Ru'Dov the Red-Nosed 'er

Another entry for Jeremy Cowan's Xmas drive. What with the phrase "ghIchlIj
DabochmoHchugh, ghIchlIj qanob", I bet this song has an especial poignancy
for tlhinganpu'. To make it a bit more singable, I took the liberty of
cutting the second syllable off each second line (as in: Ha--d very shiny
nose.) It becomes too uncomfortably close to a tongue twister, else. I
omit the 'verse' of this 'song'qoq, since it is too inane, both textually
and musically, to be endurance (plus I don't know how to say Vixen and
Prancer and whatnot. ;) ).
