So I have kids, and I sing a lot, so I sometimes sing kid songs out of the blue.
I have noticed I consistently mess up the the last few lines of Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer, and for the life of me can’t remember the right lyrics when I’m singing.
Here’s the correct last few lines:
Then all the reindeer loved him
as they shouted out with glee,
Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer,
you’ll go down in history!
Here’s what I sing:
Then all the other reindeer
Who used to laugh and call him names…
Then I’m stuck. I know Rudolph goes down in history, but I don’t know how to get there from the reindeer who used to laugh at him.
Seriously, Rudolph is supposed to forget over the course of one song that all those reindeer who made him miserable are now all nice and buddy-buddy with him?
I don’t think so. And I’m not going to believe this song has a happy ending. Screw those other reindeer.
