"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.

Lyrics

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

Adult Scrooge: A hand for each hand
Both: Was planned for the world
Why don’t my fingers reach?
A million grains of sand in the world
Why such a lonely beach
Adult Scrooge: Where is a voice
To answer mine back
Young Scrooge: Where are 2 shoes
That click to my clack
Both: I’m all alone
In the world

Reprise

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
