"Thank You Very Much" is a song from Scrooge.

In the Christmas Yet To Come sequence, Scrooge hears a crowd singing it, with the bouncy tune causing him not to realize they are celebrating the occasion of his death. Scrooge thinks instead from misheard talk that this song is in jaunty tribute to him, instead of release from the debts owed to him (or in some versions, at least the transfer of these debts to a less odious lender). At the end, after his reform, the same man who would have begun the song in mockery of him instead leads it in true tribute to the now-generous Scrooge. This song is also used in stage versions of A Christmas Carol musicals, and commercials for Simon Gift Cards, among others. It was also reused in the CGI movie Scrooge: A Christmas Carol.

Lyrics[]

On behalf of all the people who have assembled here
I would merely like to mention, if I may
That our unanimous attitude
Is one of lasting gratitude
For what our friend has done for us today
And therefore I would simply like to say :
Thank you very much
Thank you very much
That's the nicest thing that anyone's ever done for me
I may sound double Dutch
But my delight is such
I feel as if a losing war's been won for me
And if I had a flag, I'd hang me flag out
To let us all the final victory touch
But since I left me flag at home I simply have to say :
Thank you very, very, very much
Thank you very, very, very much
Thank you very much
Thank you very much
That's the nicest thing that anyone's ever done for me
It sounds a bit bizarre
The things the way they are I feel as if another life's begun for me
And if I had a cannon I would fire it
To let us all see the grace of touch
But since I left me cannon at home I simply have to say :
Thank you very, very, very much
Thank you very, very, very much
For he's a jolly good fellow
For he's a jolly good fellow
For he's a jolly good fellow
And so say all of us
Thank you very much
Thank you very much
That's the nicest thing that anyone's ever done for me
It isn't every day
Good fortune comes me way
I never thought the future would be fun for me
And if I had a bugle I would blow it
To add a sort o' how's your father's touch
But since I left me bugle at home I simply have to say :
Thank you very, very, very much
Thank you very, very, very much

Scrooge: No, no, dear friends, it is I who should thank you!
Thank you very much
Thank you very much
That's the nicest thing that anyone's ever done for me
The future looks alright
In fact it looks so bright
I feel as if they're polishing the sun for me

Chorus: And if I had a drum, I'd have to bang it
To add a sort o' rumpty tumpty touch
But since I left me drummer at home
I simply have to say :
Thank you very, very, very much
Thank you very, very, very much
