Money Montage / The Engagement Is Off lyrics

Money Montage / The Engagement Is Off

GHOST OF CHRISTMAS PAST
"Ah, Emily. The light of your life."

MRS. FEZZIWIG
Merry Christmas to all!

GHOST OF CHRISTMAS PAST
What a lovely night
Happiness and light
Emily was all you'd ever need.
But remember the way your life would lead.

SCROOGE
"My partnership with Jacob Marley."

YOUNG SCROOGE
What a good plan

YOUNG MARLEY
What an endeavor.

YOUNG SCROOGE AND YOUNG MARLEY
We'll have a business you and I.

YOUNG SCROOGE
Money will flow

YOUNG MARLEY
Money forever

YOUNG SCROOGE AND YOUNG MARLEY
Money in bundles ten feet high.

YOUNG SCROOGE
Never be poor
Living on credit.

YOUNG MARLEY
Let it be known what we are for.

YOUNG SCROOGE AND YOUNG MARLEY
Profit, yes!
And nothing less
When we put Scrooge and Marley on the door!

GHOST OF CHRISTMAS PAST
"Link by link,
Year by year,
Creditor after creditor,
Your partnership flourished
And your fortune grew!"

PERSON
I'd like to borrow ten, sir.
I'll pay you back again, sir."

GROUP 1
Here's half that I did borrow.
I'll bring the rest tomorrow.

GROUP 2
I need a bit of time, sir.
You know my credit's prime, sir.

MR. FEZZIWIG
I've fallen deep in debt, sir.
I swear I'll pay you yet, sir.
I helped you both get started.
What's made you so hardhearted?

GHOST OF CHRISTMAS PAST
Do not turn away.
Here's the price you pay.
Here's another shadow yet to see.
Come remember...

EMILY
You love
Nothing quite so much as gold,
Well I have some gold to bring
From days
Long before our dreams grew cold
I give you your ring

SCROOGE
"Emily, no..."

EMILY
Bless you, Ebenezer.

(Musical interlude.
Marley dies.)

SCROOGE
"Ah, yes. I remember.

(Musical interlude)

PEOPLE FROM SCROOGE'S PAST
Voices from the past
Calling you at last
Voices of the ones who loved you so
Come remember
The lights of long ago

SCROOGE
"No! No more!"

PEOPLE FROM SCROOGE PAST
Remember (Remember)
Remember (Remember)
Remember (Remember)
Remember (Remember)
Remember (Remember)
Remember (Remember)
Remember (Remember)
Remember (Remember)

GHOST OF CHRISTMAS PAST
"These are the shadows of the things that have been. They are what they are. Do not blame me.
They are what they are. Do not blame me......"
