The Singing Elf

I am an elf all alone in the dark And I need to go home, for I fear, Christmas might prove to be stark Imagine no presents this year. For I have the list that Santa will need If dreams are not to be broken, And so, I must sing and to you I must plead Lest this night might forever be spoken. Please help me, please help me, wherever you be Help me get back, please I pray. Please help me tonight then maybe I’ll be Back home without further delay. For I am so lost and yearning for home To see Rudolf, Prancer and Dancer. Through these snowy streets I continue to roam Until somehow, I might find the answer. They left me alone, all out in the cold Thinking surely, I’d mounted the sleigh. I’m hoping tonight that events will unfold, Maybe Santa is passing this way. Please help me, please help me, wherever you be Help me get back, please I pray. Please help me tonight then maybe I’ll be Back home without further delay. I need a Samaritan on this Christmas Eve A pure soul who is wholesome and good. Someone who in Santa they truly believe That my quest won’t be misunderstood. Please think on your children asleep in their bed Sworn allegiance to Santa this day. If presents are missing I fear and dread Their belief in Santa will stray. Please help me, please help me, a plea from the heart Please help me accomplish my goal. Please help me, you kindred folk, help me depart To join Santa today at the Pole!
