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
