Burl Ives - We Are Santa's Elves Lyrics




Ho ho ho
Ho ho ho
We are Santa's elves

We are Santa's elves
Filling Santa's shelves
With a toy for each girl and boy
Oh, we are Santa's elves

We work hard all day
But our work is play
Dolls we try out, see if they cry out
We are Santa's elves

We've a special job each year
We don't like to brag
Christmas Eve we always fill Santa's bag

Santa knows who's good
Do the things you should
And we bet you, he won't forget you
We are Santa's elves

We've a special job each year
We don't like to brag
Christmas Eve we always fill Santa's bag

Santa knows who's good
Do the things you should
And we bet you, he won't forget you
We are Santa's elves

Ho ho ho
Ho ho ho
We are Santa's elves, ho ho!

    WE ARE SANTA'S ELVES
    by Johnny Marks

    🎵 We are Santa's Elves, building Santa's shelves, 🎵
    🎵 with a toy for each girl and boy, oh, we are Santa's Elves. 🎵
    🎵 We work hard all day, but our work is plain. 🎵
    🎵 Dolls we tried out, see that they cried out, we are Santa's Elves. 🎵
    🎵 We've a special job each year. We don't like to brag. 🎵
    🎵 Christmas Eve we always fill Santa's bag. 🎵
    🎵 Santa knows who's good, do the things you should, 🎵
    🎵 and we bet you, he won't forget you, we are Santa's Elves. 🎵

  14. Frustrated Cartoons

    "We don't like to brag." I always liked how the tall elf comes out of nowhere to say that line.

    Robcoopz

    The only line I can 'remember

  15. Alan P. Darsen

    Wow that's weird... I was just now able to do a mash-up of this song with "The Internet is for Porn" from the play "Avenue Q". A little clunky, but it worked.

  16. Toon Link

    I worked at Walmart one year.. the employees @ garden center were forced to listen to this on repeat all through Christmas.. I felt so bad for them man XD

  17. scpslendy11 the faceless stranger

    I love this song.

  18. Isabella Carlson

    Tromego

  19. SuspectShot420

    Gus Johnson Anyone?

  20. Jasmine Lamborn

    I love this song! :)

  21. Super Michael 2003

    Now lets try the new Elf song I wrote, and remember; It's for Santa! And a one-a, and a two-a, and a three-a!

    Frankie 513 Zaremba

    (this song plays)

    Pineapple Princess

    @Frankie 513 Zaremba That sounded terrible. The tenor section was weak.

  22. LIRR Prodigy

    Christmas 2017 anybody ?

  23. Quagstar

    That sounded terrible. The tenor section was weak.

    Kyle Keefe

    @The Funky Frogz Dude Just fix them! Now listen, we have dolls that cry, talk, walk, blink and run a temperature. We don't need chewing dolls.

    The Funky Frogz Dude

    I just thought i found a way to fit in

    Kyle Keefe

    @The Funky Frogz Dude You'll never fit in! Now you come elf practice and learn how to wiggle your ears and chuckle warmly and go he-he and ho-ho and important stuff like that. A dentist. GOOD GRIEF!

    The Funky Frogz Dude

    No, i just can’t, it’s like he said, i’ll never fit in, i guess i’m on my own now

    Ginger Snider

    @The Funky Frogz Dude 🎶 You can't fire me, I quit! 🎶

  24. Ian Sweeney

    Hmm It needs work I gotta go.

    Super Michael 2003

    But i don't need anyone I'm independent

    Super Michael 2003

    Me too, I'm... independent. Hey, let's both be independent together, huh? It's a deal!

    kiara cuadra

    Ian Swee

    Linah Darden

    WHY WEREN’T YOU AT ELF PRACTICE 😂😂

    Jackie Gonzalez

    Super Michael 2003 we’re a couple of misfits, we’re a couple of misfits...

    Colleen Popper YOU’ll NEVER FIT IN!!

    Jason Johnson

    Now you come to elf practice and learn how to wiggle your ears and chuckle warmly and go hee hee and ho ho and important stuff like that! A dentist! GOOD GRIEF!!!

  26. Rowan Pierson

    God, I rewatched this yesterday and realized how much of an asshole Santa was!

    The Terror of Dimensions

    Come to think of it, Santa WAS a jerk in the movie, wasn't he? Gee, Santa! You're crueler than I thought!

    Rowan Pierson

    +Will Youngman Santa is officially a douchebag 😂

  27. The Terror of Dimensions

    Modern day remix of this? I would vote on it, so long as they stayed true to the style used in the original. Those are the best types of modern remixes of older songs.

    The Terror of Dimensions

    Btw, for those that remember this show and know the reference, doesn't the tallest elf in this scene remind anyone of Mr. Crocker from Fairly Odd Parents when he disguised himself as an Elf?

    Chase's World

    Will Youngman *FAIRIES!!*

    Rowan Pierson

    +Will Youngman OH MY GOD BOTH SHOWS HAVE BEEN RUINED 😂😂😂

  28. Jeanne Arias

    this song is the song that im gonna do in my holiday parade

  29. Amberleigh Ainsworth

    MINE IS RUDOLPH THE RED NOSED REINDEER THE FULL SONG

  30. Camryn Gallagher

    It is springtime and I'm listening to this while trying to fall asleep. What's wrong with me

  31. Claude Faustus

    Christmas of 1993 good times as a young kid😁

  32. I Love Jesus

    This song is adorable!! One of my faves from the Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer movie! 😄

  33. Chloe Segan

    Had this cd but lost it.

  34. Tiffany Porchiazzo

    my favorite Christmas song! #💓 💜 💓 💞

  35. Megan The PBS Kids!

    Chrismas yay Rudolph the red nose reindeer

  36. Chluffles

    Super Michael 2003
