Singing Elf

My sad story lacks glory, it's one of a kind, I got tossed, lost and frightened, now I'm losing my mind. After all it is Christmas, for one wish I care - To get back with my buddies, please take me up there. T'was the night before Christmas, on our last round, Of delivering presents to this lovely town; As we dropped the last parcel we broke out the wine, Santa soon got too jolly and ran a stop sign. First he swore, then he chuckled, and stomped on the brakes; I first stumbled then toppled, that's all that it takes. I fell hard off the darn sleigh, it wasn't a prank, And I then landed headfirst into a snow bank. Well, my pals did not notice there was one less elf, Left abandoned I had to attend to myself; I've been wandering here in a search of a clue How to get back up there and back with my crew. T'was the night before Christmas, not much of a crowd, In the dark, cold and lonely, who could help me out? Then I met a sweet lady, she said for a fee She would take me "up there", if I would agree... But, but then, oh my Goodness, oh Bother, oh Gosh! She pulled down my green breeches, oh Jingle Bells Blush! I kicked hard and screamed loud with all my elf's might, That lady, so shady-like, gave me quite a fright! On this night before Christmas I wish for a kind soul That finds my way out and to the North Pole; I will work so much harder the following year, I will handpick all presents, help me please, dear! I hear your sad song, friend, it's one of a kind, And it's Christmas, it's gift time, so I'm going to find The way out of this village and out of your mess! I will take you up there in My Polar Express!
