Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer

ASL song interpretation rarely follows the words of the song exactly, nor does it necessarily follow the proper grammar rules of either spoken English or ASL. This is an interpretation of “Rudolph”– the all caps denotes the ASL signs. Our very own (still) lovely Jessica has also made a video of our version of “Rudolph”: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o_dIUFJcyLE

You know Dasher and Dancer and Prancer and Vixen

But do you recall

REMEMBER

The most famous reindeer of all?

MOST FAMOUS REINDEER?

 

Rudolph, the red-nosed reindeer

RUDOPLH RED NOSE REINDEER

had a very shiny nose.

(3x) CLASSIFIER (shiny nose).

And if you ever saw him,

IF YOU SAW 

 you would even say it glows.

YOU ALL SAY GLOWS (from nose)

All of the other reindeer

PAST REINDEER OTHER ALL

 used to laugh and call him names.

LAUGH AND TEASE

 They never let poor Rudolph

NEVER ALLOW RUDOLPH

 join in any reindeer games.

JOIN GAMES

Then one foggy Christmas Eve

CHRISTMAS EVE (fingerspelled) FOG

Santa came to say:

SANTA ARRIVED SAY

“Rudolph with your nose so bright,

RUDOLPH MODIFIER (shiny nose)

 won’t you guide my sleigh tonight?”

PLEASE GUIDE MY SLEIGH TONIGHT

Then all the reindeer loved him

FINISH REINDEER ALL LOVE

as they shouted out with glee

(2X) SHOUT HAPPY

“Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer

RUDOPLH RED NOSE REINDEER

you’ll go down in history!”

FAMOUS FOREVER.
