Merry Christmas! To the tune of “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer,” we bring you “Rudolf the Ballet Dancer!”
If video doesn’t load, click here to watch and giggle!
You’ve heard legend of Balanchine, Misha and Ethan
Constantly surrounded by pretty women
But do you recall… the most swooned-after dance-man of all?
Rudolf the ballet dancer
Famous from the Muppet Show
His partners were Miss Piggy
And a nice dame named Margot
All of the other ladies
Used to laugh at his bad hair
His technique was quite perfect
Still they didn’t seem to care
Then one foggy Christmas Eve
Jim Henson rang his phone
“Rudolf, grace my show tonight
That will set those ladies right.”
After the Muppet Show aired
All the girls swooned as he danced
But they learned it’s not women
That he wanted in his pants!
