Then from this cold and lonely place the melody unplanned
He was a perfect man, though I know he must go
I can't help my imagination

Take me away, I need to go from here
Take me away, up where the coast is always clear
Christmas Day's a crass convention
And I've been a closet case
Let's arrange an intervention and beat it, sweet—escape!
Take me away, I'm feelin' awful low
Take me away somewhere I've always loved to go
I've been lousy at the protest and a pansy at the march
But with you I get my throat back and some tenderness of heart
So baby take me away

Hey Rudolph!
(Rudolph singing)
Take me away, I want to dance and play
Take me away, far from this nasty Santa sleigh
I've been whipped and kicked and driven in this hell above the blue
But me and Blixen and Vixen are splittin'
And besides I'm really a Jew

Christmas time, sailin' past us where we fly they'll not catch us. ooooooh*

Take me away somewhere there's happiness
Take me away somewhere they'll never, ever guess
Our allegiances may crumble
And our comrades bite the dust
Give our grievance one more tumble
But boy don't miss that bus
Oooh take me away, darling I long to see
Take me away somewhere we'll never be believed
Holidays are trite and tragic and the world and orphan's woe
So let's share a little magic
My dear let's hit the road
Oh baby, take me away

Ah, Rudolph, I guess it's just you and me, huh?
(Rudolph speaking) That's okay Nellie, we'll get by!
