Written by Theodore "Dr." Seuss Geisel and Albert Hague
almost as performed by Whirling Dervishes on "Wish It Would Snow"

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. 


   G	C	F	Bb	A	D	Eb
E -----------------------------------------------
B -----------------------------------------------
G ----------5-----------3-----7-----7-----8------
D ----5-----5-----3-----3-----7-----7-----8------
A ----5-----3-----3-----1-----5-----5-----6------
E ----3-----------1------------------------------

         G        C    F      Bb
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. 
You're a three decker sauerkraut and toadstool sandwich with arsenic 

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. 

 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:

	    G        C    F             Bb     G      A
E --------------------------------------------------------------
B --------------------------------------------------------------
G ------------------------------2-1-0---------------------------
D ------------------------------------3-------------------------
A --------------------------------------------------------------
E --------------------------------------------------------------

  You're a mean one, Mr. Grinch          You really are 

E --------------------------------------------------------------
B -----------7--------------------------------------------------
G -------------7------------------------------------------------
D ---------7-----7----------------------------------------------
A -------5---------5--------------------------------------------
E --------------------------------------------------------------
  a heel
      (you're picking the full barre chord here)

The lick on the opening and refrains:

E ---------8--------------8-------------8-------------8-10------
B -8-11-10----8---8-11-10---8---8-11-10---8---8-11-10-----------
G --------------------------------------------------------------
D --------------------------------------------------------------
A --------------------------------------------------------------
E --------------------------------------------------------------

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