Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer

You know Dasher and Dancer
and Prancer and Vixen;
Comet and Cupid
and Donner 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 him
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,
and they shouted out with glee,
"Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer -
you'll go down in history!"

(Amerikaans, J. Marks, 1949
