SCROOGE (The Musical) (Leslie Bricusse) A CHRISTMAS CAROL Sing a song of gladness and cheer For the time of Christmas is here Look around about you and see What a world of wonder This world can be Sing a Christmas carol Sing a Christmas carol Sing a Christmas carol Like the children do And the joy and beauty Oh, the joy and beauty That a merry Christmas can bring to you! (Transcribed by Holly Tooker - December 2003) ***** I HATE PEOPLE Scavengers and sycophants and flatterers and fools Pharisees and parasites and hypocrites and ghouls Calculating swindlers, prevaricating frauds Perpetrating evil as they roam the earth in hordes Feeding on their fellow men Reaping rich rewards Contaminating everything they see Corrupting honest me like me Humbug! Poppycock! Balderdash! Bah! I hate people! I hate people! People are despicable creatures Loathesome inexplicable creatures Good-for-nothing kickable creatures I hate people! I abhor them! When I see the indolent classes Sitting on their indolent asses Gulping ale from indolent glasses I hate people! I detest them! I deplore them! Fools who have no money spend it Get in debt then try to end it Beg me on their knees befriend them Knowing I have cash to lend them Soft-hearted me! Hard-working me! Clean-living, thrifty and kind as can be! Situations like this are of interest to me I hate people! I loathe people! I despise and abominate people! Life is full of cretinous wretches Earning what their sweatiness fetches Empty minds whose pettiness stretches Further than I can see Little wonder I hate people And I don't care if they hate me! (Transcribed by Holly Tooker - December 2003) ***** NO BETTER LIFE (NOT AVAILABLE YET) ***** CHRISTMAS CHILDREN Christmas children peep into Christmas windows See a world as pretty as a dream Christmas trees and toys Christmas hopes and joys Christmas puddings rich with Christmas cream Christmas presents shine in the Christmas windows Christmas boxes tied with Christmas bows Wonder what's inside What delights they hide But till Christmas morning no one knows Won't it be exciting if it snows? I suppose that children everywhere Must say a Christmas prayer Till Santa brings their Christmas things Christmas children live in a Christmas daydream Waiting for the magic to unfold Wondrous things to eat Every Christmas treat Rich or not the Christmas pot of gold Hypnotizes children young and old Christmas children hunger for Christmas morning Christmas day's a wonder to behold Young ones' dreams come true Not so young ones, too I believe that story we've been told Christmas is for children young and old (Transcribed by Holly Tooker - December 2003) ***** FATHER CHRISTMAS From the movie "Scrooge" Father Christmas Father Christmas Heís the meanest man in the whole wide world In the whole wide world, you can feel it Heís a miser Heís a skinflint Heís a stingy lout Leave your stocking out For your Christmas gift and heíll steal it Itís a shame Heís a villain What a game For a villain to play on Christmas day Father Christmas Father Christmas Will be just as mean As heís ever been And Iím here to say We should all send Father Christmas On his merry Christmas way Father Christmas Father Christmas Heís the rottenest man in the universe And thereís no one worse, you can tell it Heís a rascal Heís a bandit Heís a crafty one Leave your door undone Heíll move in your house and sell it Itís a crime Itís a scandal What a game For a vandal to play on Christmas day If you distrust Father Christmas Itís as well to know That I told you so ĎCause Iím here to say We should all send Father Christmas Father Christmas, Father Christmas Father Christmas, Father Christmas On his merry Christmas way Reprise Father Christmas Father Christmas Heís the greatest man in the whole wide world In the whole wide world and he knows it Every Christmas Father Christmas Puts a great big sack On his dear old back ĎCause he loves us all And he shows it And he goes for a sleighride In the snow and he may ride all night And thatís all right In the morning Christmas morning If you lift your eyes Thereís a big surprise Underneath the tree Itís a gift from Father Christmas From Father Christmas Thatís how Christmas will appear (Transcribed by Holly Tooker - December 2003) ***** FATHER CHRISTMAS From the musical "Scrooge" (1992 Birmingham Cast) Sung by the Urchins: Simone Barnes, Ciaran Brennan, James Brown, Sharon Buchanan, Natalie Horton, John Wesley Lenegan, Paul Liburd, Kate perkins, Leonie Prentice, Ian Salter, Tom Stevens, Thomas Wilkins.
