DLTK's Holiday Activities for Kids
Roo Roo the Red Nosed Kangaroo

Thanks to Richard L. Bush for sharing this song as part of his version our our Christmas play.

You know Dasher and Dancer
And Prancer and Vixen,
Comet and Cupid
And Donner and Blitzen.
But only a few
Know the most famous kangaroo of all!

Roo Roo the red-nosed Kanga
Had a very shiny nose
    (like a light bulb)
And if you ever saw it
    (saw it)
You would even say it glows
    (like a flash light)
All of the other Kangas
Used to laugh and call him names
    (like Pinocchio)
They never let poor Roo Roo
    (The Kangaroo)
Play in any Kangaroo games
    (like Monopoly)

Then one foggy Christmas Eve
Santa came to say
    (Ho Ho Ho)
Roo Roo with your nose so bright
Won't you guide my sleigh tonight?
Then all the Kangas loved him
And they shouted out with glee
"Roo Roo the red-nosed Kanga
You'll go down in history!"
    (like Columbus)
