The Lyrics

Some stories are so indelibly etched into the popular consciousness, you don't question the exact ways that it's shaped our language...
So nuts

"Scrooge" is shorthand for a real stingy guy
One to never wish well, you'd rather he die, oh-oh-ooh
Never smilin' (their mood's always hell, boy)
Always gripin' (their heart's a stony flint, oh)
But I'm a little bit confused 'cause he became a chill dude
How can that be true?

He's still "Humbug (gruff), humbug (humbug)"
Still "Humbug (gruff)", oh yeah-ee (humbug)
Scrooge is only "Humbug (gruff), humbug (humbug)"
He's still "Humbug (gruff)", oh yeah-ee (humbug)

Humbug, no way
Humbug, somethin's up

You've seen it homaged a thousand-odd ways, ah
Sometimes bad, often good, it's burned in all of our brains, oh yeah-eah
You can't deny it (you know the famous lines, boy)
So since this is true (know it beat for beat, oh)
Why is anybody rude in December called a "Scrooge"? Ah

He's still "Humbug (gruff), humbug (humbug)"
He's still "Humbug (gruff)", oh yeah-ee (humbug)
That Scrooge is only "Humbug (gruff), humbug (humbug)"
He's still "Humbug (gruff)", oh yeah-ee (humbug)
Scrooge is only "Humbug (gruff), humbug (humbug)"
He's still "Humbug (gruff)", oh yeah-ee (humbug)
Scrooge is only "Humbug (gruff), humbug (humbug)"
He's still "Humbug (gruff)", oh yeah-eah-ee-yeah-eah (humbug)

Though he changed (although he changed)
Insult's the same (it's still the same)
Don't like Christmas in your face (right in your face)?
Know what folks say, yeah-eah

He's still "Humbug (gruff), humbug (humbug)"
He's still "Humbug (gruff)", oh yeah-ee (humbug)
Scrooge is only "Humbug (gruff), just humbug (humbug)"
He's still "Humbug (gruff)", yeah-ee (humbug)
He's still "Humbug (gruff)", oh-oh yeah (humbug)
Still "Humbug (gruff humbug)"
Oh, so damn confused (gruff humbug)
I'm so damn confused (gruff), eh-eh (humbug)
Seems so crazy (humbug)
Not a pertinent problem, true (gruff)
Who cares but me? Few (humbug)
Not sure that I care that much, dude (gruff)
But my brain is still stuck, it's true

My thoughts get crazy
Don't know what to do, maybe
Should write it off as humbug
Write the thing off as humbug
Just write it off as humbug
But I can't stop, bah, humbug

Words I never thought I'd get to use in a parody: pertinent. Words I didn't think I'd have to add to Chrome's dictionary: homaged.
