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 best words that best describe you,
Are as follows, and I quote"

You're a rotter Mr Grinch
You're the king of sinful sots
Your hearts a dead tomato squashed with moldy purple spots
Mr Grinch

Your sole is a 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 noxious super nos
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!

    Not to be a "Grinch" my self but lets start off with some points about people in general... to those of you whom went shopping on thanksgiving you fit the meaning of the modern day Grinch. You forget to spend time with your family to buy them a crappie gift and thus ruined the poor saps that had to work that day to get you a TV or game system or what ever just to get someone a gift that most likely you did not care to be around but you still got them a gift. Besides that is your meaning of Christmas which if you watch the cartoon version they still had Christmas without the gifts and food it was about family and friends getting together. And that is why the Grinch failed to ruin Christmas or stop it from coming and that is what he realized on top of mount crumpet. Not material things but about loved ones. So go get your Grinchy assets to the store and forgo the loved ones you may see 2 times a year when they die the only thing you will "boo-who" will be one less gift to you under the tree. Now on the the meaning the Grinch is a symbol of consumerism and the who's are the true meaning of Christmas.

    The whole point was to show how bad the grinch was before the ending of the movie. If you remember correctly the grinch didnt change for good until the very end. So basically this song was correct until the very last part where the grinch decides to save christmas and live happily ever after

    I think grapes ate good with purple slurple. But the grinch needs to bring some Cheetos if he wants to please Wonder Woman . Maybe when he is old in a nursing home lying in a pool a day old urine he will realize what a shmuck he has been. And that's the true meaning of Christmas.

    Talking about the song, i think it is a funny song about how bad someone is and that it starts to exaggerate about him like he is a heel or that his heart is a dead squashed tomato with moldy purple spots... I read it in class the other day... Very funny to see peoples reactions to the words in this song and put them together to see what is trying to say to you... Dont be mean!!! Lol
