“Dominick the Donkey” by Lou Monte
“Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer” by Elmo & Patsy
This song is a holiday favorite for those with a more morbid sense of humor. Sure, the lyrics are a little twisted, but you can’t resist singing along to its cheerful melody (sorry, Grandma). Keep the laughs going with these hilarious Christmas jokes.
“All I Want for Christmas Is My Two Front Teeth” by Spike Jones & His City Slickers
“I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus” by The Jackson 5
“I Got a Cold for Christmas” by The Ames Brothers
“The Chanukah Song” by Adam Sandler
“Present Face” by Garfunkel and Oates
Have you ever gotten a present you didn’t like, but didn’t want to be rude about it so you smile and say, “Oh, you shouldn’t have”? If so, you’ll relate to this song about that face you make (you know the one) when you get a gift you don’t like. Make sure you don’t see that face at all this year with these amazing gift ideas.
“They Shined Up Rudolph’s Nose” by Johnny Horton
Country fans, this one is for you. Listen to these fun lyrics and sing along with Johnny Horton as he croons about Santa’s favorite reindeer. You can play it while you look for Rudolph-inspired Christmas wreath ideas.
“Miss Fogarty’s Christmas Cake” by The Irish Rovers
This funny Irish Christmas tune tells about the downside of being polite around the holidays. Case in point: eating Miss Fogarty’s Christmas cake (even though you really shouldn’t).
“We’re Coming to Your Home” by The Three Stooges
This hilarious song about less-than-welcome house guests is an absolute holiday classic. Plus, you can play it as a way to encourage your guests to leave.
“Nuttin’ for Christmas” by Barry Gordon
This is a song for the kids on the naughty list this year. Listen as Barry Gordon sings about what he did to land on Santa’s bad side.
“A Christmas Carol” by Tom Lehrer
Most famous for his song about the periodic table, musical comedian and satirist Tom Lehrer sang this anti-carol back in 1959. However, the hilarious lyrics about commercialization and useless (but expensive!) gifts are just as relevant today.
“Snoopy’s Christmas” by The Royal Guardsmen
What could be better than having our favorite pooch Snoopy over for Christmas? This seasonal bop depicting Snoopy as a World War I fighter pilot on a Christmas mission first came out in 1967. It’s been delighting us ever since, just like these Christmas books.
“California Christmastime” by the Crazy Ex-Girlfriend cast
If your Christmas isn’t exactly snowy, you’ll love this funny Christmas song from the hit TV show Crazy Ex-Girlfriend. Grab your eggnog fro-yo and head to the beach in December just because you can.
“It’s Not Christmas Till Somebody Cries” by Carly Rae Jepsen
This song is full of relatable Christmas traditions, like family arguments, kids waking up at the crack of dawn, present shenanigans and someone breaking down in tears before the turkey is even served. It’s the most magical time of the year!
May these funny Christmas songs add some humor to your holidays. If you’re looking for more laughs, put these funny Christmas movies on your holiday binge list.
