Lyrics[]

When a cold when blows it chills you
Chills you to the bone
But there's nothing in nature that freezes your heart
Like years of being alone

It paints you with indifference
Like a lady paints with rouge
And the worst of the worst
The most hated and cursed

Is the one that we call Scrooge
Unkind as any and
he wrath of many
This is Ebenezer Scrooge

There goes Mister Humbug
There goes Mister Grim
If they gave a prize for being mean
The winner would be him

Old Scrooge he loves his money
Cause he thinks it gives him power
Veg: If he became a flavour
You can bet he would be sour

[speech]
"Even the vegetables don't like him!"

There goes Mister Skinflint
There goes Mister Greed
The undisputed master of
The underhanded deed

He charges folks a fortune
For his dark and drafty houses
Us poor folk live in misery
It's even worse for mouses

[speech]
"Please, sir! I want some cheese."

He must be so lonely
He must be so sad
He goes to extremes
To convince us he's bad

He's really a victim
of fear and afraid
Look close and there be
a sweet man inside...
Naahhh!

There goes Mister Outrage
There goes Mister Sneer
He has no time for friends or fun
His anger makes that clear

Don't ask him for a favor
Cause his nastiness increases
No crust of bread for those in
No cheeses for us mices

There goes Mister Heartless
There goes Mister Cruel
He never gives he only takes
Lets his hunger rule

If being mean's a way of life
You'd practice and rehearse
Then all that work is paying off
'Cause Scrooge is getting worse

Everyday in every way
Scrooge is getting worse
