The Meanies

Words and music by Ruth Pelham
1997 Ruth Pelham Music

 

When you’re feeling really mean
And you’re feeling really angry
And you feel you want to get into a fight
You want to kick, you want to punch, you want to bite
You want to scratch, you want to pinch
You want to make somebody flinch
And you don’t care if it’s wrong or if it’s right

CHORUS:

Yo, ho, ho, the Meanies are here
Mean, angry Meanies
Meanies angry everywhere
Yo, ho, ho what are you going to do
When Meanies make you do mean things that you don’t mean to do

You can take a big, deep breath
Not let the Meanies get your best
When Meanies make you do mean things that you don’t mean to do

When you’re feeling really mean
And you’re feeling really angry
And you feel you want to get into a fight
You want to clench your fists and shut your teeth down tight
You want your eyes to look like ice
You want your face to look not nice
And you don’t care if it’s wrong or if it’s right

CHORUS

You can slowly count to ten
And if you need to count again
When Meanies make you do mean things that you don’t mean to do

When you’re feeling really mean
And you’re feeling really angry
And you feel you want to get into a fight
You want to hiss and yell at anyone in sight
You want to howl, you want to roar
You want to slam the bedroom door
And you don’t care if it’s wrong or if it’s right

CHORUS

You can think and talk it out
What all these Meanies are about
You can slowly count to ten
And if you need to, count again
You can take a big deep breath
Not let those Meanies get your best
You can stop and sing this song
Have all the Meanies sing along
When Meanies make you do mean things that you don’t mean to do
