You're a Mean One, Mr. Grinch
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 "All I need is a reindeer" The Grinch looked around But since reindeer are scarce, there was none to be found Did that stop the Grinch Ha, the Grinch simply said "If I can't find a reindeer, I'll make one instead!" So he took his dog Max, he took some black thread And he tied a big horn on top of his head Then he loaded some bags and some old empty sacks On a ramshackle sleigh And he whistled for Max Then the Grinch said, "Giddap!" And the sleigh started down Toward the homes where the Whos lay asnooze in their town All their windows were dark No one knew he was there All the Whos were all dreaming sweet dreams without care When he came to the first little house on the square "This is stop number one," the old Grinchy Claus hissed And he climbed to the roof, empty bags in his fist Then he slid down the chimney, a rather tight pinch But, if Santa could do it, then so could the Grinch He got stuck only once, for a minute or two Then he stuck his head out of the fireplace flue Where the little Who stockings all hung in a row "These stockings," he grinched, "are the first things to go!" Then he slithered and slunk, with a smile most unpleasant Around the whole room, and he took every present! Pop guns! And bicycles! Roller skates! Drums! Checkerboards! Tricycles! Popcorn! And plums! And he stuffed them in bags, then the Grinch, very nimbly Stuffed all the bags, one by one, up the chimney!
