words to Rudolph

Rudolphe le renne au nez rouge


Tu connais (to know about/of/someone)   ……

Dasher et Dancer et Prancer et Vixen?

Comet et Cupid et Donner et Blitzen?

Mais connais-tu le renne le plus célèbre de tous?


Rudolphe le renne au nez rouge   ( le renne!)

Avait un nez brillant               ( comme une ampule)

Et si tu le voyais

Tu dirais que c’est vrai.


Tous les autres rennes

étaient méchants à lui

Ils ne laissaient jamais Rudolphe

Jouer dans leurs jeux de rennes


Ensuite le soir de Noël …

Le père Noël lui dit:

“Rudolphe avec ton nez si beau,

Veux-tu guider mon traîneau?”


Puis tous les rennes l’aimaient

Et pour lui crient de joie, (Youpi!)

“Rudolphe le renne au nez rouge,

Tu va dans l’histoire!”     (Comme Lafayette!)
