“Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer” continues to be a popular holiday tune year after year. Almost everyone has heard this novelty song made famous by Elmo and Patsy. But if you tire of hearing about the hoof prints on Grandma’s forehead and need some other silly songs, fear not! There are plenty to keep you smiling.
For instance, the music for “The Twelve Pains of Christmas” may sound incredibly familiar. But you won’t find any partridges in a pear tree in this song. This sounds like something Scrooge himself might have written. Some of the twelve pains? Rigging up these lights, facing my in-laws, batteries not included and finding a Christmas tree. Listen to it for some instant relief when the holiday stress starts to get to you!
And if you’re a fan of “The Twelve Days of Christmas,” another spoof you’ll enjoy is “The Twelve Days After Christmas,” where “my true love and I had a fight.” Uh-oh … the trouble that follows is silly enough make the Grinch smile.
Speaking of the Grinch… “You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch” is a great classic, silly Christmas song with lyrics proclaiming the Grinch to be a “nasty, wasty skunk” whose “heart is full of unwashed socks.”
Another fun song is “I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas.” This classic tune was sung by a 10-year-old girl who assured listeners, “There’s lots of room for him in our two-car garage. I’d feed him there and wash him there and give him his massage.” Indeed!
