"I Hate People" Scrooge The Musical

"I Hate People" is the second song from Scrooge. It is sung by Ebenezer Scrooge, as he is grumbling his way home, muttering about his hatred among people and their Christmas festivities.



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 men like me

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!
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!
