The Lyrics

Song number 8 on my 12 Days of Christmas Parodies... Time to carve the roast beast!
I'm here on Mount Krumpett hating the Whos
With a heart two sizes small
Plus I've got some extra tight, tight shoes
Wish this Christmas crap would stall

I'm planning out this great big heist
That will make Ocean's crew look lame
They're bound to start a riot
When their gifts are all in flames!
Christmas I boo
The Grinch is my name
And I'll be robbing Whos
So they'll all know who's to blame

I needed to find a reindeer
But since they're scarce there's none to be found
Tied a horn to my dog Max
Now my sleigh's lead by that hound

Slithered and slunk
Yes, My soul's full of gunk
I'm so enraged
And I stink, stank, stunk
Christmas I boo
The Grinch is my name, Oh yeah...
And I'm out robbing Whos
All your presents I will claim, Oh yeah...

[WHO! WHO!] (Repeated in background)

I grabbed your tree
You might think I'm mean
I call it fair trade
You drove me insane
I'll raid each house
Committing felonies!
Popcorn and plums
They'll belong to me

No, I am not one of those Santa's elves
I've gone mad with termite teeth
And I stole drums and checkerboards
What I want to steal is Christmas Day!

Nasty and rude
The Grinch is my name, Oh yeah!
And I'll be robbing the Whos
Till I hear their cries of shame, So sad... They'll frown and cry

Cindy Lou-Who
Kid I almost maimed, Oh yeah
"There's a light here that blew
And I'll fix it" I exclaimed
"Ho, ho"

From the top of Krumpett I'll dump it all
Those Whos will shriek and faint
Widespread their wails
I'll grin as they suffer
I heard a sound that sounded quaint

The sound was singing
They were still merry
Took their packages, boxes and bags!
There's a little more to Christmas
Heart grew three sizes that day, Um yeah...

Presents for Whos!
The Grinch is my name, Oh yeah!
Though my puzzlers sore
Carve your roast beast that I crave, A changed man, Right round
Who! Who!
Oh yeah, No more frowns!
Oh yeah!
Oh yeah!

Fahoo dores, Hear us sing!
Don't need money, To have us all be kings!
That's my story, Step has springs!
Heart used to be slime, Shriveled thing!

Ooo! Who!
Ooo! Who!
Ooo! Who!

All right...

Ooo! Who! Who!
Ooo! Who! Who!
Ooo! Who! Who!
Ooo! Who! Who!
Oh yeah

Bad guy fame!
That's history, Down the drain!
No misery! Not in pain!

Ooo! Who! Who!
Ooo! Who! Who!
Ooo! Who! Who!
Ooo! Who! Who!
Ooo! Who! Who!
Ooo! Who! Who!
Ooo! Who! Who!
Oh yeah!

Oh, I can totally imagine Mick playing the Grinch. Also, today is Keith's 70th birthday. (How he made it that far, who knows.)
