Sunny Side Up

“And then, they'll do something I hate most of all. Every Who down in Who-ville,
the tall and the small, will stand close together... with Christmas bells ringing.
They'll stand hand in hand... and those Whos... will start singing!”
- Grinch -

This week’s smile is a music video of my favourite movie of the season, the 1966 classic “The Grinch Who Stole Christmas”.

Yes, ‘you’re a mean one, Mr. Grinch’, but Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without you.

Here are the wonderfully wacky lyrics to this well-known song:

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 crockodile.

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, 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 splot
With moldy purple spots,
Mr. Grinch.

Your soul is an apalling 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 nauseaus super-naus.
You're a crooked jerky jockey
And you drive a crooked horse.
Mr. Grinch.

You're a three decker saurkraut and toadstool sandwich
With arsenic sauce.

Enjoy the weekend, everyone.


  1. "Your heart is full of unwashed socks" hahaha! I love Dr. Seuss.

  2. Me, too! He's the best. I used to read his stories to my kids when they were young. They are so much fun.
