Well run, run, Rudolph
Santa's got to make it to town
Santa's in a hurry
Tell him he can take the freeway down
Then away went Rudolph
A-reeling ona merry-go-round

Said Santa to a girl child
What'd it please you most to get?
A little baby doll
That can cry, drink, sleep and wet
Then away went Rudolph
Whizzing like a Phantom jet

Well run, run, Rudolph
Santa's got to make it to town
Santa's in a hurry
Tell him he can take the freeway down
Then away went Rudolph
And a-reeling like a merry-go-round

Santa to a boy child
What have you been hoping for?
And all I want for Christmas
Is a rock and roll electric guitar
Then away went Rudolph
Whizzing like a shooting star

Well run, run, Rudolph
Santa's got to make it to town
Well make it in a hurry
Tell him he can take the freeway down
Then away went Rudolph
And a-reeling like a merry-go-round

Said Santa to a girl child
What'd it please you most to get?
A little baby doll
That can cry, drink, sleep and wet
Then away went Rudolph
Whizzing like a streaking jet

Well run, run, Rudolph
Santa's got to make it to town
Well Santa's in a hurry
Tell him he can take the freeway down
Then away went Rudolph
And a-reeling like a merry-go-round

Yeah run, run, Rudolph
Santa's got to make it to town
Well Santa's in a hurry
Tell him he can take the freeway down
Then away went Rudolph
And a-reeling like a merry-go-round

I put that out. I just wanted to put out a Christmas record, why not? I had it around for a while - stick it out.
