The Lyrics

I am currently playing the part of Jacob Marley in Charles Dickens' "Christmas Carol" at Theatre III in Acton, Massachusetts ( Click here to see me in-character ). The scene in "Christmas Carol" where a group of old hags gather to sell stuff they stole from Scrooge's death-bed is often referred-to as "The Hag Scene". Paula, who is playing "Mrs. Dilber" (one of those hags), asked me to write this parody so the four of us --- the 3 hags plus yours truly, "Jacob Marley" --- can perform it at a cast party. Paula, this is for you!
I was lurking in the dark late one night
When my eyes beheld an eerie sight
From that Ebenezer Scrooge's death-bedside
Came suddenly, to my surprise

(THOSE UGLY HAGS!)
Those ugly monster-hags!
(THE MONSTER HAGS!)
Clutching their filthy bags!
(THOSE UGLY HAGS!)
I heard them cackle and brag!
(THOSE UGLY HAGS!)
Those ugly monster-hags!

From the purgatory in which I was chained
I observed the nerve with which they obtained
Spoons, towels, bed sheets, curtains galore,
Sugar-tongs, bric-a-brac, blankets, and more!

(THOSE UGLY HAGS!)
Those ugly monster-hags!
(THE MONSTER HAGS!)
Clutching their filthy bags!
(THOSE UGLY HAGS!)
Wearing their flea-bitten rags!
(THOSE UGLY HAGS!)
Those ugly monster-hags!

When Scrooge departed this life,
THEY stripped his clothes with a knife!
Char-woman, Laundress, and the,
Under-taker's own wife!

The scene was sleazy, all were showing their junk
To the fence Old Joe, who stunk worse than a skunk
"Five bob, the lot," said Old Joe with a sneer,
"Oy would not pays y'more if y'boiled me in beer!"

(THOSE UGLY HAGS!)
Those ugly monster-hags!
(THE MONSTER HAGS!)
Clutching their filthy bags!
(THOSE UGLY HAGS!)
Smell how they stink and you'll gag!
(THOSE UGLY HAGS!)
Those ugly monster-hags!

Then Scrooge's corpse cried out, "Indeed ---
--- those ugly hags know the meaning of greed!
If it's my fate, to be grave-robbed,
I'm glad it 'twas you --- you've done such a great job!"

(THOSE UGLY HAGS!)
Those ugly monster-hags!
(THE MONSTER HAGS!)
Clutching their filthy bags!
(THOSE UGLY HAGS!)
You'll hear them cackle and brag!
(THOSE UGLY HAGS!)
Those ugly monster-hags!

Now everything's cool, Scrooge is dead as a nail
And the monster-hags put his rubbish on sale
They made their fortune --- now they're misers, too!
When they get to MY door, they'll get chains and we'll do ---

(WE'LL DO THE MASH!)
We'll do The Marley Mash!
(THE MARLEY MASH!)
If you're a piece of trash
(A PIECE OF TRASH!)
And you love only cash
(YOU'LL DO THE MASH!)
You'll do The Marley Mash!

(YOU'LL DO THE MASH!)
You'll do The Marley Mash!
(THE MARLEY MASH!)
If you're a piece of trash
(A PIECE OF TRASH!)
And you love only cash
(YOU'LL DO THE MASH!)
You'll do The Marley Mash!
