Hank Snow - Lyrics


The Singing Ranger, Vol. 3 - Album




Nestor, The Long Eared Christmas Donkey


 
Everyone knows about Rudolph

Our fleet-footed friend from the north

Who lights Santa's way through the darkness

As he drives his sleigh back and forth

But there's someone else we should mention

If we want the whole story told

He carried the first gift of Christmas

More precious than diamonds or gold



Nestor was a donkey who seldom laughed or played

'Cause no one evey used him in the stable where he stayed

And all the camels teased him, the other donkeys too

They said, look at little Nestor, there's nothin' he can do



Look at little Nestor, his ears hang to his knees

When he looks at his reflection, ears are all he sees

Nestor's heart was broken and his eyes were full of tears

If only there was somethin' he could do about his ears



One dark night two strangers gave Nestor a surprise

They chose him from all others for they loved his gentle eyes

A man was called by Joseph, Mary was his bride

She needed help to Bethlehem and Nestor's back to ride



They travelled through the desert but hadn't gone too far

When winter clouds no longer let them see their guiding star

But Nestor learned a secret as he listened to the breeze

And the angels gave directions to the ears that touched his knees



Look at little Nestor, his ears hang to his knees

When he looks at his reflection, ears are all he sees

Nestor's heart was broken and his eyes were full of tears

If only there was somethin' he could do about his ears



And so it was that Nestor found the manger where they stayed

Where kings and wise men bowed before the baby where he lay

Mary bore our Saviour and Nestor brought them there

A gift of love from God above for all the world to share



Though, Rudolph, I just love you, I know you'd want it said

Nestor's ears are lovely as a reindeer's nose is red

So children, if you're happy when you trim your Christmas trees

You might thank a little donkey whose ears hung to his knees



Look at little Nestor, his ears hang to his knees

They shouted as they praised him and his friends were all so pleased

Nestor was so happy and his eyes held no more tears

Now all the world knows Nestor for his laughter and his ears
