"How the Grinch Occupied Whoville"
lyrics by MC Lars / beat by Dicepticon
Each Who down in Whoville liked Christmas a lot
But the Grinch up north, well he sure did not
He sure hated Christmas and hated the season
Don't ask me why, no one knows the reason
As the 1% with a grinchy frown
And that corporate greed, 'cause he couldn't be down
With the joyful smiles of the girls and boys
Making hella Christmas noise with their Christmas toys
That he wanted for himself so the Grinch began
To occupy Whoville, with a twisted a plan
With a coat and a hat and a Grinchy trick
He chuckled and clucked, "I look like St. Nick"
His reindeer, in fact, it was Max the dog
Red thread on his head with a horn tied on
He loaded some bags and some empty sacks
On a ramshackle sleigh that he hitched to Max
The windows were dark and snow filled the air
The Whos were all dreaming sweet dreams without care
He slid down the chimney, a rather tight pinch
If Santa could do it, then so could the Grinch
Too big to fail, he was unregulated
Like banks up on Wall Street with pockets inflated
Heart was so greedy, proceeded to take
The iPads, and laptops and new roller skates
Up in the icebox, he stole the whole feast
The pudding, the ham, the corn and roast beef
Stuffed the food in the chimney and left with much glee
"And now" said the Grinch, "I will stuff up the tree"
but then he heard something, it was a small Who
Who yelled "Hold on, stop!" it was young Cindy Liu
She stood there upset, a sad look on her face
He sprayed her with mace and was out of that place
This is how the Grinch, this is how the Grinch
This is how the Grinch occupied Whoville
At a quarter past two, the Whos still in bed,
All still a-snooze, so he packed up his sled
He packed it with presents! The ribbons! The wrappings!
The tags and the tinsel! The trimmings! The trappings!
Three thousand feet up on the side of the mountain
He rode with the loot and decided to count it
He thought of the Whos, 99% percent
Now he was the richest, he knew what it meant
He gambled the hedge-funds and merged all the banks
For the GLB act, he had to give thanks
With no limitation to all he could earn
The billions of dollars in wealth he observed
He thought of Whos all lining the streets
"We're starving" they'd say, "we have nothing to eat"
He laughed till he heard something else in the snow,
It started out low, then it began grow
This sound wasn't sad! This sound sounded merry!
It couldn't be so but it was merry, very!
He starred down in Who-ville, and popped out his eyes
He couldn't believe this amazing surprise
Each Who down in Who--ville, the tall and the small,
Was singing - so loud with no presents at all
He hadn't stopped Christmas from coming, it came!
Somehow or other, it came just the same
He thought, "Maybe my greed is destructive and wrong"
He ran down the hill and joined in on their song
He gave back the gifts and carved up the roast
A glass in his hand, led them all in a toast
What happened right then - well in Whoville the say
the Grinch's small heart, got much bigger that day
Everyone cheered and they all gave much thanks
He occupied Whoville, restructured the banks
They repealed the Gramm-Leach-Bliley act
While the hedge-fund gamblers all got taxed
And the bailouts got paid for by the banks in fact
Merry Christmas everyone, so occupy that!
