“Leroy The Redneck Reindeer” Lyrics

Well, you’ve all heard the story
About Rudolph and his nose
But I’ll tell you a Christmas tale
That never has been told
You may think you’ve heard it all
But you ain’t heard nothing yet
About that crazy Christmas
The North Pole can’t forget
Well, Rudolph was under the weather
He had to call-in sick
So he got on the horn to his cousin, Leroy
Who lived out in the sticks
He said: “Santa’s really countin’ on me
And I hate to pass the buck.”
Leroy said: “Hey, I’m on my way.”
And he jumped in his pick-up truck
When Leroy got to the North Pole
All the reindeer snickered and laughed
They’d never seen a reindeer in overalls
And a John Deere tractor hat
Santa jumped in and said: “Just calm down
‘Cause we’ve all got a job to do
And like it or not, Leroy’s in charge
And he’s gonna be leadin’ you.”
And it was Leroy, the redneck reindeer
Hooked to the front of the sleigh
Deliverin’ toys to all the good ol’ boys
And girls along the way
He’s just a down home, party animal
Two-stepping across the sky
He mixed jingle bells with a rebel yell
And made history that night
Before that night was over
Leroy had changed their tune
He had ’em scootin’ a hoof on every roof
By the light of the neon moon
Santa wrapped his bag with a dixie-flag
He was havin’ the time of his life
And you could hear him call
“Merry Christmas to y’all
And to all of y’all a goodnight.”
And it was Leroy, the redneck reindeer
Hooked to the front of the sleigh
Deliverin’ toys to all the good ol’ boys
And girls along the way
He’s just a down home, party animal
Two-stepping across the sky
He mixed jingle bells with a rebel yell
And made history that night
He mixed jingle bells with rebel yell
And made history that night
