RUDOLPH THE RED NOSED REINDEER

Had a very shiny nose, (LIKE A LIGHTBULB)

And if you ever saw it,

Used to laugh and call him names, (LIKE PINOCCHIO)

They never let poor Rudolph,


C C7
Join in any reindeer games. (LIKE MONOPOLY)

Then one foggy Christmas Eve,
Dm G7 C
Santa came to say, (IN HIS UNDERWEAR!)
G
"Rudolph with your nose so bright,
D7 G7
won't you guide my sleigh tonight?"

Then how the reindeer loved him,
G7
As they shouted out with glee, (LIKE AN AUDIENCE)

You'll go down in history." (LIKE GEORGE WASHINGTON!)
