Paul Williams
We're Marley and Marley
Averious and greed
We took advantage of the poor
Just ignored the needy
We specialized in causing pain
Spreading fear and doubt
And if you could not pay the rent
We simply threw you out
We're Marley and Marley
Our hearts were painted black
We should have known our evil deeds
Would put us both in shackles
We're double-ironed
Exhausted by the weight
As freedom comes from giving love
So, prison comes with hate
We're Marley and Marley
We're Marley and Marley
Doomed, Scrooge!
You're doomed for all time
Your future is a horror story
Written by your crime
Your chains are forged
By what you say and do
So, have your fun
When life is done
A nightmare waits for you
We're Marley and Marley
We're Marley and Marley
We're Marley and Marley
We're Marley and Marley
We're Marley and Marley

    Song meaning to me. "we should have known our evil deeds would put us both in shackles" meaning they're stuck in they're sin.? They're held captive by it. "as freedom comes of giving love so, prison comes with hate" freedom referring to heaven, and prison referring to hell. "your future is a horror story written by your crime. Your chains are forged by what you say and do.. A nightmare waits for you" the bad chosen to do leads you to something bad. The chains are all the bad things he's done. My guess.
