Link By Link Lyrics


by A Christmas Carol Cast. From Christmas Carol, A.


MARLEY’S GHOST
It is required of every man
That his spirit travel far,
Lending help to those he can
No matter who they are.
But if you don’t go forth in life,
Spreading joy and easing pain,
Your spirit will go forth in death,
And you shall wear a chain!

(Marley’s Ghost shows Scrooge the metal boxes and safes which weigh him down)

These were the coins I horded
For a rainy day.
Now, with every jingle,
I’m disgraced.
Locks and keys that helped me
Keep the poor away,
That’s what put these locks
And keys around my waist.

Link by link,
My chain was getting longer.
Link by link,
I should have heard it clink.
Link by link
Each year a little stronger!
Link by link by horrifying link!

Stacking up my silver
And my bits of gold,
Filling up my vault
When day was done.
Vaults are made of lead,
And cash is very cold!
And around your neck,
They weigh a bloody ton!

Link by link,
You’re on the brink
It’s written here
In blood red ink.
Unlock your heart
It’s not too late!
Or you’ll be dragging something
More than twice this weight …

SCROOGE
“No, please!”

MARLEY’S GHOST
Ebenezer Scrooge?

SCROOGE
“Y…y…yes?”

MARLEY’S GHOST
You shall be visited by three ghosts.

SCROOGE
“Ummm… No, thank you!”

MARLEY’S GHOST
When the clock strikes one,
The Ghost of Christmas Past.

SCROOGE
“I prefer not to think about the past.”

MARLEY’S GHOST
When the clock strikes two,
The Ghost of Christmas Present.

SCROOGE
“At present, I’d rather go to bed! Good night!”

MARLEY’S GHOST
When the clock strikes three,
The Ghost of Christmas Yet to Be!
Three ghosts who may yet stop you
Ending up like me…

(Other eerie Ghosts materialize in the room.)

GHOSTS, MARLEY’S GHOST
See the sorry spirits
Who were once like you,
Dragging chains
Of all that we acquired
All the good in life
It’s now too late to do

HEADLESS GHOST
Not to mention
This can really make you tired!

GHOSTS
Link by link,

MARLEY’S GHOST
Your chain is in the making!

GHOSTS
Link by link,

MARLEY’S GHOST
No way to make it shrink!

GHOSTS
Link by link,
Just listen to it shaking!
Ah ah oo oo!
Oo oo-ee-ee!
Ah ah oo oo!
Oo oo-ee-ee!

Link by link by horrifying—

(The Ghosts surround Scrooge in a macabre dance.)

MARLEY’S GHOST, GHOSTS
Link by link by …
Link by link by …
Link by link by …

MARLEY’S GHOST, GHOSTS
Link by link,
Your life must be corrected!
Link by link,
And sooner thank you think.
Link by link,
Or you shall be connected,

MARLEY’S GHOST, GHOSTS
Link by link by horrifying link!!!!

(All the Ghosts vanish as suddenly as they came.)
