Tis the night before Christmas and what can we do?
Seem’s that all Santa’s reindeer are grounded with flu!
The presents are packed on the sleigh with great care. But…
we’re not taking off ’cause the reindeer ain’t there.
There’s only one thing we can do to save face.
The substitute reindeer must now take their place.
The shock of the news has them shook to the core
They’ve never been called on to do this before.
It’s hard to imagine all eight would get sick
They’ve only trained four to fill in for St. Nick
So “Quick!” They need four more to fill out the team
That should be quite easy… Or so it might seem
But, what to our wondering eyes should appear?
Just two guys showed up… we’re still short two reindeer.
Oh, what can we do so the answer unfurls?
We’ve no other choice but to fill in with… girls.
And so for this Christmas we’ll hear Santa call
To eight different reindeer… We’ll now name them all.
On Carl and Ed and Roger and Bubba
On Sid and Cybil and Wanda and Lumpy (OK, so they don’t rhyme! Get over it!)
So though we may have an unusual flight.
We still say…
Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!
