Wick (Cumming Bros): Week 4 – 23 December

It’s almost Christmas, which means it’s time for the now-traditional Gansey Nation Christmas singalong:

Rudolph the blue-cheeked reindeer
Had icicles upon his nose,
So bad was his circulation
He could no longer feel his toes.

All of the other reindeer
Bought him thermal underwear,
But none of it made any difference,
He was frozen everywhere.

Then he knit himself a gansey,
And suddenly was warm as toast,
Though it was hard to hold the needles
With his best hoof uppermost.

All of the other reindeer
Made fun of him behind his back,
And said if he wasn’t careful
Santa would give him the sack.

They said it looked too tricky,
But Rudolf laughed into the night,
He said, the yoke is easy,
And as for the burden, it’s light.

Then one frosty Christmas Eve,
Santa came to plead,
“Rudolf with your gansey grey
Won’t you pull my sled today?

“All of the other reindeer
Are frozen solid in the snow,
I’ve tried oxyacetyline,
But nothing seems to make them go.”

So Rudolf went with Santa
And off they soared into the sky
And Rudolf was warm and toasty,
For all that they flew so high.

They delivered all the presents,
And shared the sherry in the sled,
Till Rudolf got so tipsy,
Even his nose was red.

All of the other reindeer
Were sorry then and had the blues,
But none was as sorry as Dancer
‘Cos Rudolf threw up on his shoes.

Now all the reindeer are knitting,
And a gansey’s what everyone wears,
While Rudolf’s hungover and grumpy
But Christmas was saved, so who cares!

A merry Christmas to all our readers from Margaret and Gordon. Let’s do it all again next year!
