You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch (Easy Piano)


From the original Dr. Seuss cartoon “How the Grinch Stole Christmas!” by Dr. Seuss and Albert Hague, as sung by Thurl Ravenscroft.

This is an easy piano arrangement in A minor, with optional voice. Contains all 6 verses from the original, with repeats and different musical endings for each verse as in the cartoon (see page previews). Best for late beginner pianists and fun for all ages!

This arrangement may be performed as a piano solo or as a vocal accompaniment. Rhythms may be adapted for different verses (some rhythm alternatives have been suggested as cue-sized notes). If used for vocal accompaniment, the vocalist should read the Treble staff of the piano part. Lyrics indicate which notes to follow.
