Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer Song with Lyrics

The Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer animation is actually based on the novelty song of the same name from 1979.

Written by Randy Brooks and originally performed by husband-and-wife duo Elmo Shropshire and Patsy Trigg, Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer describes a grandmother indulging in Christmas Eve activities when she goes outside into a snowstorm whilst slightly tipsy and encounters Santa Claus’ sleigh.

The lyrics to the comedic song are supplied below:

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 mornin’,
At the scene of the attack,
She had hoof prints on her forehead,
And incriminating Claus marks on her back.

Grandma got run over by a reindeer
Walking home from our house Christmas eve.
(On her way home)
You can say there’s no such thing as Santa,
(Say there’s no Santa)
But as for me and Grandpa, we believe.
(Lord, we believe)

Now we’re all so proud of Grandpa,
He’s been taking this so well.
See him in there watching football,
Drinking beer and playing cards with cousin Belle.

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?

Grandma got run over by a reindeer
Walking home from our house Christmas eve
(Midnight before Christmas)
You can say there’s no such thing as Santa,
(Say there’s no Santa)
But as for me and Grandpa, we believe.
(Lord, we believe)

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
Walking home from our house Christmas eve.
(Minding her own business)
You can say there’s no such thing as Santa,
(What do you mean there’s no Santa?)
But as for me and Grandpa, we believe!
(Lord, we believe)

Oh, As for me and Grandpa, we believe.
