Grandma Got Run Over By a Reindeer

Elmo and Patsy

Grandma got run over by a reindeer
walking home from our house Christmas Eve
You can say there's no such thing as Santa
    D                        G
but as for me and grandpa we believe

Em                           D
She'd been drinking too much egg nog
and we warned her not to go
but she forgot her medication
        G                D             G
and she wandered out the door into the snow

When we found her Christmas morning
at the scene of the attack
there were hoofprints on her forehead
and incriminating claw marks on her back

It's not Christmas without grandma
all the family's dressed in black
and we just cant help but wonder
should we open up her gifts or send them back !

Now were all so proud of grandpa
he's been taking this so well
see him in there watching football
drinking beer and playing cards with cousin Mel


Now the goose is on the table
and the pudding made of fig
and the blue and silver candles
that would just have matched the hair in grandmas wig

I've warned all my friends and neighbors
better watch out for your selves
they should never give a license
to a man who drives a sleigh and plays with elves !
