New carol Can't Post

Dear all
"God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen" has been a popular carol since its origins in the 15th century. The words have often been adjusted, particularly in Victorian times, to poke a little fun at the landed gentry in good humour without malice or rudeness. Following in this tradition, I have put together "God Rest You Merry Bankers" for this season setting it to a relaxed blues beat. It would sound great with a full choir. Please offer feedback, use the new lyrics, copy, adapt, etc. however you wish. My rendition can be found at
All the best
