Muppet Christmas Carol - Marley And Marley

"Marley and Marley" is sung by Jacob Marley and Robert Marley (ingrown by Statler and Waldorf) in The Muppet's Christmas Carol. Based upon the ghost of Jacob Marley, they acted as harbingers to Ebenezer Scrooge to prevent he ended like them.

Lyrics

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

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

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

CHANGE!

Muppet Christmas Carol OST,T6 Marley & Marley

Jacob Marley: It is required of every man that the spirit within him should walk abroad among his fellow men.

Robert Marley: And if that spirit goes not forth in life, he is condemned to do so after death.

Jacob Marley: To witness what he can not share, but might have shared and turned to happiness.

Both: We're Marley and Marley. Avarice and greed.

Jacob Marley: We took advantage of the poor. Just ignored the needy.

Both: We specialized in causing pain, spreading fear and doubt.

Robert Marley: And if you could not pay the rent, we simply threw you out.

There was the year we evicted the entire orphanage!

Jacob Marley: I remember the little tykes all standing in the snow bank.

Robert Marley: With their little frostbitten teddy bears!

Both: (laugh) (shudder)

Both: We're Marley and Marley. Our hearts were painted black.

Jacob Marley: We should have known our evil deeds would put us both in shackles

Both: Captive, bound, we're double-ironed, exhausted by the weight

Jacob Marley: As freedom comes from giving love

Robert Marley: So, prison comes with hate

Both: We're Marley and Marley

Ghosts: Whoooooo

Both: We're Marley and Marley

Ghosts: Whoooooo

Waldorf: True, there was something about mankind we loved

Jacob Marley: I think it was their money!

Both: (laugh)

Both: Doomed, Scrooge! You're doomed for all time!

Waldorf: Your future is a horror story, written by your crime

Both: Your chains are forged by what you say and do.

Ghosts: So, have your fun; when life is done, a nightmare waits for you.

Waldorf: Funny?

Jacob Marley: Money?

Both: We're Marley and Marley.

Ghosts: Whoooooo.

Both: We're Marley and Marley.
