Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer
Grandma got run over by a reindeer
Walking home from our house Christmas Eve
You can say there's no such thing as Santa
But as for me and Grampa, we believe

She'd been drinkin' too much egg-nog
And we'd begged her not to go
But she'd forgot her medication
And she staggered out the door into the snow

When we found her Christmas morning
At the scene of the attack
She had hoof prints on her forehead
And incriminating Claus marks on her back

Grandma got run over by a reindeer
Walking home from our house Christmas Eve
You can say there's no such thing as Santa
But as for me and Grampa, we believe

Now we're all so proud of Grampa
He's been taking this so well
See him in there watchin football
Drinkin' beer and playing cards with cousin Mel

It's not Christmas without Grandma
All the family's dressed in black
And we just can't help but wonder
Should we open up her gifts or send them back?
(Send them back!)

Grandma got run over by a reindeer
Walking home from our house Christmas Eve
You can say there's no such thing as Santa
But as for me and Grampa, we believe

Now the goose is on the table
And the pudding made of fig, (ah)
And the blue and silver candles
That would just have matched the hair in Grandma's wig

I've warned all my friends and neigbors
"Better watch out for yourselves"
They should never give a license
To a man who drives a sleigh and plays with elves

Grandma got run over by a reindeer
Walking home from our house Christmas Eve
You can say there's no such thing as Santa
But as for me and Grampa, we believe

(Sing it, Grandpa!)

Grandma got run over by a reindeer
Walking home from our house Christmas Eve
You can say there's no such thing as Santa
But as for me and Grampa, we believe

Merry Christmas
