A boat dealer's Christmas carol....


A boat dealer’s Christmas carol
(Sing to the tune of “Twelve Days of Christmas”)

On the first day of Christmas, my builder gave to me,
A Dealer Agreement that is fair; 

On the second day of Christmas my banker gave to me,
Floorplan relief . . . and

On the third day of Christmas my suppliers gave to me,
Real boat show help

On the fourth day of Christmas my builder gave to me,
Street labor rates

On the fifth day of Christmas my builder gave to me,
A full fiscal report

On the sixth day of Christmas my builder gave to me,
Area I can count on

On the seventh day of Christmas my builder gave to me,
A true buy-back deal

On the eighth day of Christmas my builder gave to me,
Full retail on parts

On the ninth day of Christmas my builder gave to me,
Just boats we ordered

On the tenth day of Christmas my government gave to me,
Regs that make sense

On the eleventh day of Christmas I agreed to this,
Support my MTA

On the twelfth day of Christmas my customers gave to me,
A whole lot of orders
