The Lyrics

I shot your reindeer
But I did not shoot the rest you see, oh no Oh!
I shot your reindeer
But I did not shoot the rest you see, ooh, ooh, oo-ooh
Yeah! All well Santa he wrote this down
Pack next week you're North Pole bound
I think they want to bring me in guilty
Deer trespassed and I got hungry
And they destroyed my property
So I say:

Oh, now, now. Oh!
(I shot the reindeer) – your reindeer
(They de-shingled my entire roof)
Oh, no! (Ooh, ooh, oo-oh) Yeah!
I shot the reindeer- Oh Yum!
And they say he was an endangered species
Yeah! (Ooh, ooh, oo-oh) Yeah!

Oh Come on now was this your only buck
It's not, faun or doe
I am human you know
And the deer is an animal
I need shelter and food to grow
And so:

Read it in North News
(I shot the reindeer.) Oh, Yum!
(But I swear it was in self-defence.)
You ruined my property (Oo-oo-oh)
I say: I shot the reindeer
But I swear it was in self-defense. (Oo-oh) Yeah!

I used Freedom on that day
It all started with a frown, yeah!
All of a sudden I saw shingles fall down
Fallen to frosty ground
So I shot - I shot - I shot him down and I say:
That's the truth no more to say

(I shot the reindeer)
But I say (But I didn't shoot the rest you see)
I didn't shoot the rest you see (oh, no-oh), oh no!
(I shot the reindeer) I did!
But I swear it was in self-defense Oh! (Oo-oo-ooh)

Saint reflexes are not what I see
And what is to be must be:
And this is the true story I will tell
My roof is almost a-gone away
My roof is almost a-gone away
I say:

I - I - I - I shot the reindeer.
Saint, I didn't shoot the rest you see
I - I (shot the reindeer) -
But I didn't shoot no others see, yeah! No, yeah!
