The Lyrics

I remember when this song first came out. I think I had one of the earliest 45 rpm pressings from 1979. Rather grim. In the original lyrics it is obvious that Grandma did not survive. However, in the video, she turns up, alive and well, to the cheers of her family. I imagine a similar outcome.
Grandma got run over by a reindeer
She has been laid up with broken bones
We thought there was no hope for recovery
But I just heard today she's coming home
She'd been minding her own business
As she strolled beside the street
But then a sudden altercation
Left her mangled 'neath a herd of cloven feet
Someone called the paramedics
Who administered first aid
Rushed her to the trauma center
Where a critical prognosis soon was made

Grandma got run over by a reindeer
Spent a whole year lying on her back
She just bought herself a thirty-thirty
She's locked and loaded, ready to attack

Now we're rather scared for Grandma
What she's up to we can't tell
Is she watching out for Santa?
If he lands upon our roof, she'll give him hell
She's dressed in her Christmas camo
A stocking cap in ninja black
And it sounded just like thunder
Chilling mix of reindeer squeals
And rifle's crack (rifle's crack)

Grandma shot a herd of guilty reindeer
Vengeance for what happened Christmas Eve
No more transportation left for Santa
He's gonna have to walk now, we believe

Venison is on the table
'Taters fried in reindeer fat
And the mounted set of antlers
Is a most convenient place to hang your hat
I hope Santa gets the message
And the Easter Bunny, too
You go trampling on my Grandma
She is gonna turn around and trample you

Santa, better watch out for your reindeer
When you take your yearly Christmas ride
You'll be stuffed and mounted just Rudolf
Grandma just can't wait to tan your hide

Warn 'em, Grandpa!

Grandma got revenge upon the reindeer
Wasn't gonna take it lying down
If one day there's no such thing as Santa
It's 'cause my Grandma put him in the ground

Merry Christmas
(For now)

she survived in the movie, too. but yes, at least the original song was much darker. which makes granny's revenge here all the sweeter! if you haven't seen it yet, check out a parody I co-wrote a few years back, called "Grandma Murdered Santa And His Reindeer" grandma was similarly violent towards Santa & his reindeer crew, but not for vengeance, it was just someone's violent granny! 5s

I left a comment on your site. Can you believe it's been ten years. I think that's how long I've been writing here. I was actually looking for a different set of lyrics when I found this perennial favorite and cranked it out in one session. Hope some more people see it.
