158- "YOU'RE A MEAN ONE, MR. GRINCH"......

Most of us grew up with Dr. Seuss, but do you remember this 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.

"...Given the choice between the two of you
I'd take the seasick crockodile....

"The three words that best dscribe you,
are, and I quote: 'Stink. Stank. Stunk....'

"You're a three decker saukraut and toadstool
With arsenc sauce...."

(Got to, over Christmas, see a neat take on the history of the Grinch's creation, including the guy who sings my fave and only version of the Mr. Grinch song in the film. Yeah, little thrills often come in small packages!)

(Copyright 1957, Dr. Seuss)
