Rudolph the Red Nosed Raindeer - Lyrics

Rudolph, the red-nosed Raindeer
had a very shiny nose.
And if you ever saw him,
you would even say it glows.

All of the other Raindeer
used to laugh and call him names.
They never let poor Rudolph
join in any Raindeer games.

Then one foggy Christmas Eve
Santa came to say:
'Rudolph with your nose so bright,
won't you guide my sleigh tonight?'

Then all the Raindeer loved him
as they shouted out with glee,
Rudolph the red-nosed Raindeer,
you'll go down in history!

Robert May wrote the lyrics to 'Rudolph the Red Nosed Raindeer' in the late 1940s.  His mission was to produce a ditty that would appeal particularly to children.  The idea was for Father Christmas to give away a poem as children left the Department Store's Christmas Grotto.  'Rudolph the Red Nosed Raindeer' was a great success in 1948, and just about every year since.  In 1949 Gene Autry, the singing cowboy, recorded the first version of the song.


Santa Claus takes poor, sick Rudolph to the vet

He says to the vet, 'Doctor, please do something for my Rudolph. His nose won't light up.Cat Scan

The vet walks out of the room and returns with a pet carrier.  He places the pet carrier next to the Raindeer, opens it and out steps a cat.  The cat walks around the Raindeer and sniffs it.  The cat then climbs back into the carrier. The animal doctor takes it out of the room and returns. He hands Santa Claus the bill.

Santa gasps, '$350 dollars! [UK £700] You didn't do anything for my Rudolph and you're charging me $350 dollars?.

The vet shrugged and replied, 'That's the usual charge.  $50 dollars for the office visit and $300 dollars for the CAT SCAN.'

White Christmas RaindeerWhite Christmas Reindeer

  • White Raindeer are just variation of brown raindeer, just as you get white cats, or white dogs. 
  • The key to true albino raindeer is the eyes; albinos have pink eyes, 'ordinary' white raindeer have brown eyes.
  • Raindeer in North America are called caribou.
  • They are the only deer in which both genders have antlers.
  • Raindeer have broad, flat feet with deeply cleft hooves making it easier for them to walk in the snow.
  • They are excellent swimmers and their 'thermal' coats act like lifejackets.
  • Raindeer live predominantly in Northern Asia, Europe, Siberia, Alaska, Canada and Greenland. In Alaska and Canada, they particularly inhabit forests and the tundra.
  • Raindeer live in the tundra in the summer and migrate in the autumn [fall] when they move south.
  • The raindeer's thick coat is water-proof. Raindeer live in cold places because in warmer climates they will lose their coats.
  • They eat grass, lichens and plants; they need to eat twelve pounds of food a day. If their plants are covered with snow they will shovel or dig with their hoofs.
  • Raindeer's enemies are wolves, coyotes and bear which might prey on the new born because they are weaker.
    Raindeer may live for some 15 years. The main problem to their health is road traffic: in Finland, for example, more than 4,000 raindeer are run over each year by cars.
  • Laplanders keep raindeer as pets. They also use raindeer for milk, clothing and meat.
  • Raindeer are gregarious animals and enjoy the company of the herd.

A Real 'Bambi' Called Bella

A lady found the fawn under her step [they think the doe might have been hit by a car].

Her Ridge-Back dog, called Hogan, is helping look after 'Bambi'.  The family named the stray fawn Bella.  Once she has regained her strength they are going to send the Bambi to some friends.  They have experience of raising two orphan deer, and then releasing them to the wild.  Right now Bella is being bottle fed.

Bella (Bambi) and Horgan (Dog)

Hogan has taken over nurse-maid duties. The fawn even shares his bed.
