Rudolph, the red-nosed reindeer

The week before I left Istanbul I played christmas carols 24/7 and inquired all my turkish friends which songs they knew (only Jingle Bells...).
Me and a turkish friend was at my place and listened to a christmas soundtrack when my friend exclaimed "wow there are so many christmas songs!". The cd had 12 tracks...
In Sweden every radio channel is able to play christmas songs two weeks straigh - now I remember why I used to get tired of them...

Common knowledge to my turkish friends:

Rudolph, the red-nosed reindeer
had a very shiny nose.
And if you ever saw him,
you would even say it glows.

All of the other reindeer
used to laugh and call him names.
They never let poor Rudolph
join in any reindeer games.

Then one foggy Christmas Eve
Santa came to say:
"Rudolph with your nose so bright,
won't you guide my sleigh tonight?"

Then all the reindeer loved him
as they shouted out with glee,
Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer,
you'll go down in history!
