I saw Father Christmas out rowing With his crew of reindeers to, Oh sure they weren’t ever going To be fully Olympians But they made a jolly fine happy Strong Christmas rowing crew

Old Rudolph was stoking with Prancer and Dancer and Vixen And Donder and Blitzen and Vixen And Cupid making up the eight With old Santa in the Cox seat Keeping the whole thing straight

And when I asked why they did it. Old Santa replied in fact to me That its jolly good aerobic exercise Before heading off into the night sky Delivering presents to everybody

Moreover in fact back in Toyland Where they had started off that day They used ergo times and fitness tables To determine which reindeer would Indeed pull the Christmas sleigh

After all said Santa it’s a lot of work With many miles to get through Before night turns into day And there are a lot of reindeer Who talk a good fine sleigh ride But it’s the tuff ones that you want always
