The Lyrics

Seems nobody still believes
In the kind of life I lead
And so, it is better if I hide

So these days I float and rot
I proclaim if I was not
A ghost, I would die of boredom

I was a ghost
helping ebenezer's brain
I was a ghost
Helping ebenezer's brain
Understand he caused much pain

Hundred fifty Christmases
Passed since when I had convinced
That old, man that he could spare a dime

Lots of scrooges still around
If one heard me make a sound
He'd go somewhere that's not haunted

I was a ghost
helping ebenezer's brain
I was a ghost
Helping ebenezer's brain
But what use is that today?

(ghost noise)

I was a ghost
Helping Ebenezer's brain
I'm still a ghost
It hurts when I see kids pray
That I would just go away

You spelled Creedence wrong. But I'm not going to ding you for that, as the content of the parody was excellent. So I'm 555-ing it.
