What’s the weirdest Christmas song?

I think we can all agree that one of the weirdest Christmas songs is Grandma Got Run Over By a Reindeer. This holiday song is about — you guessed it — how Santa accidentally ran over Grandma in his sled when he was taking off with the reindeer to deliver gifts to all the good girls and boys.

It has funny Christmas songs lyrics (that are also a little disturbing). I’m not sure it’s holiday music kid friendly, but older kids might thinks it’s funny (and weird).
