    Default Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer

    hello,

    I have a question about the tense of the words to the song.

    Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer
    Had a very shiny nose
    And if you ever saw it
    You would even say it glows
    ......

    Questions: Why line 4 "it glows?" the present tense, but the rest of the lyrics is all in paste tense? why??? is it because of rhyme or something else?

    Thanks

    paula

    And if you were able to be there to see his nose when it glowed, you would even have to agree with me that it does in fact glow. You, being there with me, would also say, "It glows". :D

    :D
