In 2015, two bluegrass lovers took to YouTube to not only showcase their musical talent, but to let listeners in on an embarrassing occurrence that took place during a past Christmas! The men kicked of their perfomance by telling the tale of the event, saying “I remember one Christmas that wasn’t too good. It was pretty louse-y.”
Just in case that discrete pun didn’t give you enough of a clue, these fellas had a funny story to tell, and they set it all to song!
“I’ve got a little Christmas story,” sang the man playing the banjo.” I’m sorry but it’s sad. It’ll either break your heart in two or make you scratch your head.”
From there, the man explained how Santa Claus’ visit one Christmas Eve ended up going horribly wrong. The tale started off innocent enough, as he describes how Santa grew a bit sleepy before he was able to drop off the gifts he towed along for them.
Seeing the living room couch, Santa decided there was no harm in stopping to rest to he could catch some shut-eye. But Santa’s slumber was suddenly disturbed, as he woke up feeling terribly itchy.
“He jumped up in a hurry and checked all his reindeer and flew off into the darkness; they were scratching ear to ear,” sang one of the fellas.
Now you’re probably wondering, why in the world were Santa and his reindeer so itchy? Well, as it turns out Santa left their house with a Christmas gift of his own…a bunch of lice!
This is something that the bluegrass boys confirm later on in their song, as they reveal, “Santa Claus don’t come to our house anymore, he don’t care if we’re naughty or nice We’re the ones that gave Santa Claus and all his reindeer lice!”
If you thought that was funny, just wait until the song continues. The men explain how they tried to get Santa to come back and bring them their gifts, but Santa told them he would never come back! In the end, he agreed to leave the presents on the lawn. Although the guys were happy to have their gifts, they were a bit embarrassed that they are now known for giving Santa a horrible case of lice!
