What a chilly evening! London's all aglow! Merry Christmas, Dearie! Don't it feel like it might snow!
Chilly evenin'! All aglow! 'Cause it's Christmas! And it might snow!
(CUT TO THE CRATCHITS)
I don't need a fortune hidden in a shoe.
Many men have fortunes but they don't have you.
When I look at you I'm richer than a king.
Yes, you mean more to me than anything.
(WALKING TO THE TOWN)
We shall buy some apples.
Mum 'll love them so!
Father, look! The theatre!
When we're rich, we'll go!
All the joy's of Christmas bundled up with string,
but you mean more to me,
you mean more to me,
yes you mean more to me than anything.
I don't need a feast, Dad,
all I'd get is fat.
I don't need a turkey.
How'd I eat all that?
I shall be content no matter what you bring...
You mean more to me...
You mean more to me...
You mean more to me than anything!
Come to Christmas dinner.
We're inviting you.
Be with fam'ly Uncle, just this once.
You'd enjoy it, Uncle.
We'd enjoy it, too.
You'd meet Sally, Uncle, just this once.
People taking wives,
living little lives,
cozier than mice!
Marrying for love!
Push will come to shove!
You'll be thinking twice!
Asking me to dine,
breaking open wine,
taking no advice!
Well, you can have Christmas, and marriage as well,
and to hell with your trees and your rice!
I will not fill my plate,
socialize or celebrate
with a fool and his family.
Let your love see you through, but have nothing to do with me!
Hear the bells all over London town.
How joyously they ring.
See the lamps aglow in...
(Scrooge is aggravated and get's kicked. Child escapes)
Hay, have you forgotten how to smile, Sir?
Come and buy a ticket to the show.
Life'll pass you by in just a while, Sir,
and it may be later than you know!
Would you kindly help us reach the light, Sir?
Otherwise I'm sure to get the sack!
Oughta take the time for doing right, Sir!
You'll be sorry, Sir, when you look back!
Spare a coin for someone who is blind, Sir?
None so blind as those who will not see!
Go your sorry way and never mind, Sir!
Come the future, you'll remember me!
Let the stars in the sky remind us of man's compassion.
Let us love 'till we die and god bless us everyone.
Such a merry season!
Don't 'cha love it so?
Ain't this Christmas cheery,
Merry Christmas, Dearie!
Damn this silly season!
Damn all human kind!
Makes you lose your reason!
Makes you lose your mind!
Next thing you know, I'll be dancing in snow,
throwing coins to the poor & the lame & the blind!
Well, I wish that the whole world would just let me be!
Let the whole be damned!
It has nothing to do with me!
