The Lyrics

Even magical flying reindeer eventually retire, so after Christmas is over Santa works with the young ones to get them ready
When you get in the harness and you're standing in front of the sleigh
Be prepared to take off when I yell "dash away"
Then we'll fly in a circle and we'll land here again
Ho ho ho

Do you, do you want me to choose you
You better not let the sleighbells confuse you
Getting really cocky, and you think you're the answer
Well you may have some talent but you ain't no Dancer

Reindeer practice
Reindeer practice
Reindeer practice

Got to learn that you can't delay me
You gotta be fast if you want to sleigh me
Let's see how you do next to Prancer
You're showing some promise but you ain't no Dancer

Look out!
Reindeer practice
Reindeer practice
Reindeer practice

Look out, you spilled the sack!

Got to go 'round the planet with the toys in the back of the sleigh
Got to hit every house and be back in a day
Then we rest 'til next Christmas and we do it again
Ho ho ho

Well do you think you're ready to try it
Whatta you mean that I need to diet?
Flying o'er the tropic of cancer
You're making the circuit just as fast as Dancer

Good job!
Reindeer practice
Reindeer practice
Reindeer practice

Look out
Reindeer practice

We're dropping too fast!
Toward that roof
Please slow down
Dropping too fast!
I think we're gonna crash!


There's an antler up my -------!

Unique and different

Huh - I gues it makes sense - flying rookie reindeer in a cirle and landing them. The Air Force does the same thing - they call it touch and go. They take off, fly a circle and land the wheels down but don't roll to a stop. They instead goose it and take off again. It's how USAF pilots get their flying time and retain their flight status pay.

This is cute and how I wish the weather would get to fall already. I'm getting tired of the heat already. This cooled me down just thinking about December. Fine job here.

A tad out of season, but since Magic Kingdom already has they're Halloween decorations out and it's only the start of September I can forgive you on that matter, because if the largest company in the world can do it you can do it too. I loved this one Rex, really did... This has to be one the Beatles best songs, because it goes against their normal dreamy/boring crap, and goes with some guitar thrashing hard rock, and this song also looks pretty tough to try and parody, so great job on that account. I really liked how you used Dancer (Making fun of the Dancer that the Beatles put in)... I thought that joke would get old, but it didn't. Lovely stuff Rex, this is going to be a tough round.

Great performance, too bad it wasn't you last night

(Artistry) While the young reindeer go through reindeer practice, the old reindeer are used for target practice, presumably. Or they would be if I was Santa. Anyways, this is an interesting spin on the old Xmas-related parody, and well done to boot. 555 new recruits for you!

This xmas parody rules. It's earned a spot right next to Tenacious D's Things I Want on our list of christmas tunes. You know, Things I Want is a really cool song.

(ARtistry) I didn't see this pacing as well as everyone else says, but still enough for a 555--along with a great, unexpected holiday theme against a crushing tune (you took it back from Charlie Manson again!)

It's been a while since I heard this song... nice contrast between your parody lyrics and the original.

(Artistry) Hmm, pacing wasn't as tight as I am used to on your stuff--but based on it being parody '1711' of 60s Beatles, that means this one is not among your newer works, so that aside--thought the idea was good, and of all Beatles songs, this is my least favorite original, so definitely an improvement.

Ag and BAD.....there must be multiple versions of this out there, because (except for a little bit at the end) it paces perfectly with the copy I have.

This is my first time hearing this song, and I love it! But I gotta ask...are these the same reindeer that ran grandma over?
Jeff Reuben - September 18, 2008 - Report this comment
This is excellent! I love the original idea behind the song, and I laughed throughout.!

(Artistry) Sleigh me? Oy! Great ending line. As if Santa didn't have enough to worry about. :-)

Once again, this parody rules. It's sure to get you a spot on Santa's nice list this year.
