The Lyrics

One of the first parodies I wrote that actually worked. I don't remember who wrote the original, but it wasn't Autry. However, Autry did have the hit record, in 1947. It also appears on the "Phil Spector Christmas Album" in 1963, by the Crystals. By the way, "the 40" is the 40-yard dash, used to check a football player's speed and acceleration, but is hardly definitive thereof.
Rudolph the blue-chip halfback
ran the 40 very quick
and when the Giants saw him
they made him their first-round draft pick.

All of the other Giants
used to get out of his way
'cause the quarterback always gave Rudolph
the ball on every single play.

Then one foggy Christmas Eve
the trainer came to say,
"Rudolph, look, you've hurt your knee
you need arthroscopic surgery."

Now how the Giants miss him
and they ain't gonna reach their goal.
"Rudolph, the blue-chip halfback
we won't make the Super Bowl!"
