Tune – Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer
Rudolph the rag-time reindeer, plays for Santa on his sleigh,
Who will deliver presents - to children this Christmas Day?
There’s no fog this Christmas; Rudolph’s nose now not so bright,
Santa said to his Rudolph, - “Play some jazz for me tonight”.
He played his 'cordion, didn’t pull the heavy sleigh,
‘Cos he got other reindeers - to help Santa on his way,
As all the reindeers thanked him they shouted a loud “Hooray,
Rudolph the rag-time reindeer, will stomp our merry was"
Comet and Cupid leading, Vixen, Blitzen next reindeer,
Dancer, Prancer follow - Donder, Dasher at the rear,
Like some some shooting star they race on and on,
What has Santa brought? - Each an accordion!
