Saw this movie on tv tonight, the song amused me. So I decided to hunt down the lyrics to share with you all. I also found the song clip from the movie to share.
Humbug! Poppycock! Balderdash! Bah!
Scavengers and sycophants and flatterers and fools,
Pharisees and parasites and hypocrites and ghouls,
Calculating swindlers, prevaricating frauds
Perpetrating evil as they roam the Earth in hordes.
Feeding on their fellow men,
Reaping rich rewards.
Contaminating everything they see.
Corrupting honest men like me.
People are despicable creatures,
Loathesome inexplicable creatures,
Good-for-nothing kickable creatures.
I hate people! I abhor them!
When I see the indolent classes
Sitting on their indolent asses,
Gulping ale from indolent glasses,
I hate people! I detest them!
I deplore them!
I hate people! I loathe people!
I despise and abominate people!
Life is full of cretinous wretches
Earning what their sweatiness fetches,
Empty minds whose pettiness stretches
Further than I can see.
Little wonder I hate people.
And I don't care if they hate me!
"I Hate People" from Scrooge, Leslie Bricusse
