An ungenerous, chintzy old geezer
Of pennies, a pincher and squeezer
So stingy and cruel
He's a skinflint at yule
No spendthrift is Grinch Ebenezer.
This old fart's the original Scrooge
He's a hard-headed, stingy, rich stooge
He plays host in the night
To three ghosts full of fright
And his heart, once a midget, grows huge.
and Surly Hack
Alistair Sim makes a memorable Ebenezer Scrooge in Brian Desmond Hurst's delightful 1951 filming of Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol".
