Mr. Fezziwig's Annual Christmas Ball Lyrics


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


(The Ghost of Christmas Past shows Scrooge a happy time from his youth—his apprenticeship with the kind Mr. Fezziwig. A
festive gathering is in proress. Scrooge sees himself as a young man, and sees his first love, Emily.)

MR. FEZZIWIG
“A toast!”
We’re so glad to have you here tonight!

MRS. FEZZIWIG
Pour some wine and
Have yourselves a bite!

MR. AND MRS. FEZZIWIG
Here’s to all
Who’ve come to pay a call:

MR. AND MRS. FEZZIWIG
Mr. Fezziwig’s annual
Christmas ball!
Rat tat tat tat tat … ho!

MRS. FEZZIWIG
Where do bankers
Gallivant like boys?

MR. FEZZIWIG
Where do vicars
Make a holy noise?

MRS. FEZZIWIG
What’s so hot
You’ve got to shed your shawl?

MR. AND MRS. FEZZIWIG
Mr. Fezziwig’s annual
Christmas ball!

MR. AND MRS. FEZZIWIG
Rat tat tat tat tat … ho!

MIDDLE CLASS
Rat tat tat tat tat … ho!

UPPER CLASS
Rat tat tat tat tat tat tat?

WORKING CLASS
No! … Rat tat tat tat tat … ho!

MRS. FEZZIWIG
What makes nannies
Laugh until it hurts?

MR. FEZZIWIG
What gets grannies
Kicking up their skirts?

MR. AND MRS. FEZZIWIG
Where do babies
Dance before they crawl?

ALL
Mr. Fezziwig’s annual
Christmas ball!

ALL
Food and friendship,
Wine and song,
No one turned a-
Way!
We look forward,
All year long
To Christmas Eve when

MRS. FEZZIWIG
Mr. F. puts every penny
Toward the joy and good of many …

HABERDASHER, OTHERS
Haberdashers dashing down the beer,

WORKING CLASS WOMEN
Porters courting
Any girl who’s near,

ALL
Maids and masters dancing wall to wall,

MRS. FEZZIWIG
Mr. Fezziwig’s annual Christmas ball!

(Everyone dances!)

MIDDLE CLASS
Rat tat tat tat tat! ho!

WORKING CLASS
Rat tat tat tat tat! ho!

ALL
Fezziwig’s annual Christmas …

(The Upper Class Couples take the floor and dance elegantly. The floor is now relinquished to the Working Class Men.)

Rat tat tat tat tat tat tat tat tat tat tat tat tat tat tat tat
Rat tat tat tat tat tat tat tat tat tat tat tat tat!

MEN
Here’s to all who’ve come to pay a call!

ALL
Mr. Fezziwig’s annual
Christmas ball!

(Young Scrooge and Emily dance. Old Srooge almost dances with them. Then they’re swept up in the dance and pulled apart.)

Rat tat tat tat tat … ho!
Rat tat tat tat tat … ho!
Rat tat tat tat tat … ho!
Rat tat tat tat tat … ho!
Hearts are beating,
Cheeks are turning red!
Dancing, laughing,
Welcome and well-fed!

MR. AND MRS. FEZZIWIG
Such a glad time
Had by one and all!

SCROOGE
It’s the finest
Ball I can recall.

GHOST OF CHRISTMAS PAST
And for joy,
The price is always small!

SOME GUESTS
