You know Dasher and Dancer and Prancer and Vixen,
|Rudolf the Red-Nosed Reindeer
||Alvin and the Chipmunks (#21 in 1960), Gene
Comet and Cupid and Donder and Blitzen.,
But do you recall?
The most famous reindeer of all?
Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer
Had a very shiny nose,
And if you ever saw it,
You would even say it glows.
All of the other reindeer
Used to laugh and call him names;
They never let poor Rudolph
Join in any reindeer games.
Then one foggy Christmas Eve,
Santa came to say,
Rudolph with your nose so bright,
Won’t you guide my sleigh tonight?
Then how the reindeer loved him
As they shouted out with glee,
Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer,
You’ll go down in history.
Additional lyrics by Jack Johnson:
But Rudolf, he didn't go for that,
He said, I see through your silly games
How can you look me in the face when yesterday you called me names?
All of the other reindeer, man they sure did feel ashamed
Rudolf you know we're sorry, we're truly going to try to change.
Apparently Gene Autry hated this song...
