The Lyrics

I have to admit...I love holiday shopping!
I love the carols and I love the lights
Love eggnog for a drink, it keeps me feelin' right
But I love shopping more than these by far
And I put all my gifts on my fav'rite credit card

Visa's preferred

I think it's time I hit the mall again
A book for Uncle Stan, some new P.J.s for Jen
I'm really flyin' can't resist a deal
Look, here's some trendy socks, they're two-for-one, it's a steal

Visa's preferred

(Visa's preferred; use Amex? That's absurd!)
For baked goods and dry cleaning
Visa's divine at the place I buy lotion
Visa's the card most appealing

I bought a thresher with it on Ebay
My brother doesn't farm; he'll love it anyway
I haven't found a gift for Mom so far
I've started thinking now I'll have to charge her a car

Visa's preferred

(Visa's preferred when I'm buying cheese curd)
Giving dairy has meaning
Visa for CDs of "The Locomotion"
Visa for that new diamond ring

Visa creates an illusion
My wealth is endless; just bought cold fusion
For my Gramma so dear!

And all the other cards I've thrown away
'Cause in reality there's only one way to pay
Sister loves peanut butter, bought her ten jars
And where we wanna be, thanks to Visa's where we are

Visa's preferred

(Visa's preferred, bought my cousin a bird)
And pants that are self-steaming
Visa's so fine, when to spend is my notion
Visa patched my leaky ceiling

Visa's preferred, my addiction's uncured
It funds my Drama Queening
Visa is mine through my boyfriend's devotion
Visa's borrowed, that's not stealing!

Visa's preferred
It's preferred
It's preferred
It's preferred
It's preferred
It's preferred
It's preferred
It's preferred
It's preferred
It's preferred
It's preferred

Ah, where would I be without my Visa card? A great take on one of life's essentials :-) 5's

I wanted to give you 3 electronic fives, but you don't take American Express...? ;-)
Arwen - December 05, 2004 - Report this comment
Johnny...hee hee hee! Thanks!

Adam...I have to agree...I'd be lost without it! Thanks!

Merry...I did a stint with American Express...I didn't like it so much. But I'll certainly take yours if you want to give it to me...; )

The title itself is a 5, and the entire song is soooo worthy...unlike me...*grovel*

Oh stop it, Emi! LOL! Thanks a bunch!

Arwen - Well, I'm glad SOMEBODY likes Holiday shopping because I LOATHE it...And I had a miserable day at every place I went and I wasn't even doing any Holiday shopping...but, on the bright side, I'm going to be getting at least two parodies out of it (I think, haven't actually written them yet). I'll save the details for the parodies and their pre-comments...OH...say...I only use American Express...can I give you three 5's and charge it to that?
Arwen - December 05, 2004 - Report this comment
I suppose so, Paul...but just this once! ; ) Thanks!
Tim Mayfield - December 05, 2004 - Report this comment
Definitely classic plastic! I'll have to give credit where credits due. Just don't report these 5's stolen!!!
Arwen - December 06, 2004 - Report this comment
LOL, Tim!! Excellent comment! =) Thanks!!

Outstanding! LOVED "I bought a thresher with it on Ebay My brother doesn't farm; he'll love it anyway," but WTF "self-steaming" pants? - aren't all pants? - 555 - senSAY-tional

Well done...say la Visa!
Arwen - December 06, 2004 - Report this comment
Thanks, Stu...that was my favorite line, too!! Only really cool people have self steaming pants...you must be the cream of the crop!

Jeff...thanks! LOL...=)

It's like the mother ship is calling me home! I love love love this, and I apologize for my tardiness. I also giggled at Stu's and Jeff's comments! Extremely well done!
Arwen - December 07, 2004 - Report this comment
Thanks, Ash...no apology needed...I knew you'd get here sooner or later...=)

Oh...and I see I got some 1s for Christmas! Well, thanks a bunch, Secret Santa!!

Damn you, Secret Santa, for making me laugh!
Ashkicksass - December 07, 2004 - Report this comment
I meant to come back on earlier and tell you that I was Secret Santa, but I forgot! I didn't give you ones though. I'm pretty sure that was Stuart McArthur.
Arwen - December 08, 2004 - Report this comment
LOL! I thought it must have been you or Leo. But you're right about Stuart. He's totally the most likely to've given me the ones. The old "pick on the girl you have a crush on" bit. Typical.
Stuart McArthur - December 08, 2004 - Report this comment
LOL!! Even though I'm outraged, that was SO funny, Ash....right,(angry again) you win this little battle, my friend, but I have my tacticians working on a counter-offensive as I write...

Arwen, there's NO WAY you could have known about all those heart-shaped photos of you that I pasted onto the back pages of my secret Love-Scrapbook - have you been going thru my things again??

I was going to read this one the other day...but I got interrupted. Anyway, I liked this one as well; it's worthy of a triple-five electronic vote. Keep up the good work! :) =)

Thanks a bunch, Serafina!

...um... trying to think of a witty pun... um... "I have to give credit where...".(no, that's been done...) um... "this gave me such a good laugh that I'm forever in your..." (God, no -- that's stupid...) um... aw, nevermind -- guess I'm bankrupt of ideas, so I'll just say...

BRILLIANT!

See, Leo...just having you visit is thrilling enough...=) Thanks, sweetheart!

Parody preferred in the special X-mas song contest so far and considering I just suggested cancelling the whole thing it seemed only fair to come here and check it out. Definitely deserved the votes it gotten so far. As for the 1s my guess is Silver Power gave them out of bad habit. Check the the voting thread for further info.

(ABCV) I would say priceless but that is a MasterCard slogan. Besides, you could charge the comment to your Visa anyway. The cold fusion line was the best among many great lines.

(ABC) A little gem from Arwen's vault. I can't believe I never commented on this...I KNOW I've read it before. Oh well...problem rectified. BRAVO! 555

(ABC-V) hmm, what memories revisiting this thread! - I still love this one Arwen - I've already pinched all my favourite bits I see, so I'll go down to my 4th favourite bit which is the peanut butter jars line for a mention - and the title sub is one of the best yet
