Information on the Rapper

Ebenezer Scrooge is the main character of the novel A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens. He was a rich, greedy man who only cared about making money through his business "Scrooge & Marley". One year on Christmas Eve, he was haunted by the ghost of his former partner, Jacob Marley, and the three ghosts of Christmas (Past, Present and Yet to Come). He then became a nice, warm-hearted good being as a result. The character has been played by many actors in over fifteen adaptions including Michael Caine, Jim Carrey, Patrick Stewart, George C. Scott, Alistair Sims, and Bill Murray, whose role as corrupted TV executive Frank Cross in "Scrooged" was a direct parody of the original. He was also played by Scrooge McDuck in the Disney version of A Christmas Carol, and his name is based on the character Ebenezer Scrooge.

Lyrics

Verse 1

How dare you disturb me when I'm napping in my chair!

You're a crappy rap-spitting apparition! I ain't scared

Of this random phantom. Haunt all you want! I don't care!

I do not believe in ghosts, and I don't believe that hair!

Verse 2

Bah humbug! Your raps don't unnerve me; they're atrocious!

What frightens me the most is your gross ghost proboscis!

Business and success: that's the life I've selected!

So enough with your pictures from the past, I'm not affected!

Verse 3

No! This isn't happening!

Oh, this is maddening agony! Wait! Actually,

Harkening back to the dead Donald's lecture,

I still am expecting a final specter!

Interlude

Ahhh!

Verse 4

Are these the shadows of things that will be? Or things that may be, only?

If I depart from my course, can they change? Say it is thus with what you show me!

I promise to mend my ways. A friend to all men is what I will become!

It's Christmas! I haven't missed my chance to be different, God bless us, every—
