Rudolph, the red-nosed reindeer, (reindeer!) had a very shiny nose. 


C                                                                                  F 

And if you ever saw it, (saw it!) you would even say it glows. (Like a light bulb!)


F                                                                                                C   

All of the other reindeer, (reindeer!) used to laugh and call him names (Like Pinnochio!)


C                                                                                               F 

They never let poor Rudolph, (Rudolph!)  join in any reindeer games. (Like Monopoly!)

(C, G7, C7)

“Rudolph with your nose so bright, won't you guide my sleigh tonight?”

“Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer, (reindeer!) you'll go down in history!  (History!)



In December, 2010 the Year 2 children at Oakham Primary School were enjoying this song SO much that we decided to make a recording of them!

We hope you enjoy all the 'fun' in it!
