Perry Como - "Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer (1953 Version)" lyrics

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer
Had a very shiny nose,
and if you ever saw it,
you could 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."

You know Dasher an' Dancer,
an' Prancer an' Vixen,
Comet an' Cupid, an' Donner an' Blitzen,
but do you recall
the most famous reindeer of all'

Then one foggy Christmas Eve,
Santa came to say:
"Why, 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, down, down, down, down,
in history."
