Heard this on Breakfast with the Beatles today. It's not the Beatles but is a fun medley of some mid 60's Brit pop songs mangled humorously into a Christmas themed thing.

Never heard it before, so I'm going to definitely contend it is Obscure

Seems a lot of 60's Motown Family Christmas songs/groups get revived annually. For some reason this one, from 1963, never seems to get played. It's probably my favorite semi-nontraditional Christmas song of them all.

Robert Earl Keen: Merry Christmas From the Family

"Merry Christmas From The Family"

Mom got drunk and Dad got drunk at our Christmas party
We were drinking champagne punch and homemade eggnog
Little sister brought her new boyfriend
He was a Mexican
We didn't know what to think of him until he sang
Feliz Navidad, Feliz Navidad

Brother Ken brought his kids with him
The three from his first wife Lynn
And the two identical twins from his second wife Mary Nell
Of course he brought his new wife Kay
Who talks all about AA
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 cord
A can of bean dip and some Diet Rites
A box of tampons, some Marlboro Lights
Hallelujah everybody say "Cheese"
Merry Christmas from the family

Fred and Rita drove from Harlingen
I can't remember how I'm kin to them
But when they tried to plug their motor home in
They blew our Christmas lights
Cousin David knew just what went wrong
So we all waited out on our front lawn
He threw a breaker and the lights came on
And we sang Silent Night, Oh Silent Night, Oh Holy Night

Carve the turkey turn the ball game on
Make Bloody Mary's
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
Hallelujah, everybody say "Cheese"
Merry Christmas from the Family

Feliz Navidad
Play this live with my wife's family. Love this tune.
