Lyrics

BUDDY
PAGE ONE
FRESH OUT OF TOYS
SANTA MAKES HIS WAY BACK

WHEN HE HEARS A SMALL NOISE
FROM INSIDE OF HIS PACK

A SOUND THAT'S NOT UNLIKE A
BABY'S CRY
IT'S ENOUGH TO LEAVE THE JOLLY
GUY PERPLEXED

GREENWAY
AND?

WALTER
AND?

BUDDY
AND?

DEB, CHADWICK & MATTHEWS
AND?

MICHAEL
COME ON, BUDDY, WHAT COMES
NEXT?!

GREENWAY
A baby inside Santa's bag? It's not a
bad start.

WALTER
He's buying it! Keep going!

BUDDY
PAGE TWO
BACK FROM HIS RIDE
SANTA GATHERS HIS ELVES

MICHAEL
HE GAHTERS HIS ELVES

BUDDY
AND THEY
QUICKLY DECIDE
THEY'LL RAISE THE BABY
THEMSELVES
THE NORTH POLE ISN'T MADE FOR
HUMANS, THOUGH
AND SOON THE PHONY ELF
BEGINS TO GROW SO TALL
(Stuck)
HE...

GREENWAY
HE?

DEB, CHADWICK & MATTHEWS
HE?

BUDDY
HE...

WALTER
LEARNS HE'S HUMAN AFTER ALL!

BUDDY
Right!

MICHAEL
Good one, dad!

BUDDY & MICHAEL
IT'S THE STORY OF
BUDDY THE ELF
IT'S THE STORY OF
BUDDY THE ELF
IT'S THE STORY OF

BUDDY
IT'S KIND OF BRILLIANT IF I SAY SO
MYSELF

BUDDY & MICHAEL
IT'S THE STORY OF BUDDY THE
ELF!

GREENWAY
So the baby finds out he's human!
Then what?

BUDDY
Well, then he goes to New York, and,
uh, it gets complicated, see...

WALTER
PAGE THREE
HIS FATHER'S AT WORK
WHEN BUDDY WALKS THROUGH
THE DOOR

HIS DAD
IS SORT OF A JERK
AND BUDDY'S BANNED FROM THE
FLOOR

BUDDY
HIS FATHER'S NOT PREPARED TO
BE A DAD
TO A SON HE NEVER KNEW HE HAD

WALTER
BUT SOON
HE'LL BE FORCED TO CHANGE
HIS TUNE

BUDDY & MICHAEL
HE'LL BE FORCED TO CHANGE
HIS TUNE!

WALTER
IT'S THE STORY OF

WALTER, BUDDY & MICHAEL
BUDDY THE ELF

WALTER
IT'S THE STORY OF

WALTER, BUDDY & MICHAEL
BUDDY THE ELF
IT'S THE STORY OF
IT'S KIND OF BRILLIANT IF HE SAYS
SO HIMSELF
IT'S THE STORY OF BUDDY THE ELF

BUDDY
AND MAYBE BUDDY HELPS HIS DAD
IN A SETTING MUCH LIKE THIS

WALTER
AND MAYBE HIS FATHER LEARNS
A SON
IS SOMETHING HE CAN'T DISMISS

BUDDY & WALTER
THEY MIGHT LEARN THAT THEY
NEED EACH OTHER
MUCH MORE THAN THEY KNOW

WALTER
MAYBE THE POINT OF THE STORY IS
IT'S NEVER TOO LATE TO GROW

BUDDY
IT'S NEVER TOO LATE TO GROW

ALL
IT'S THE STORY OF
BUDDY THE ELF
IT'S THE STORY OF
BUDDY THE ELF
