregation

For to have a fundraiserís

The reason for the season

And to raid their bank account

While the weatherís freeziní
