The Lyrics

For those who want something other than Montreal's transit strike to be complained about by Le Ra'akone.....here's something. Note that Rainbow Brite, that girl from the 80's, is Hallmark property. Here she represents Hallmark, as Mickey Mouse represents Disney. . Basically making fun of greeting card companies cashing in on holidays....was going to hold off 'till February 14th, but decided not to.
For the benefit of Rainbow Brite
There will be a sale tonight of Christmas cards
The standard choice will all be there
at prices that would be fair - for diamond shards
For men and women and children you love,
you'll hand them out by the fire!
Very far Ms. R is milking the world!
The celebrated Madame. R
That girl with the rainbow and the star will take your cash
Her goons will tell you buy them now
Pay up and don't have a cow, don't be rash
Rainbow Brite will reassure the holders
Their profits will be second to none
And of course Starlite will dance the waltz!

Of this hoopla we will be sick
As Madame R. pulls another trick, Christmas early...
And soon people will demonstrate
'Cause Christmas lights on October 8 will leave us surly
Having been some days in preparation
A splendid time is guaranteed for Hallmark
Because your average Joe is paying the bill
This parody was copyright in 2003, for the benefit of Le Ra'akone
