by Jeff Goode & Jonathan Price

from Marley's Christmas

Marley's former business associates mourn his untimely loss with all the remorse of children frolicking in a school yard.

  • Lyrics:
He's a money-grubbing miser with a heart as black as coal.
He's a misanthropic tosser with a cashbox for a soul.

He's as kindly as a gargoyle with a visage half as sweet.
But I've heard he's fond of orphans.
                                                            (Yes, he thinks they're good to eat!)

Six pence two. The rent's past due.
Someone's creepin' round the corner. Marley's coming after you!
