The Night Santa Went Crazy

Album: Bad Hair Day (1996)

  • Down in the workshop all the elves were makin' toys
    For the good gentile girls and the good gentile boys
    When the boss busted in, nearly scared 'em half to death
    Had a rifle in his hands and cheap whiskey on his breath
    From his beard to his boots he was covered with ammo
    Like a big fat drunk disgruntled Yuletide Rambo
    And he smiled as he said with a twinkle in his eye,
    "Merry Christmas to all, now you're all gonna die!"

    The night Santa went crazy
    The night St. Nick went insane
    Realized he'd been gettin' a raw deal
    Something finally must have snapped in his brain

    Well, the workshop is gone now, he decided to bomb it
    Everywhere you'll find pieces of cupid and comet
    And he tied up his helpers and he held the elves hostage
    And he ground up poor Rudolph into reindeer sausage
    He got dancer and prancer with an old german luger
    And he slashed up Dasher just like Freddy Krueger
    And he picked up a flamethrower and he barbequed Blitzen
    And he took a big bite and said, "It tastes just like chicken!"

    The night Santa went crazy
    The night Kris Kringle went nuts
    Now you can't hardly walk around the North Pole
    Without steppin' in reindeer guts

    There's the National Guard and the F.B.I.
    There's a van from the Eyewitness News
    And helicopters circlin' 'round in the sky
    And the bullets are flyin', the body count's risin'
    And everyone's dyin' to know, oh Santa, why?
    My my my my my my
    You used to be such a jolly guy

    Yes Virginia, now Santa Claus is dead
    Some guy from the swat team blew a hole through his head
    Yes little friend now, that's his brains on the floor,
    I guess they wont have the fat guy kicking around anymore
    But now there's no more presents for children's enjoyment
    And the Elves gotta stand in line and file for unemployment
    And they say Mrs. Clause, she's on the phone every night
    With her lawyer negotiating the movie rights

    They're talkin' bout, the night Santa went crazy
    The night St. Nicholas flipped
    Broke his back for some milk and cookies
    Sounds to me like he was tired of gettin' gypped

    Wo oh, the night Santa went crazy
    The night St. Nick went insane
    Realized he's gettin' a raw deal
    Something finally must have snapped in his brain
    Wo oh, something finally must have snapped in his brain
    Tell ya, something finally must have snapped in his brain Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind

  • Stephen from Mesa, AzIf you had to listen to "Christmas Don't Be Late" « https://www.songfacts.com/facts/the-chipmunks/the-chipmunk-song » for all those years, you'd likely go postal too (peace be on Mr. Bagdasarian).
  • Nathan from ., MnIt's just a song, no reason to take it seriously. Its focus is on the fictional character of Santa, so seeing it as sick is a bit extreme.
  • Tricia from Rockville Centre, NyI am sorry, but this is SICK....Christmas is a happy time of year where we could forget our troubles...but yet remember the times of those who are in trouble and need help, whether it be physically or financially....and this guy is signing about who Santa went berzek! A few years back they had a bad movie about this that was YANKED from the movies....I think this ia a disgrace and shame on Weird AL!
  • Cynthia from Scranton, Pathis and Christmas at Ground Zero are the best Christmas songs ever! I love weird al sooooooooooooo much he is too funny and all-in-all a brilliant musician! Check out his Al TV interviews on youtube! they are all funny but the Kevin Federline one is PRICELESS!
