‘Santa Came Home Drunk’
If “Santa Got a DWI” didn’t crush your Christmas spirit, “Santa Came Home Drunk” surely will. Sung by bluesman Clyde Lasley, the song escorts the listener through Santa’s many alcoholic conquests, from gin to whiskey to rum, as he gets soused and fends off an entire bar of people trying to throw him out. Mostly, he just sits there and lists the various brands of alcohol he’s tried and ends with the vague threat that he’ll be back again next year. —Jeff Royer
