Clarksville, TN – Twas the week of Christmas and all through the town
A Green Grinch could be seen stirring around.
From Cunningham to St. Bethlehem
He was up to no good.
Stealing Christmas Cheer
Everywhere he stood.
Till the Sheriff said, “NO MORE!
Bring him in, for he must pay,
No one ruins Christmas Day!”
Searched the town high and low.
They found him hiding on Porter’s Bluff
And quickly placed him in handcuffs.
The Grinch was shocked and scared
He begged and pleaded in despair.
I can be better you will see
I can give back to the community.
The Montgomery County Judge agreed
Community service will be your plea.
You must give back what you stole
And do it all on your own bankroll.
So off to the store he went
With his very last green cent.
In search of hundreds of toys
For all the good girls and boys.
He reached in his pockets deep
And after many good deeds.
A heart once too small
Now grew by leaps.
