YOU'RE A MEAN ONE, MR. GRINCH! (Albert Hague (m) / Theodor Seuss Geisel (l) ) Thurl Ravenscroft You're a mean one Mr. Grinch You really are a heel You're as cuddly as a cactus You're as charming as an eel Mr. Grinch. You're a bad banana, With a greasy black peel. You're a monster Mr. Grinch Your heart's an empty hole Your brain is full of spiders You've got garlic in your soul Mr. Grinch. I wouldn't touch you With a thirty-nine-and-a-half foot pole. You're a vile one Mr. Grinch You have termites in your smile You have all the tender sweetness Of a seasick crocodile Mr. Grinch. Given the choice between the two of you I'd take the seasick crocodile. You're a foul one Mr. Grinch You're a nasty wasty skunk Your heart is full of unwashed socks Your soul is full of gunk Mr. Grinch. The three words that best describe you Are as follows and I quote, "Stink, stank, stunk!". You're a rotter Mr. Grinch You're the king of sinful sots Your heart's a dead tomato Splotched with mouldy purple spots Mr. Grinch. Your soul is an appalling dump-heap Overflowing with the most disgraceful assortment Of deplorable rubbish imaginable Mangled-up in tangled-up knots. You nauseate me Mr. Grinch With a nauseous super naus You're a crooked jerky jockey And you drive a crooked hoss Mr. Grinch. You're a three-decker sauerkraut and toadstool sandwich With arsenic sauce. NOTES: Lyrics as sung by Thurl Ravenscroft 1966 'How The Grinch Stole Christmas!'. This TV short (26 mins) was released Dec 16 1966 (USA) Theodor Seuss Geisel (a.k.a. Dr. Seuss), an American of German parentage, is perhaps best known for his 46 imaginative children's books which contained very unique rhyme and characters. Not surprisingly, one of his pen names was Theo LeSieg, Geisel spelled backwards. (Transcribed by David Story - December 2013)
