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 Grandpa, we believe

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

When we found her Christmas mornin'
At the scene of the attack
She had hoof prints on her forehead
And incriminatin' 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 Grandpa, we believe

Now we're all so proud of Grandpa
He's been takin' this so well
See him in there, watchin' football
Drinkin' beer and playin' 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?

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 Grandpa, we believe

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

I've warned all my friends and neighbors
"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 Grandpa, 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 Grandpa, we believe

Merry Christmas
