WE'RE DESPICABLE

from Mr. Magoo's Christmas Carol
Music by Jule Styne; lyrics by Bob Merrill

We're (pause) des-(pause)-picable
We make ourselves (pause) plain sick-able
Berate ourselves, hate ourselves viciously
Still none of us wishes he (pause) could change.

We're slick (pause) and (pause) shifty birds
With fingers quick (pause) as fifty birds.
While stealing your purse or your ticky-tock
Just for a kick we knock (pause) you flat.

La, la, la-la-la-la-la.
La, la, la-la-la-la-la.
La, la, la-la-la-la-la.
We're just blankety-blank-blank (pause) no good!

We're not (pause) tea-(pause)-party blokes
No chitty-chat (pause) and arty-chokes
We're twice as blood-thirsty as cannibules
And wilder than animules (pause) are we.

We're rep-(pause)-re-(pause)-hensible
We'll steal your pen (pause) and pencible.
We'll sneer at you, leer at you naughtily
And really we ought to be (pause) in jail.

La, la, la-la-la-la-la.
La, la, la-la-la-la-la.
La, la, la-la-la-la-la.
We're just blankety-blank-blank (pause) all bad!
