"Trim Up the Tree" is a song written for the 1966 special Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas! It is sung offscreen by the people of Whoville as they decorate their houses for Christmas, which is coming the next day. It is the only song in the special that was not also used in the 2000 live-action film, the 2018 CGI film, or the Broadway musical (and its television adaptation).

Female Whos: Trim up the tree with Christmas stuff
Like bingle balls and whofoo fluff
Trim up the townwith goowho gums
And bizilbix and wums
Male Whos: Trim every blessed window
And trim every blessed door
Female Whos: Hang up whoboohoo bricks
All: Then run out and get some more!
Hang pantookas on the ceilings
Pile pankunas on the floor
Trim every blessed needle
On the blessed Christmas tree
Christmas comes tomorrow
Trim you, trim me!
Trim up your pets with fuzzle fuzz
And whiffer bloofs and wuzzle wuzz
Trim up your uncle and your aunt
With yards of whofut flant…
Males: (repeats the last line as backup vocals)
All: Trim every house in Whoville
From the cellar to the roof
Hang up a mile of dafflers
And three miles of snaffer snoof!
Hang dang-donglers on the bathtub
Trim the occupant the with floof
To every home in Whoville
And to every blessed Who
Christmas comes tomorrow
Trim me, trim you!
Trim up the tree with Christmas stuff
Like bingle balls and whofoo fluff
Trim up the town with goowho gums
And bizilbix and wums…
(Trim up the tree with bizilbix and wums)
