about

Scrooge is an upbeat electro anti-folk pop song by Team Smile and Nod from their debut album, Look Both Ways Before You Die, about being a lesbian tired of the holidays (especially Christmas).

lyrics

i’d rather be a scrooge
and like myself
then pretend for you

i’m not christian
and i’d rather not be
wished merry christmas
and after that
let’s just skip
all that pointless talk of work
and by the way
this girl next to me
is my partner
we’ve been together 6 years
and she’s not my fucking roommate
to make it more clear
we are lesbians
i’m not ashamed
and you really should not
be ashamed either

i’d rather be a scrooge
and like myself
then pretend for you

you may say you’ve never
seen me so selfish
but i say, but i say i’ve never been
so honest to myself
if you’re honest you know
you really don’t like me either
so what’s the point... of us all
so what’s the point of us
hanging around together

i’d rather be a scrooge
and like myself
then pretend for you
