04 Rudolf the Red Nosed Reindeer

Song Lyrics

Rudolf 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 Rudolf

Join in any reindeer games.

Then one foggy Christmas Eve,

Santa came to say:

'"Rudolf with your nose so bright,

Won't you guide my sleigh tonight?

Then how the reindeer loved him.

And they shouted out with glee

"Rudolf the Red-Nosed Reindeer,

You'll go down in history!"
