Additional Lyrics Verse2 Now we're all so proud of grandpa He's been taking this so well See him in there watching footbal drinking beer and playing cards with Cousin Mel It's not Christmas without Grandma All the family's dressed in black and we just can't help but wonder Should we open up her gifts or send them back. verse 3. Now the goose is on the table and the pudding made of fig and the blue and silver candles that would just have matched the hair on grandma's wig I've warned all my friends and neighbors better watch out for yourselves they should never give a license to a man who drives a sleigh and plays with elves. And yes, I can accept the Pack-Rat of the Year Award :> -- _ __ _ _ _ _ / // / ) // clavenna@cs.utk.edu ' ) ) ). __ /_ __. __ // / // __. __ _ _ _ _ __. / / / / ) / ) ( | // / // / ) /) _(__> / ) ) / ) ) / ) / / (_(__/ (_(__/|__\_/_ Do not save your loving speeches For your friends 'til they are dead; Do not write them on their tombstones, Speak them now instead. - Anna Cummins
