Scrooge

Winter doesn’t officially start for a couple more weeks, but it definitely has felt like Winter in Wisconsin lately. πŸ₯Ά

Christmas carols are a great way to distract oneself from the cold. 😜

Christmas is getting closer and closer, and I really need to start watching my favorite Christmas films and shows before Christmas arrives! πŸŽ…One of my favorite Christmas movies is actually the 1992 film The Muppet Christmas Carol! πŸ˜‚

I remember my mother taking me to the cinema to see it when it came out, and I remember getting a sore neck from the movie because I had wanted to sit in the front row. 😁

I love the movie to this day because the Muppets are so adorable and make me laugh, and Michael Caine is fantastic as Scrooge!

A song in the film that I really like is “Scrooge.”

Lyrics:

When a cold wind 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 (yeah)
Unkind as any
And the wrath of many
This is Ebenezer Scrooge
Oh, there goes Mr. Humbug
There goes Mr. Grim
If they gave a prize for bein’ mean
The winner would be him
Old Scroogey loves his money
‘Cause he thinks it gives him power
If he became a flavor you can bet he would be sour
There goes Mr. Skinflint
There goes Mr. Greed
The undisputed master of
The underhanded deed
He charges folks a fortune
For his dark and drafty houses
As poor folk live in misery
It’s even worse for mouses
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 of pride
Look close and there must be
A sweet man inside–Naaaah!
There goes Mr. Outrage
There goes Mr. 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 need
No cheeses for us meeses
There goes Mr. Heartless
There goes Mr. Cruel
He never gives
He only takes
He lets his hunger rule
If bein’ mean’s a way of life you
Practice and rehearse
Then all that work is paying off
‘Cause Scrooge is getting worse
Every day
In every way
Scrooge is getting worse

When I was a kid, I remember this song scaring me. πŸ˜‚ However, now I think it’s so silly, and I laugh when I watch this video. πŸ˜€ What do you think of it?

I hope the song put a smile on your face. 😊

Wishing you well! β™₯
