You're a Mean One, Mr. Grinch” is a Christmas song that was originally written and composed for the 1966 animated special Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas!.
The lyrics were written by Theodor “Dr. Seuss” Geisel, the music was composed by Albert Hague, and the song was performed by Thurl Ravenscroft.
Because Ravenscroft was not credited in the closing credits of the special, it is often mistakenly attributed to Boris Karloff, who served as narrator and the voice of the Grinch in the special but who himself was not a trained singer. Until Ravenscroft was publicly credited, Tennessee Ernie Ford was also speculated to be the voice behind the song.
The soundtrack to the special won the Grammy Award for Best Album for Children at the 10th Annual Grammy Awards.
The song has been incorporated into most other adaptations of the story. In the 2000 live-action film, Jim Carrey performs the song in character as the Grinch, singing about himself. The stage musical adaptation included the song in the score, among several other original numbers composed specifically for that production. The 2018 CGI animated film features a substantially updated version of the song from Tyler, the Creator featuring an orchestral arrangement by Danny Elfman.
The song was also covered by New Jersey alternative rock band the Whirling Dervishes. Writer Chris Jordan of the Asbury Park Press called their version “wonderfully depraved in the best of holiday ways” and noted that their version had “become a Jersey classic

With this coat and this hat, I'll look just like Saint Nick
Ho, ho, ho!
You're a mean one, Mr. Grinch
You really are a heel
You're as cuddly as a cactus
And as charming as an eel, Mr. Grinch
You're a bad banana with a greasy black peel
Just face the music, you're a monster, Mr. Grinch, yes, you are
Your heart's an empty hole
Your brain is full of spiders
You've got garlic in your soul, Mr. Grinch
I wouldn't touch you with a thirty-nine-and-a-half foot pole
You know if you ask the Who's Who of Whoville
No one's denying
You're a vile one, Mr. Grinch
You have termites in your smile
You have all the tender sweetness
Of a seasick crocodile, Mr. Grinch
Given the choice between you
I'd take the seasick crocodile
