Merry Christmas  Robert Earl Keen Jr

[G]Mom got drunk and [C9]Dad got drunk
[G]At our Christmas [C9]party
[G]We were drinkin' [Em]champagne punch
And [C]homemade egg[D]nog
[G]Little sister brought her [C9]new boyfriend
[G]He was a [C9]Mexican
[G]We didn't know what to [Em]think of him
'Til he [C]sang Feliz Navi[D]dad
Feliz Navi[G]dad
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


[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
[G]Hallelujah every[Em]body say cheese
[C]Merry Christmas from the [D]fami[G]ly

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


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.
