Happy Christmas (Your Career Is Over)

As firms restructure, review and lay-off, Here Is The City has dusted off this old chesnut.

The following expresses our feelings about firms who let their staff go close to Xmas, and should be sung to the tune of John Lennon's Happy Christmas (War Is Over):


So this is Christmas,
Your job is done

Your work with us is over,
Perhaps another career begun

And so this is Christmas
We really wish you well

But your job is redundant
We're sorry to tell

A very Merry Christmas
And a Happy New Year

Let's hope it's a good one
Without any fear

And a very Merry Christmas
For those facing the sack

This time is a sad one
As you're not coming back

And a very Merry Christmas
We're sorry to say

The job axe is falling
And you're not going to stay

And so Happy Christmas
I hope you have fun

We're sorry you're leaving
When all's said and done

It's hard for us to do this,
But we've had our review

The choice was a hard one,
But we're getting rid of you.

Happy Christmas (Your Career Is Over)
