Song Lyrics:
The pitches reach a fever pitch at Christmas
I shuffle through my mail with trembling hand
I read it all with shame
How do they get my name?
How can I ever answer each demand?

The pitches reach a fever pitch at Christmas
Those paper fingers clutching at my sleeve
They make their case so slickly
I should make a donation quickly
and I'll find if I give I'll soon receive

Another letter

Asking me for more

Celebrities are writing me in person
It's strange the letters sound so much the same
This makes it extra tough
No check is big enough
When somebody like Wilton gives his name

Now underlining really gets my back up
It makes me feel they think I can not read
I try to take it with a smile
It's the fundraiser style
It has nothing to do with the ones who are in need

Beneath the moon of wintertime
The homeless cry of lives a crime
Who feel despair
Who feel such pain
Who cant afford to mount a direct mail campaign
Your governments and corporations
Cutting back on their donations
You and I will have to pay
As posty brings a bigger pack of guilt each day

The pitches reach a fever pitch at Christmas
So Santa Claus can bring you your receipt
Still time to save a life or help a battered wife
Or engineer a government's defeat

They know our hearts are softened up at Christmas
so that's the time to mount the big attack
As the fundraisers foretold
We're glad our names are sold
To correspondence who always answer back

Dear Nancy
Thank you for your generous reply to our recent appeal.
It was courageous of you to send us so much less than the minimum suggested donation.
So few have the nerve
With your ten big dollars
We were able to buy enough stamps to write to twenty-seven more people
Four of those letters will be going to you so you can see you've made a good investment
Our organization needs a great deal of support from compassionate people like yourself
We would like you to consider simplifying your life by having a monthly donation deducted from
your paycheck
Now about your will
You do have a will don't you?
After all you might trip over a wino and snap your spinal cord tomorrow
and we are sure you wouldn't want your estate to be confiscated by the government
(Stavro Arrgolus)
