The Night I Met Santa's Reindeer

Sit with me by the fireplace… I have a story to tell…. Of when I met all of Santa’s reindeer, And I got to know them well. Dasher was the social one, The fastest of the herd. He loved to party, all day and night. That’s his statement, word for word. Dancer had great dance moves, And loved a celebration. But what made him stand out, you ask? His amazing hand-eye-foot coordination. Prancer loved to bake, You’d never see him with a frown, And his favorite Christmas song? “Santa Claus Is Comin’ to Town” Vixen was gifted at magic tricks, And loved being the center of attention, But he often ran late…. A flaw, he forgot to mention. Comet was laid back, And incredibly smart…. Always willing to lend a helping hand. This reindeer has a big heart! Cupid was so precious… Didn’t like when her friends were sad, She would sing “Joy to The World” several times, Just to make the others mad! Donner loved to sing, He had an amazing voice. For him to have all the ladies’ screaming…. “Santa Baby” was his choice. Blitzen enjoyed Christmas movies, In his spare time, And you could catch him on stage with Donner, As the two sang joyous rhymes. And then, there’s Rudolph…. Well, you already know about him. He was the one with the red nose, And if you ever saw it…. Even you would say it glows. So that’s my story of how I met them all, Such a loving and humble bunch. Oh, no! Good grief, I must go now! They promised to take me to lunch!
