Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer lyrics

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 drinking too much eggnog,
And we begged her not to go.
But she 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.

Now we're all so proud of grandpa,
He's been taking this so well.
See him in there watching football,
Drinking root 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!!

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 on 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" is a comedy Christmas song and the eponymous animated film. Written by Randy Brooks, the song was originally performed by the husband and wife duo of Elmo and Patsy Shropshire, in 1979. Shropshire Brooks offered the rights to the song for $ 500, saying his own band will not allow you to play.

The song was originally self-published by the Shropshire in 1979 on his own record label ( "Elmo 'n' Patsy"), with the B-side called "Christmas". In the 1980s, the song is becoming a hit of the season, first in the country and then stations in the Top 40 stations.

In 2000, animated TV show Grandma Got run over by a Reindeer portrays the events described in the song - however, being made for children, the cartoon was downgraded to adult content, so that the grandmother did not dies, and Santa is actually innocent of the crime, which was devised in place of an intriguing family.
