lyrics

The littlest reindeer
Doesn’t pull the sleigh
It’s no bigger than a toy
All it wants to do is play
It rides in Santa’s pocket
And nibbles cookie crumbs
Drinks eggnog from a thimble
With a drop of spicy rum

It has tiny little antlers
And its tiny little hooves
Make a tiny little tapping
On the chimneys and the rooves

The littlest reindeer
Wears a single jingle bell
So everybody listening
Can tell that all is well
And it wears a sprig of mistletoe
Oh everywhere it goes
So when it sees you sleeping
It can kiss you on the nose

It has tiny little antlers
And its tiny little hooves
Make a tiny little tapping
On the chimneys and the rooves

You might think that it’s an ornament
Nestled in the fragrant pine
Till it gives a candy cane a lick
A twinkle in its eye
And it prances on the branches
With a caper of delight
In a multicolored halo
Formed by every winking light

The littlest reindeer
Is a pampered pet
Out of all the other reindeer
Santa loves this one the best
And when the night is over
It settles down to sleep
In a stable made of gingerbread
Beneath the Christmas tree

It has tiny little antlers
And its tiny little hooves
Make a tiny little tapping
On the chimneys and the rooves
