Christmas caroling with a dark twist seldom draws a cheery reaction when you’re singing a song like ‘Grandma Got Runover By A Reindeer’ by ‘Home-Free.’ Listen to the lyrics and you’ll by laughing your head off, if not feeling a little guilty at the same time.
Lighten up! It’s Christmas – even though in this song, grandma did indeed get run over. This comedic Christmas tale of loss looks at just how different a house would be without the one that ran it all while jesting at the shock of who ran her over in the first place.
The acapella group Home Free’s dark Christmas carol ‘Grandma Got Runover By A Reindeer’ brings the gift of parody to those already in the Christmas spirit. If you’re looking for a joke to brighten the day and season with a little bit of catchy but obscure humor, then this is your song.
