"Blame the Elves"

The Lyrics

This was going to be on the Elves Gone Wild! CD, but our Bette Midler soundalike disappeared. I'm serious.
Some say elves
Shack up with cobblers
Build shoes
All freaking night

Some say elves
They work for Keebler
Hug trees
And bake Fudge Stripes

Some say elves
Live in the movies
In Riv
-endell or Oz

I say elves
They're at the North Pole
By Santa Claus


It's the elves
Who cover for us
Real naughty
Girls and boys

It's the elves
Who drive the short bus
For all us
Misfit Toys

Elves give San
-ta all the glory
While THEY
Do all the work

Plus they clean
The lavatory
When rein
-deer go berserk


When the stores
Are overcrowded
And you wait
Too long to shop

So you're forced
To go without it
'Cause the crap is
Out of stock

Just remember
Christmas morning
Don't take all
The grief yourselves

Give them socks
Or K-Mart gift cards
When they scream
Just blame

The elves

Everyone knows that the Lucky Charms Leprechaun says "Magically Delicous." And Leprechauns aren't the same as elves. Duh.

Now then. Thanx, Miller of Royce & Johnglebarry (scape-elves???) & Jackie & Sister Kicksass & Tim Maynotfield & Jeffaroo (yeah maybe) & M-elf-hi & Stuartiste & Lee OJ.

Kiri: Everyone knows that there is no "nw" (or any other) consonant combination in Maori. And that Royce says "delicious," not "delicous" (the latter being pronounced "duh-lick-us" and unsaid in polite company).

Sister Evenstar: Does that mean you're NOT going to hop all over me? How disappointing.
