WARBUCKS

I know the Depression's depressing

GRACE

The carols are stilled
The stored aren't filled

WARBUCKS

And the windows are minus the dressing

GRACE

The children don't grin
The Santa's are thin

GRACE AND WARBUCKS

And I've heard a terrible rumour
No goodwill no cheer

WARBUCKS

But we'll get a new deal for Christmas
This year

ANNIE AND ORPHANS

The snowflakes are frighting of falling

MOLLY

And oh, what a fix
No peppermint sticks!

WARBUCKS

And all through the land folks are bawling

GRACE

And filled with despair
'Cause cupboards are bare

WARBUCKS

But Santa's got brand new assistants
There's nothing to fear
They're bringing a new deal deal for Christmas
This year.

SERVANTS

Bong, bong, bong, bong
Bong, bong, bong, bong

ROOSEVELT

On Farley and Perkins
On Ikes and Wallace
On Monganthau and Cummings.

ALL

Fill our pockets with dollars

ROOSEVELT

On Roper and Swanson

ROOSEVELT AND WARBUCKS

Get along Cordell Hull

ORPHANS

Get along, giddy up!

MEN

Call your committee up

WOMEN

Build every city up

ALL

Cheer every kiddy up
Fill every stocking with laughter
We haven't got room for any more gloom
Let's ring every bell from it's rafter

WARBUCKS

And chime cross the land

ANNIE

Tomorrow's at hand

WARBUCKS

(spoken)
Those happy days that we were promised.

ROOSEVELT

Are finally here

ALL

We're getting a new deal for Christmas
We're getting a new deal for Christmas
We're getting a new deal for Christmas
We're getting a new deal for Christmas
Christmas
This year
