(Verse 1)
END:2m50s = 230s
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
(jazz music)
(Verse 2)
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
(Verse 3)
You're a vile one,
Mr. Grinch
You have termites
in your
You have all the tender sweetness
Of a seasick crocodile,
Mr. Grinch
Given the choice between the two of you
I'd take the
(Verse 4)
You're a foul one,
Mr. Grinch
You're a nasty,
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
(jazz music)
(Verse 5)
You're a rotter,
Mr. Grinch
You're the king of sinful sots
Your heart's a dead tomato splotched
With moldy purple spots,
Mr. Grinch
Your soul is an appalling dump heap
Overflowing with the most disgraceful assortment
Of deplorable rubbish imaginable
Mangled up in
(Verse 6)
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
