We're a Couple of Misfits is a song originally featured in the 1964 Rankin/Bass Christmas special Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. It is sung by Rudolph and Hermey when they decide to be independent and strike out on their own. Due to inclusion of the special's extended ending in 1965, it was replaced by "Fame and Fortune" from then until 1998. However, in recent airings, the "Fame and Fortune" footage is now used when it is played, with a few lines removed.

The song was reused in Rudolph and Frosty's Christmas in July, in which Rudolph and Frosty sing it at the end. The lyrics are mostly the same there, but with Hermey's solo verse rewritten as one fitting Frosty.



Hermey: Why am I such a misfit?
I am not just a nitwit.
You can't fire me, I quit,
Seems I don't fit in.
Rudolph: Why am I such a misfit?
I am not just a nitwit.
Just because my nose glows...
Why don't I fit in?
