Merry christmas

Robert Earl Keen



 GC9
 Mom got drunk and Dad got drunk
 GC9
 At our Christmas party
 GEm
 We were drinkin' champagne punch
 CD
And homemade eggnog
 GC9
 Little sister brought her new boyfriend
 GC9
 He was a Mexican
 GEm
 We didn't know what to think of him
 CD
'Til he sang Feliz Navidad
 G
Feliz Navidad
Brother Ken brought his kids with him
The three from his first wife Lynn
And the two identical twins
>From his second wife MaryNell
Of course he brought his new wife Kaye
Who talks all about AA
Chain smokin' while the stero plays
Noel, Noel, The first Noel
CHORUS:
 D
 Carve the turkey turn the ball game on
 C
 Mix Margaritas when the eggnog's gone
 D
 Send somebody to the Quik-Pak store
 C
 We need some ice and an extention cord
 D
 A can of bean dip and some Diet Rite
 C
 A box of tampons and some Marlboro Lights
 GEm
 Hallelujah everybody say cheese
 CDG
 Merry Christmas from the family
Fran and Rita drove from Harlingen
I can't remember how I'm kin to them
But when they tried to plug their motorhome in
They blew our christmas lights
Cousin David knew just what went wrong
So we all waited on our front lawn
He threw the breaker and the lights came on
And we sang Silent Night
Oh Silent Night
CHORUS:
Carve the turkey turn the ballgame on
Make Bloody Marys cause we all want one
Send somebody to the Stop 'n Go
We need some celery and a can of fake snow
A bag of lemons and some Dite Sprite
A box of tampons and some Salem Lights
Hallelujah everybody say cheese
Merry Christmas from the family
Feliz Navidad.
