The Lyrics

The title is a Snow White reference. It's sung from the point of view of a grumpy old man
There is someone i know that I really abhor
It's the little boy in the house next door
Do do do do do do do do do do do do do do do
He hit his ball in my yard and i can't believe it
He woke me up asking me to retrieve it
Do do do do do do do do do do do do do do do

Said, "go to a mall
I know that there's one up north
And buy a new ball, or don't play at all
And I'm grumpy like the dwarf
I wasn't awake, now I think I'll make
You go and jump off of a wharf
Your arms I'll take and then they will break
And I'm grumpy like the dwarf

He went running away right back to his friends
I thought that he'd never go near me again
Do do do do do do do do do do do do do do do
But the very next morning he knocked on my door
For the very same reason that he did before
Do do do do do do do do do do do do do do do

Decided that now
He should be thrown off of a wharf
I had a cow he should've known how
I am grumpy like the dwarf
I yelled and I screamed until it seemed
I could not talk anymore
He stopped my dreams, filled my head with steam
And I'm grumpy like the dwarf

Grumpy like the dwarf
Grumpy like the dwarf
Grumpy like the dwarf

"Leave me alone, you're making me moan
Please go and jump off of a wharf
I do not condone you touching my home
And I'm grumpy like the dwarf
Get a new house, one much further south
Or one much further north
Of my life get out you are such a lout
And I'm grumpy like the dwarf"
