When Love Is Gone (End Credits)


Scrooge
Townsfolk

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
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 being mean
The winner would be him
Old Scrooge, he loves his money
'Cause he thinks it give 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 changes folks a fortune for his dark and drafty houses
Us 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
Naw
Unh-unh!

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 meeces

There goes Mr. Heartless
There goes Mr. Cruel
He never gives, he only takes
He lets his hunger rule
If being 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



One More Sleep Till Christmas
Kermit

There's magic in the air this evening
Magic in the air
The world is at her best you know
When people love and care
The promise of excitement is one the night will keep
After all, there's only one more sleep 'til Christmas

The world has got a smile today
The world has got a glow
There's no such thing as strangers
When a stranger says hello
And everyone is family we're having so much fun
After all there's only one more sleep 'til Christmas

'Tis the season to be jolly and joyous
With a burst of pleasure we feel it arrive
It's the season when the Saints can employ us
To spread the news about peace and to keep love alive

There's something in the wind today
That's good for everyone
Yes, faith is in our hearts today
We're shinin' like the sun
And everyone can feel it, the feelin's runnin' deep
After all there's only one more sleep 'til Christmas
After all there's only one more sleep 'til Christmas
Day



Marley And Marley
Statler & Waldorf

We're Marley and Marley
Avarice and greed
We took advantage of the poor
And 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!
Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha

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
Ohhhhhhhhhhh!
We're Marley and Marley
Ohhhhhhhhhhh!

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

We're Marley and Marley
Ohhhhhhhhhhh!
We're Marley and Marley
Ohhhhhhhhhhh!
We're Marley and Marley
Ohhhhhhhhhhh!
Change!



When Love Is Gone
Belle

There was a time when I was sure
That you and I were truly one
That our future was forever
And would never come undone
And we came so close to being close
And though you cared for me
There's distance in your eyes tonight
So we're not meant to be

The love is gone
The love is gone
The sweetest dream
that you have ever known
The love is gone
The love is gone
I wish you well
but I must leave you now
alone

There comes a moment in your life
Like a window 
And you see
Your future there before you
And how perfect life can be
But adventure calls with unknown voices
Pulling you away
Be careful or you may regret
The choice you make someday

When love is gone
When love is gone
The sweetest dream
that we have ever known
When love is gone
When love is gone
I wish you well
But I must leave you now
alone

Belle & Scrooge
It was almost love
It was almost always
It was like a fairy tale
We'd live out, you and I
And yes, some dreams come true
And yes, some dreams fall through

Belle
And yes, the time has come
for us to say good-bye
Yes, some dreams come true
And yes, some dreams fall through
And yes, the time has come
for us to say good-bye

Scrooge
Life is like a journey
Who knows when it ends
Yes, and if you need to know
The measure of a man
You simply count his friends

Stop and look around you
The glory that you see
Is born again each day
don't let it slip away
How precious life can be

With a thankful heart
That is wide awake
I do make this promise
Every breath I take
Will be used now to sing your praise

Townsfolk
Used now to sing your praise

Scrooge
And to beg you to share my days

So we're never quite alone

When Love Is Gone (End Credits)
Martina McBride

There comes a moment in your life
Like a window 
And you see 
Your future there before you
And how perfect life can be
But adventure calls with unknown voices
Pulling you away
Be careful or you may regret
The choice you make someday

When love is gone
When love is gone
The sweetest dream
that we have ever known

When love is gone
When love is gone
I wish you well
But I must leave you now
alone

It was almost love
It was almost always
It was like a fairy tale
We'd live out, you and I

And yes, some dreams come true
And yes, some dreams fall through
And yes, the time has come
for us to say good-bye

Yes, some dreams come true
Yes, some dreams fall through
Yes, the time has come
for us to say good-bye
