Lyrics

Ghost of Christmas Present: Ebenezer Scrooge
The sins of man are huge
A neverending symphony
Of villainy and infamy
Duplicity, deceit, and subtefuge
And no one's worse than Ebenezer Scrooge
Though man's a handy candidate for Hell
I must admit life sometimes has it's brighter side as well
I like life
Life likes me
Life and I fairly fully agree
Life is fine
Life is good
'Specially mine, which is just as it should be
I like pouring the wine and why not?
Life's a pleasure that I deny not
I like life
Here and now
Life and I made a mutual vow
'Till I die
Life and I
We'll both try to be better somehow
And if life were a woman
She would be my wife
Scrooge: Why?
Ghost of Christmas Present: Why?
Because I like life!
Scrooge: That's all very well for you
But I hate life
Ghost of Christmas Present: Nonsense man!
Why?
Scrooge: Because life hates me, that's why!
Ghost of Christmas Present: Oh, Scrooge, you're an even bigger fool than I took you for!
You've had over sixty years on this planet
And during your long, miserable, miserly, selfish existence
You haven't even learned how to live
Now listen to me
I like life
Well, go on...
Scrooge: I like life
Ghost of Christmas Present: That's better!
Life likes me
Scrooge: Life likes me
Ghost of Christmas Present: Good, good!
I make life a perpetual spree
Scrooge: A perpetual spree!
Ghost of Christmas Present: Eating food
Scrooge: Drinking wine
Ghost of Christmas Present: Thinking who'd like the privelege to dine me
Scrooge: I like drinking the drink I'm drinking
Ghost of Christmas Present: That's better, Scrooge!
And I like thinking the thoughts I'm thinking
I like songs
I like dance
I hear music and I'm in a trance
Scrooge: Tra-la-la!
Ghost of Christmas Present: Oom-pah-pah!
Both: Chances are we shall get up and prance
Ghost of Christmas Present: Where there's music and laughter
Happiness is rife
Scrooge: Why?
Ghost of Christmas Present: Why?
Because I like life!
Ghost of Christmas Present: and Scrooge: Where there's music and laughter
Happiness is rife
Why?
Because I like life!
Ghost of Christmas Present: Come on, Scrooge:, we're going visiting
You're in for a few surprises
Drinking life
That's the thing
Makes a man want to suddenly sing
Sing and dance
And perchance
Seeing life from a different stance
When you learn how to live it
Life is free of strife
That is why I like life!
That's the secret of living
Scrooge: Any man can fly!
Ghost of Christmas Present: Why?
Because I like life!
