The Lyrics

This is what I can follow along with while listening at Youtube
(I shot your reindeer) but I did not shoot the rest you see
(I shot your reindeer) but I did not shoot the rest you see

Well now Santa wrote this down
Pack next week you're North Pole bound
I think they want to bring me in guilty
Deer trespassed and I did get hungry
And they destroyed my property
So I say:

(I shot the reindeer) what I saw was not a playful tease
(I shot the reindeer) And they say he was an endangered species

Oh Come now was this your only buck?
It's not faun or doe
I am a human you know
I thought shoot, before indoor snow
I thought shoot, before indoor snow
And so:

(I shot the reindeer) but I swear it was in self-defense
(I shot the reindeer) but I swear it was in self-defense

I used Freedom on that day
It all started with a frown
All of a sudden I saw shingles fall down
Breaking my sweet home down
So I shot, I shot him down
So hey:

(I shot the reindeer) but I didn't shoot the rest you see
(I shot the reindeer) but I didn't shoot the rest you see

Saint Nicholas have some slack for me
And from my home I won’t flee
And this is the true story I will tell
My roof is almost a-gone away
My roof is almost a-gone away
So I say:

( I shot the reindeer) but I didn't shoot the rest you see, oh no
(I shot the reindeer) but I didn't shoot the rest you see, oh no

Clapton did NOT write "I Shot the Sheriff" Performed yes, wrote no! Writer would be Bob Marley

Parody authors often base their parody based on the performance they reference, not the original recording. Hence, Amiright's policy of listing the Performer, not the Writer.

Schwarzstop--you are write--performed by--which is WHAT IT SAYS UP TOP "Original Performer: I Shot the Sheriff". . .
