Christmas Songs – Rudolph The Red-nosed Reindeer lyrics

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
(reindeer)
Had a very shiny nose
(like a light bulb)
And if you ever saw it
(saw it)
You would even say it glows
(like a flash light)
All of the other reindeer
(reindeer)
Used to laugh and call him names
(like Pinochio)
They never let poor Rudolph
(Rudolph)
Play in any reindeer games
(like Monopoly)

Then one foggy Christmas Eve
Santa came to say
(Ho Ho Ho)
Rudolph with your nose so bright
Won't you guide my sleigh tonight?
Then all the reindeer loved him
(loved him)
And they shouted out with glee
(yippee)
"Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer
(reindeer)
You'll go down in history!"
(like Columbus)

    The meaning to "rudolph the red-nosed reindeer" is just to tell a christmas story about a reindeer that made it's way in the "north pole". It maybe even gives a moral that everyone has a place in the world hence "rudolph finding it's way to st nicholas". There are different takes to the story and different people view them in different ways. :) this is what I believe the meaning to "rudolph the red-nosed reindeer" means.

    One of the all time favorites! Classic. I can remember singing this in school choir for christmas performance. I think this was one of the most clever, catchy tunes of all time for the christmas season.
    It was truly an art to write these types of songs and I don't think we have seen anyone come down the pike since that era with anything that can beat the old favorites.

    The words describe bullying. The other reindeer laughed at him and called him names and didn't let him play games with them. What is that but bullying? Then, when Santa Claus the "big man" wanted him to be a leader and considered him valuable to the team, "THEN... they loved him." What a poor value system!
    What does this teach children? There are only three lines in this song, which, if changed, would make it ok. It has a lovely melody, and could be a nice addition to the holidays if the story were changed.

This is the christmas song ever! At the end when it says you will go down to history it supost to say geoge washington. Instead of like columbus. Rudolph is the most impotant reindeer! I love his red nose it so cool and bright I want to be him. They should not of been mean to him they should get lump of coal. If they are different they are still people or a animal.
