Merry Christmas From The Family Chords

G                  C            G                C
Mom got drunk and Dad got drunk at our Christmas party
G                Em                   C         D
We were drinking champagne punch and homemade eggnog
G                         C
Little sister brought her new boyfriend
G        C
He was a Mexican
G                      Em                     C
We didn't know what to think of him until he sang
      D                   G
Feliz Navidad, Feliz Navidad
Brother Ken brought his kids with him
G                   C
The three from his first wife Lynn
G            Em                       C                D
And the two identical twins from his second wife Mary Nell
G                         C

Who talks all about AA
G                        Em           C     D
Chain smoking while the stereo plays Noel, Noel
The First Noel
Carve the Turkey
Turn the ball game on
Mix margaritas 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 Rites
A box of Tampons, some Marlboro Lights
G               Em
Halelluja everybody say cheese
C                        D    G
Merry Christmas from the family
Fran and Rita drove from Harlingen
G                         C
I can't remember how I'm kin to them
G                                  Em
But when they tried to plug their motor home in
      C                  D
They blew our Christmas lights
G                      C
Cousin David knew just what went wrong
G                       C
So we all waited out on our front lawn
G                             Em
He threw a breaker and the lights came on
    C               D                G     C        G
And we sang Silent Night, oh Silent Night, oh Holy Night
Carve the turkey turn the ball game on
Make Bloody Marys
Cause We All Want One!
Send somebody to the Stop 'N Go
We need some celery and a can of fake snow
A bag of lemons and some Diet Sprites
A box of Tampons, some Salem Lights
G           Em
Halelluja, everybody say cheese
C                        D    G
Merry Christmas from the Family
C          G
Feliz Navidad!
