I’ll Be Broke For Krismuss (tune of I’ll be Home for Christmas)

by Fayemarie Anderson Carter

I’ll be Broke for Christmas
Can’t afford a tree,
We’ll eat crow and my big toe,
‘Cause we depend on Dean.

Krismuss Eve will find me,
In a great quandary,
Pay the rent, it’s all been spent,
On doctor bills and school fees.

I’ll be Broke for Krismuss,
Can only afford some beans,
I’ll be broke for Krismuss,
It’s not the one I dreamed
