give it to the elf
he’ll put it on the shelf
and play the kind of music
that he wants to hear

give it to the elf
he’ll talk about himself
and show you all the pictures
that he wants to see

zap, its the the nuclear age
zap, it began in a rage
everyone’s gone
and then the man with hair of straw
comes to stay

little gerald mouse
had run around the house
he gets into
all of lissa’s things

little gerald mouse
now runs around the house
teasing all the ladies
in their dungarees

give it to the elf
he’ll put it on the shelf
only gerald mouse
keeps avis away

it began to rain
when the tree would not grow
so cloe got on top of me
and filled the sky with snow
