Song Lyric of the Day (Dr. Seuss, on That ‘Mean One, Mr. Grinch’)

“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.”—“You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch,” lyrics by Theodor "Dr. Seuss" Geisel, music by Albert Hague, performed by Thurl Ravenscroft, from the animated TV special How the Grinch Stole Christmas!, original air date Dec. 18, 1966
For some interesting trivia on this holiday special (so beloved by baby boomers, particularly), see this TV Guide summary on its 50th anniversary concerning “5 Things You Didn't Know About How the Grinch Stole Christmas!”
