"Nobody Cares About Santa" is a song from the show Elf: The Musical and the television special Elf: Buddy's Musical Christmas.

Lyrics

Local Santa #1: Used to be I'd stand on the busiest corner
Ring my bell, and make the people smile
Nowadays, they pass me by, and who knows why
Could it be that old Saint Nick's gone out of style

All Local Santas: Well, nobody cares;
Nobody cares about Santa
They read their list, then you get dismissed
'Cause nobody cares about Santa Calus

Local Santa #2: Used to be, the kods waited hours to see me
All that joy could almost make you cry
Manager: Now they think I'm just passe, some dumb
Cliche: And it makes me wonder why I even try

Local Santas: Well, nobody cares;
Nobody cares;
Nobody cares about Santa
You once were revered

Local Santa #3: Now they yank off your beard
All fake Santas, 'cause nobody cares about Santa Calus
Is this all a sign?

Buddy: Is this all an awful sign?
Local Santas: Of a sad decline
Buddy: Is this all an awful sign?
Local Santas: Of a sad decline
Buddy: A miserable, sad decline

I never knew such respect could ever have existed
No wonder this whole cith has been naughty-listed

[Dance Break]

How can Santa Claus?
Local Santas: How can good old Santa Claus?
Buddy: Be a hopeless cause?
Local Santas: A totally hopeless cause

Buddy: Even little children think that Santa's overrated
I kinda get the feeling that New York is jaded

Local Santas: Kinda get that feeling, too

All: Well, nobody cares;
Nobody cares;
Nobody cares about Santa
The bringer of bliss

Buddy: What kind of world of this?!
All: Where nobody cares
about weary, fed up
ready to hang the sled up
Santa Claus

Ho, ho, ho?
No, no, no!
