YOU'RE A MEAN ONE, MR. GRINCH
Written by Theodore "Dr." Seuss Geisel and Albert Hague
almost as performed by Whirling Dervishes on "Wish It Would Snow"
**Formatted for Courier 10**

I'm taking my cues for this Dr. Seuss transcription from a great hard-
rock version by a little-known band named Whirling Dervishes. 
Back in 1992 they released a four-song EP of holiday tunes called "Wish 
It Would Snow" on WM Records (PO Box 732, Cranford NJ, 07016). I scored 
a promo copy from the college radio station I worked for at the time it 
came out. Why this didn't become a huge alternarock hit at the time, I 
don't know, but my band used to rip it up 12 months out of the year. 

Here are the complete lyrics to the original song; Whirling 
Dervishes leave out the fourth, fifth and most of the sixth verse. They 
did it with power chords and so will I. Enjoy.

You're a mean one, Mr. Grinch,

    G      A     D
You really are a heel.

	    G           C                 F              Bb       Eb
You're as cuddly as a cactus, you're as charming as an eel, Mr. Grinch.

(N.C.)                     D            G   C   G   C   G   C   G   D
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 foul 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 rotter, Mr. Grinch,
You're the king of sinful sots.
Your heart's a dead tomato splotched with moldy purple spots, Mr. 
Grinch,
You're a three decker sauerkraut and toadstool sandwich with arsenic 
sauce!

You nauseate me, Mr. Grinch,
With a nauseous super "naus!"
You're a crooked dirty jockey and you drive a crooked hoss, Mr. Grinch.
[spoken until the rhyme kicks in]
Your soul is an appalling dump heap overflowing with the most 
disgraceful assortment of rubbish imaginable mangled up in
tangled up knots!

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,

[spoken]
    G			C			G         C     	 G	 C
The three words that best describe you are as follows, and I quote, 

 Eb     D      G
"Stink, stank, stunk!"

Here's a few of the licks I've been able to figure out:

Hopefully that's enough to go on.  Good luck and happy holidays. :)
