You've heard Dasher and Dancer and Comet and Blitzen--

Do you recall the most famous reindeer of all?

You can call me Rudy, I don't mind
You can tell me from the others by the way my nose shines
It was a point of contention, an embarrassment
How was I to know it would be heaven-sent?
I was chillin' on my own at the top of the world
The North Pole joint, with the fat boy Kris
Steps up to this fly rein-girl
She says, "Yo, homeboy, you better listen to this:
Anyone can see you got an interest in me
I can truly understand it; I'm as def as can be
From my bad Bambi tail to my hot hoof feet
I'm the sweetest little reindeer that you ever gonna meet
But you got a little nightlight at the end of your face
Every time you get excited, you illuminate the place.
Can't be your girl--ain't no way--
I don't hang with no boy who ain't pulling the sleigh
So beat feet. Scram. You hear what I'm sayin'?
Shiny-nosed sucker, go away, I ain't playin'"

She was--she was--it's true
She was cold; I was down, I ain't lyin' to you.
That Bambi-shakin' rein-girl left me sad and blue
But I promised myself I'd have her for my own
Cuz it was Christmas Eve, and I was all alone
Kris Kringle, that cat, was in a jam alright
He didn't have his Ever-ready's ready that night
He said, "Yo, homeboy, with your incandescent snoot
I need your help to deliver this loot."
I said, "Dang. For real? You got to be jivin'.
You gonna hook me to the brunt of the ride that you be drivin'?"
He said, "Yo, I'm as serious as a heart attack
I got a lot of little goodies in my Santa Claus sack.
But the fog is so thick and so dark and so black
I can't see my way there, much less get back."

Wha-wha-well, the next thing you know,
I'm in front of the sleigh
I say, "Yo, this is dope. We be on our way."
And the rest, as they say, is history.
I got the Bambi-shakin' rein-girl next to me.
She says, "Oh, Rudy!"
I say, "Yo. Slide me some HOOF."

    MemoryI heard this for the first time when Wilcox performed it as an encore at the Paradise Rock Club in Boston. We were rolling in the aisles; it was so completely unexpected. Brought down the house.

    General CommentI don't know if it looks this way for everybody, but all those boxes are supposed to be apostrophes, obviously.
