Song-WeAreSantasElves

"We Are Santa's Elves" is a song written for the Rankin/Bass Christmas television special Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. It is sung by the elves for Santa Claus.

In later rebroadcasts of the special (as well as the video releases by Family Home Entertainment), the song was trimmed to cut out the instrumental bridge and most of the lyrics following it. At some point in the 1970s, the song was cut from the special entirely and reinstated a few years later.[1]

Lyrics

Ho Ho Ho, Ho Ho Ho
We are Santa's elves!

We are Santa's elves
Building Santa's shelves
With a toy for each girl and boy
Oh, We are Santa's elves!

We work hard all day
But our work is play
Dolls we try out
See if they cry out
We are Santa's elves!

We've a special job each year
We don't like to brag
Christmas Eve we always fill Santa's bag

Santa knows who's good
Do the things you should
And we bet you, he won't forget you
We are Santa's elves!

[Instrumental bridge]

We've a special job each year
We don't like to brag
Christmas Eve we always fill Santa's bag

Santa knows who's good
Do the things you should
And we bet you, he won't forget you
We are Santa's elves!

Ho Ho Ho, Ho Ho Ho
We are Santa's elves!
Ho HO!
