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."


He mixed jingle bells with rebel yell 
And made history that night
