LyricsEdit

Mom got drunk and dad got drunk 
At our Christmas party
We were drinking champagne punch and homemade eggnog
Little sister brought her new boyfriend
He was a Mexican
We didn't know what to think of him 'til he sang
Feliz Navidad, Feliz Navidad

Carve the turkey, turn the ballgame on
Make margaritas 'cause we all want one
Send somebody to the Quickpak store
We need some ice and an extension chord
A can of bean dip and some Diet Rite
A box of tampons and some Marlboro Lights, well
Hallelujah everybody say cheese
Merry Christmas from the family

Fred and Rita drove from Harlingen
I don't remember how I'm kin to them
But when they tried to plug their motor home in they
Blew our Christmas lights
Cousin David knew just what went wrong
So we all waited out on our front lawn
He threw the breaker and the lights all came on
And we sang Silent Night, oh Silent Night

Carve the turkey, turn the ballgame on
Make Bloody Marys when the eggnog's gone
Send somebody to the QuickPak store
We need some ice and an extension chord
A can of bean dip and some Diet Sprite
A box of tampons, and some Marlboro Lights well
Hallelujah everybody say cheese yeah
Merry Christmas from the family 
Feliz Navidad
