A Toast!

Everyone

Now who’d have thought he could make us laugh? He only does things on his own behalf,  We wish him well on his lonely path, A toast to Ebenezer Scrooge!

Now who’d have thought he could cause such mirth  Of all the creatures crawling on the earth, We wish him well and for what it’s worth, A toast to Ebenezer Scrooge!

Choir

Spirit, it’s all too clear, Look how they mock and jeer. How have I come to this? Have I been so remiss? I’ll make a brand-new start, I’ll give with all my heart Everything that I am, I’ll be a better man.

Everyone

Dead and Gone

Can’t take it with you, that’s what they say, Then when you go it gets taken away, Nobody knows where this stuff should belong, So stealing from the dead and gone don’t seem very wrong.

 He was a miser, a frugal recluse, Most of his things have had far too much use, Worn-out belongings, a fitting swansong, So stealing from the dead and gone don’t seem very wrong.

CHORUS

Vultures we are who will pick his bones clean, Specially as he was so callous and mean, When you have nothing to make a few bob, It’s a legitimate job… sort of!

Bedclothes and curtains, trousers and shoes, Gather it up, he’s got nothing to lose, He’s far more use to us now that he’s gone, So stealing from the dead and gone don’t seem very wrong.

CHORUS 

Vultures we are who will pick his bones clean, Specially as he was so callous and mean, When you have nothing to make a few bob, It’s a legitimate job… sort of!

Now the old skinfl int’s faded away, All that is left is a smell of decay. No one will miss the old goat who’s passed on, So stealing from the dead and gone don’t seem so very wrong.

Greetings of the season, Dinner for the hungry, presents for the poor, Greetings of the season, Everyone is welcome through an open door, All the grace and goodness abound As the carol singers make joyful sound And the Christmas spirit is found.

Greetings of the season, Welcome to the banquet we all love the best, Greetings of the season, Ebenezer Scrooge, our very special guest, It’s a most enjoyable time, It’s a chance for everyone’s love to shine, Raise a glass to Scrooge as we dine.

Everything will be brand new, (clap, clap) Even Ebenezer Scrooge, (clap, clap) Looking to the past and to the future Surely changed his point of view.

Christmas Day is here and now, (clap, clap) Ebenezer made a vow, (clap, clap) Never disregard the joy of Christmas, Be a better man somehow.

Bah Humbug

Bah Humbug

Bah humbug is a phrase we’ll use, Another name for Mister Scrooge, If he found out he’d blow a fuse At Christmas.

Choir - Ebenezer, what a grumpy geezer, Got no heart, he keeps it in a freezer.

 Bah humbug never gives a gift, His sense of gloom is hard to lift, His grumpy mood will never shift At Christmas.

Choir - Ebenezer, what a grumpy geezer, Got no heart, he keeps it in a freezer

CHORUS

 Bah humbug, Bah humbug, Bah humbug, Bah humbug, Over and again he says Bah humbug, Bah humbug, Bah humbug, Bah humbug, Always the same refrain.

 Bah humbug lacks a Yuletide grin, He can’t wait for the end to begin, His tolerance has worn quite thin At Christmas.

 Choir - Ebenezer, what a grumpy geezer, Got no heart, he keeps it in a freezer

Bah humbug never celebrates, He sees no import in the date, If there’s a party he’ll be late At Christmas.

 Choir - Ebenezer, what a grumpy geezer, Got no heart, he keeps it in a freezer

CHORUS

Bah humbug, Bah humbug, Bah humbug, Bah humbug, Over and again he says Bah humbug, Bah humbug, Bah humbug, Bah humbug, Always the same refrain

Bah humbug doesn’t see the fun In giving things to everyone, He wants it all over and done, His misery is next to none, The misanthropic number one, Thank Scrooge for keeping it glum. He says…

CHORUS

Bah humbug, Bah humbug, Bah humbug, Bah humbug, Over and again he says Bah humbug, Bah humbug, Bah humbug, Bah humbug, Always the same refrain

Fezziwig's Shindig

A kinder man you’ll never see, A boss to you, a friend to me, The leader of the company, A jolly laugh, a smile that’s filled with glee, We’ll dance a jig at Fezziwig’s shindig.

2 To mark another end of year And fill us with the Christmas cheer, He throws a do that we revere To summon up the festive atmosphere, We’ll dance a jig at Fezziwig’s shindig.

CHORUS

It hasn’t gone unnoticed that Belle and Mr Scrooge Have been exchanging glances, It hasn’t gone unnoticed that romance can begin At Mr Fezziwig’s Christmas dances.

We toil and labour come what may, Earn every penny of our pay, At Christmas time we hear him say, (Spoken by Fezziwig) ‘Let’s celebrate the glory of the day!’ We’ll dance a jig at Fezziwig’s shindig.

A better man you couldn’t fi nd Than Fezziwig at Christmas time, And so we all will be inclined To party like it’s 1899, We’ll dance a jig at Fezziwig’s shindig.

CHORUS

It hasn’t gone unnoticed that Belle and Mr Scrooge Have been exchanging glances, It hasn’t gone unnoticed that romance can begin At Mr Fezziwig’s Christmas dances

 We toil and labour come what may, Earn every penny of our pay, At Christmas time we hear him say, (Spoken by Fezziwig) ‘Come everybody, dance without delay!’ We’ll dance a jig at Fezziwig’s shindig.

 A better man you couldn’t find Than Fezziwig at Christmas time, And so we all will be inclined To party like it’s 1899, We’ll dance a jig at Fezziwig’s shindig. Fezziwig’s shindig
