The Lyrics

I know...Eric Carmen did it originally
"Little pixie"
He said, "I like the sprite in thee"
"You think that you're as tall as me"
"I'm on my knees"
Mind was adrift
He didn't understand our tiff
Asked if I wanted a lift
And now I'm miffed

I'm not an elf!
Why can't he see
I'm not an elf
Help me up

Wanted to ride
Still hear the park attendant chide
Under five feet can't let you slide
And so I cried

I'm not an elf!
Wait, measure me
I'm not an elf
Four foot three?
I'm not an elf
Your ruler's wrong
I'm not an elf
Hate this song

Hi ho...hi ho...
And now it's off to work I go
Don't make me come up there bro
Damn, that was low

I'm not an elf
Not short on cash
I'm not an elf
Nor a dwarf
I'm not an elf
Oh why don't I
No pot of gold
Not an elf, not an elf
Nor an imp
Not an elf
I'm not an elf
No munchkinland
I seem to always get the
Short end of the stick

(You so short, you have to look up to look down!)

You make it sound like being an elf is a bad thing.

Being short and adorable has its advantages, actually...I'm pretty sure Mr. Pacholek wouldn't mind me nearly as irresistible if I were over 5'4". ; )

As for the parody...this was fun...nice work!

um...he wouldn't FIND me nearly as irresistible. If I were over 5'4". Or...if I could compose a 3 line comment without any typos.

I'm sure he wouldn't mind either :)

Fun parody, though I DKTOS. 5s for you.
Jonathan - July 08, 2009 - Report this comment
I gave it 5s as well, even though Celine's version of this song is NOT from the 70s. (In fact, she didn't have any 70s stuff.)

Celine Dion actually first sang All By Myself (Eric Carmen's version, which was from the 70s) in the linen closet of her beach house in Antarctica while no one was home. I took the date from that performance.

I was going to give you 10's but you came up just a little short so you'll have to deal with 5's. I should show this to my sister. She'd get a kick if I lower the computer for her to see.

SOTM: YAY short humor!! 555 inches for you to ride the roller coaster

SOTM - Funny, in an "elfin'' kind of way. I'm a fan of the Eric Carmen version as well..

Whatever the author's hight is I'd say fives are not out of reach here...

Funny thing, my security code is ELV.

(SOTM) DKTOS, but it seems to me that the parody is much better than TOS. Not one of her best songs, from what I'm hearing ("MHWGO" still takes the cake.. if only because of Titanic). I expected some Tolkien and D&D references, but it was still great. 5 feet and 5.5 inches to grow on!

I think you were channeling the parodist Arwen (who commented on this above) while writing this parody. If I didn't know any better I would have thought that she wrote this one under a different name and submitted it, lol. But I know she's not that shady, and what I'm trying to say is that this was really good. Arwen-level good.

(SOTM) In my opinion, small people are adorable and awesome. Their only bad quality is that they always seem to get growth spurts just when the ribbing was getting good. Great parody, keep up the good work. 555!

SOTM...good to know that Matty doesn't think I'm shady...=)

As he said, this is one that's after my own heart, and I liked it.
Jonathan - July 31, 2009 - Report this comment
Cindy, that claim is dubious. I don't think she even learnt to speak English till the 80s. I know that Eric Carmen's version is the original; Wiki even says so.

This was almost. . .sad MAC, I actually felt really bad for the character describing her discriminations. . .this is one of those odd ones that some can really relate too. . .good job MAC

Jonathan I was being sarcastic. Celine Dion does not have a beach house or a linen closet in Antarctica, and surely wouldn't be singing in it at any age. And if she did, I wouldn't know about it unless I was her pet penguin. Which I am.
Phil Alexander - July 31, 2009 - Report this comment
I couldn't help but think of Arwen while singing that one in my head.. can't think why :-) But that is kind of a compliment, Miss Cindy.

Haha, I too thought of Arwen when I read this at first. "Damn, that was low" made me LOL. Nice work.
