Oh Christmas Tree

Oh Christ­mas tree, Oh Christ­mas tree
With piles of gifts we love to see
Beneath the branch­es they’re displayed
I hope that they are all Fair Trade!
Don’t buy those games and ted­dy bears
Unless the Fair Trade label’s there
Go tell your friends and family
To shop in solidarity.

Oh Christ­mas tree with gifts so grand
Weare any made by chil­dren’s hands?
A Christ­mas bar­gain’s not so nice
If sweat­shop work­ers paid the price
Con­sumers, let’s all use our clout
It’s time to get the mes­sage out
The great­est gift beneath the tree
Is glob­al solidarity.
