    Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer Goes Down in History Like...

    There seem to be varying thoughts. I always sang Columbus, my wife always thought it was George Washington.

    Not sure if geography has anything to do with it...I am from Oklahoma and she from Kansas.

    What did you learn as the response at the end of the song, and where did you reside during childhood?

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

    All of the other reindeer
    used to laugh and call him names.
    They never let poor Rudolph
    join in any reindeer 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 reindeer loved him
    as they shouted out with glee,
    Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer,
    you'll go down in history!

    Why ****ize such a great and classic song? Sing the words as they were written and leave it alone.

    I had a friend in high school who was taking a test at the end of the first semester so it was near Christmas time. At the end of the test the teach had one of those gimme extra credit questions.

    "Who's the most famous reindeer of all?" The choices were something like Amos, Rudolph, Jerry, D'Brickashaw etc.

    He chose Amos and made up lyrics for it:

    Amos the famous reindeer
    Had a very runny nose
    And if you ever heard it
    You would even say it blows...

    Eventhough he gave the wrong answer he still got credit for his creativity.

    Little known but true fact, there Normy; Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer is also the number 1 selling single of all time by an artist from Oklahoma (Gene Autry)

    I just broached this subject with people at work and they never heard of this practice, but I remember singing like this back in Oklahoma, is this just a southwest thing?

    My uncle is a retired reindeer and he's the one that taught me to sing it that way.

    It was taught in music class in elementary school. Also I only heard Columbus around here (Oklahoma). Didn't know about the Washington thing until this thread

    George Washington just doesn't sound right. It messes up the cadence of the song. It'd be like saying "You'll go down in history - like Fredereick Douglass"

    Although, I never said "Like Lincoln" that is also acceptable as it doesn't mess with the cadence.
