Song Lyric Sunday 12/25/16 – You’re a Mean One Mr. Grinch

Hah. The Song Lyric Sunday theme is a favorite holiday song or one that best describes how I feel? I’ll just leave it at this. I’m feeling super Grinchy and incredibly bitchy (seriously, fuck the holidays – it sucks when you have no friends, you don’t get along with your family and you have to spend it alone and bitter) so I figured this song said it better than I could. I have no further comment.

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 have 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 a 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 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 tangled up knots!

You nauseate me, Mr. Grinch,
With a nauseous super naus,
You’re a crooked jerky jockey and you drive a crooked horse, Mr. Grinch,
You’re a three decker sauerkraut and toadstool sandwich with arsenic sauce!

  1. This time of year certainly feels designed to exclude anyone who doesn’t go along with the program, who has not got the makings of a proper celebration. It reminds us of a lot of memories from past years and it can be incredibly difficult.
    This song is a classic. I think the words are the cleverest and they certainly paint a picture.
