Feliz Navidad can be rendered listenable with a well placed parody lyric:

“Mr. Coyote always gets me good, boy,”  Ellery said, winking.  “Almost forgot what life was like before I got me my own personal coyote.”

Oh, yeah. I'm not so fond as I might be of Blue Christmas. What a downer!  :P

Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer.

The only thing that could make that song stoopider is to have the Chipmunks sing it.

Hey! I think that's actually a funny idea! Would be good for a laugh, for certain. At least once.

It just occurred to me: Alvin and the Chipmunks do have their own Christmas song.

Remember? Alvin wants a hula-hoop.  ;D

More than a song, they had their own Christmas album.  Here's "Christmas, Don't Be Late":

#2.  "Dominick The Donkey."  Recorded by Lou Monte, the song is about a donkey that helps Santa give out gifts in Italy.  Lou sings it with an Italian accent, saying things like "jingity jing, hee haw hee haw"  

Quote
Lyrics to Dominic The Italian Christmas Donkey :

Hey! Chingedy ching,
(hee-haw, hee-haw)
It's Dominick the donkey.
Chingedy ching,
(hee-haw, hee-haw)
The Italian Christmas donkey.
(la la la-la la-la la la la la)
(la la la-la la-la la-ee-oh-da)
Santa's got a little friend,
His name is Dominick.
The cutest little donkey,
You never see him kick.
When Santa visits his paisons,
With Dominick he'll be.
Because the reindeer cannot,
Climb the hills of Italy.

Hey! Chingedy ching,
(hee-haw, hee-haw)
It's Dominick the donkey.
Chingedy ching,
(hee-haw, hee-haw)
The Italian Christmas donkey.
(la la la-la la-la la la la la)
(la la la-la la-la la-ee-oh-da)

Jingle bells around his feet,
And presents on the sled.
Hey! Look at the mayor's derby,
On top of Dominick's head.
A pair of shoes for Louie,
And a dress for Josephine.
The labels on the inside says,
They're made in Brooklyn.

Hey! Chingedy ching,
(hee-haw, hee-haw)
It's Dominick the donkey.
Chingedy ching,
(hee-haw, hee-haw)
The Italian Christmas donkey.
(la la la-la la-la la la la la)
(la la la-la la-la la-ee-oh-da)

Children sing, and clap their hands,
And Dominick starts to dance.
They talk Italian to him,
And he even understands.

Cumpare sing,
Cumpare su,
And dance 'sta tarantel.
When jusamagora comes to town,
And brings du ciuccianello.

Hey! Chingedy ching,
(hee-haw, hee-haw)
It's Dominick the donkey.
Chingedy ching,
(hee-haw, hee-haw)
The Italian Christmas donkey.
(la la la-la la-la la la la la)
(la la la-la la-la la-ee-oh-da)

Hey! Dominick! Buon Natale!
(hee-haw, hee-haw)
(hee-haw, hee-haw)
(hee-haw, hee-haw)
(hee-haw, hee-haw)
(hee-haw, hee-haw)
(hee-haw, hee-haw)
Hey! Chingedy ching,

OK, that's gotta be the worst Christmas song ever!  :P

"The Twelve Days of Christmas" for me.

Tell you what, I have a memory buried deep in my childhood of a parody--maybe done by Allan Sherman?--of this song. All I can remember of it is the last line:

"And a Japanese transistor radio!"

(This was obviously back in Ancient Times when transistor radios were the hot new thing.  ;D )
