spoken:
It is required of every man that the spirit within him
Should walk abroad among his fellow men
And if that spirit goes not forth in life,
He is condemned to do so after death
To witness what he cannot share
But might have shared and turned to happiness

We're Marley and Marley
Avarice and greed
We took advantage of the poor
Just ignored the needy
We specialized in causing pain
Spreading fear and doubt
And if you could not pay the rent
We simply threw you out

spoken:
There was the year we evicted the entire orphanage
I remember the little tykes all standing in the snowbank
With their little frostbitten teddy bears

We're Marley and Marley
Our hearts were painted black
We should have known our evil deeds
Would put us both in shackles
Captive
Bound
We're double-ironed
Exhausted by the weight
As freedom comes from giving love
So, prison comes with hate

We're Marley and Marley
Whoooooo
We're Marley and Marley
Whoooooo

spoken:
True, there was something about mankind we love
I think it was their money!

Doomed, Scrooge!
You're doomed for all time
Your future is a horror story
Written by your crime
Your chains are forged
By what you say and do
So, have your fun
When life is done
A nightmare waits for you

spoken:
Money!
Money!

We're Marley and Marley
Whoooooo
We're Marley and Marley
Whoooooo
We're Marley and Marley
Whoooooo
Change!
