Scrooge (Mr. Magoo) tearfully sings the song's reprise at the end of the future sequence.
Date: 1962

"Alone in the World" is a song featured in Mister Magoo's Christmas Carol. The song is first sung by the young Ebenezer Scrooge, left behind in boarding school after all the other children have gone home for Christmas. As he sings this song about his crushing loneliness, his future adult counterpart (played by Mr. Magoo) eventually sings the song in unison with him. Later in the special, Magoo/Scrooge sings a short reprise the after the Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come abandons him in the cemetery.

Adult Scrooge:

Oh, poor lonely child

Poor lonely child


Young Scrooge:

When you’re alone

Alone in the world

When you’re alone in the world

Blown the way leaves

Get blown in the world

Swirled the way leaves

Get swirled

Listening to your heels

When you walk

Making a lonely clack

You don’t know how it feels

When you talk

And nobody’s voice talks back

A hand for each hand

Was planned for the world

Why don’t my fingers reach?

A million grains of sand in the world

Why such a lonely beach

Where is a voice

To answer mine back

Where are 2 shoes

That click to my clack

I’m all alone

In the world

Where is a voice

To answer mine back

Where are 2 shoes
