He hadn't stopped Christmas from coming, it came!
Somehow or other it came just the same.
And the grinch, with his grinch feet ice cold in the snow, stood puzzling & puzzling
"How could it be so,
It came without ribbons,
It came without tags,
It came withoutpackages, boxes or bags!
"He puzzled & puzzed 'til his puzzler was sore,
Then the grinch thought of something he hadn't before
"Maybe Christmas", he thought "doesn't come from a store."
"Maybe Christmas, perhaps means a little bit more...."
