Song Lyric Sunday – You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch

About 10 years ago, this choice would have been very different.  It’s not that I don’t like giving and the idea of Christmas, because I love all of that; I just went through a few years where I didn’t really have a place to call home and then the place my fiance and I lived in was just too small to really decorate or do anything.  I suppose that’s a bit of a cop out.  I really just got tired of Christmas in general… it’s so commercialized and I’m not religious, so the whole other aspect of Christmas is just lost on me at this point.

But… But…

I miss Christmas.  I miss the excitement and the joy and the magic of it all.  I’ve decided (pretty much in the last two hours) that my goal for next year and the rest of my life is to be more like Elf rather than the Grinch.  You are going to see a whole new Christmas me next year, I promise.

But, for now, and this year in particular… I’m the Grinch.  Haha.  I’ve said multiple times this year and in years past, that I hate Christmas.  But truly, deep down, I really do have a heart and I really do love Christmas.  I just haven’t found my idea of Christmas yet.

I hope you enjoy this spectacular version of the song that I heard just today.

And really, Merry Christmas to my most amazing blogging family.  I’ve missed you in the past month and I plan to get back into the swing of things soon.

You’re a Mean One Mr. Grinch Performed by Jordan Smith
Written by Albert Hague
Lyrics found at AZ Lyrics

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!

Just face a music, you’re a monster, Mr. Grinch,
Your heart’s an empty hole,
Your brain is full of spiders, you got 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’re a nasty wasty skunk,
Your heart is full of unwashed socks, your soul is full of gunk, Mr. Grinch!

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 you I’d take the seasick crocodile!
Seasick crocodile!

The three words that best describe you are as follows, and I quote,
“Stink, stank, stunk”!

  1. I posted some of these lyrics in my blog post from the other day. I love the words, like referring to a banana with a greasy, black peel. I love the alliteration of “stink, stank, stunk” too. I kind of feel for the seasick crocodiles and the eel, being compared to such a bitter character, but we can all be Grinches sometimes. I was always a Christmas person, with just an unexplained cheerfulness about me, until a bad breakup a few years ago. After that, I just couldn’t get into the Christmas spirit, but having little children in my life does help. Having traditions to continue is good too.
    Sorry you’ve been ill lately and I hope you are recovering steadily. Coming back from any surgery can be a struggle, as I had a spinal operation right before Christmas once and I remember how that was.
    Glad you are back with us here. Happy Christmas in the years to come.

    • I like the lyrics too… I was a Christmas person as well until my divorce. Maybe even before that it started to go south. But I’m in a much better place now, even if this year turned out to be a bust. Lol. Happy Christmas to you and yours. ❤
