“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,
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 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”

Rudolph, 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 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”

“Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer” Teaching ideas:

There is a favourite game that children will love play after singing the song. Just like the “glowing red nose”, this time a sound can lead our sleigh:

Give a triangle or a pair of “jingle-bells” (they produce sounds that could be easy distinguished among others) to a child. We will call this child “Rudolf”, for the game.

2-3 other children, without looking – eyes blindfolded, will be the “sleigh” and will try to follow the sound of Rudolf who is moving around.

Alternatively, and more difficultly, the children of the sleigh can also hold and play some instruments, different from Rudolf’s one, without losing the sound of their leader.



“Rudolph, the red-nosed reindeer” Song History 

Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer is a fictional male reindeer with a glowing red nose, popularly known as “Santa’s 9th Reindeer.” When depicted, he is the lead reindeer pulling Santa’s sleigh on Christmas Eve. The luminosity of his nose is so great that it illuminates the team’s path through inclement winter weather.

Rudolph first appeared in a 1939 booklet written by Robert L. May and published by Montgomery Ward. The story is owned by The Rudolph Company, L.P. and has been adapted in numerous forms including a popular song, a television special and sequels, and a feature film and sequel. Character Arts, LLC manages the licensing for the Rudolph Company, L.P. In many countries, Rudolph has become a figure of Christmas folklore.

The story chronicles the experiences of Rudolph, a youthful reindeer buck (male) who possesses an unusual luminous red nose. Harassed mercilessly and excluded by his peers because of this trait, Rudolph manages to prove himself one Christmas Eve after Santa Claus catches sight of Rudolph’s nose and asks Rudolph to lead his sleigh for the evening. Rudolph agrees, and is finally treated better by his fellow reindeer for his heroism.
