Elflandia Lyrics


Lyrics for students in grades 3, 4 & 5.


1. Elflandia




Welcome friends, to Elflandia,
Our little place in the sun!
Join us now in our story.
We’ll have barrels of fun!
We’re merrily making toys.
We’re stacking them up on the shelves.
Yes, welcome all to Elflandia.
It’s a land __________  that’s full of elves!

Now, at the start of ev’ry day,
We sing with voices true.
We sing our nation’s anthem,
And we’ll sing it now for you:

Elflandia, in unison we rise.
Elflandia, not far, ‘cause we’re pint-size.
And if you can get to Elflandia,
You can stay, enjoy yourself,
For ev’ry one is welcome here,
As long as you’re an elf!
As long as you’re an elf!

And at the end of ev’ry day,
Beneath the sunset’s glow,
We sing again together,
As we shiver, deep in the snow!





2. Making Toys


Better get busy. Better get busy.
Better get busy (Gotta hurry up!)
Better get busy (Gotta hurry up!)
Better get busy {Tap! Tap! Tap!} (Gotta hurry up!)
Better get busy {Tap! Tap! Tap!} (Gotta hurry up!)

Making toys one by one, making toys can be lots of fun.
If you’re sweet, an’ if you’re kind,
We have a toy for you in mind._______________________

Ev’ry day, ev’ry night, working, working with all our might.
Making joy is what we do.
We’re making lots of dreams come true. __________________

Oh,    ho!      Ho, ho, ho!  Work and sing a way!
Oh,    ho!      Ho, ho, ho!  Make a happy hol – i – day!

Ev’ry day punch that clock;
Sanding, drilling an’ knock, knock, knock!
Make each toy a big surprise.
Open it right before their eyes!

All of us do our best. Most days we never stop to rest.
We make fun, and we make joy,
Adding the love to each    new    toy. _________________

Oh,    ho!      Ho, ho, ho!  Work and sing a way!
Oh,    ho!      Ho, ho, ho!  Make a happy hol – i – day!
Better get busy {Tap! Tap! Tap!} (Gotta hurry up!)
Better get busy {Tap! Tap! Tap!} (Gotta hurry up!)
Make a happy hol- i – day!


3. Silly Humans


I don’t mean to gossip, or act like a clod,
But I’ve heard humans are kind of odd!
They do silly stuff. I’m not telling lies.
They choose diet soda with a big pile o’ fries!

Silly humans! Silly humans!
Are they real, well, what do you think?
Silly humans! Silly humans!
If half the stuff were true, by now, they’d be extinct!

We heard when they’re tired, they go for a run.
They lie for hours in blazing sun! They sound so bizarre.
They’re from the unknown.
They line up forever just to buy a new phone!

Silly humans! Silly humans!
Are they real, well, what do you think?
Silly humans! Silly humans!
If half the stuff were true, by now, they’d be extinct!

The more I hear about them,
the more they make me nervous!
We might have to face them
‘cause we’re in Santa’s service.
We could be friends on Facebook,
Or maybe I could tweet one.
I know they sound outrageous,
But I’d kind-a     like-ta  meet one!



Silly humans! Silly humans!
Are they real, well, what do you think?
Silly humans! Silly humans!
If half the stuff were true, by now, they’d be extinct!

Ya think?


4. All a Part of the Story


Sometimes it seems like it’s the hardest time of year.
Where’s the spirit? Where’s the holiday cheer?
But Santa tells the stories of people that he’s known,
And the kindness and love that they have shown.

Logan’s at the shelter, making dinner for the poor,
And no one leaves there hungry when they knock on Emma’s door.
For people feeling lonely, Noah sings a friendly song.
And Alexis led the coat drive, bringing warmth all season long.

We believe, in our hearts we know it’s true,
Happiness can happen if we let it shine through.
People helping people on a night that’s crystal clear,
They’re all a part of the story at this special time of year.

Aiden had to journey many miles to see old friends,
And Haylee’s helping strangers, her compassion never ends.
There’s Ryan, Ted and Taylor spreading kindness ev’rywhere,
And when people need a little lift, we know that Santa’s there!

We believe, in our hearts we know it’s true,
Happiness can happen if we let it shine through.
People helping people on a night that’s crystal clear,
They’re all a part of the story at this special time of year.
At this special time of year.



5. Elfie Selfie!


OK, humans, grab your phones!  HERE WE COME!

Hold the phone, ‘cause here we come to take an Elfie Selfie.
It’s well known, you tap your thumb to take an Elfie Selfie.
Show me your best holiday smile.
Elf to Self, I like your style! Together, we’ll be lookin’ fine,
So put that face                     right next to mine!

I want an Elfie Selfie, an Elfie Selfie!
Let’s all get together now, two-by-two!
I want an Elfie Selfie, an Elfie Selfie!
I wanna take an Elfie Selfie with you!

Just to prove that you exist, we’ll take an Elfie Selfie.
No one move, or you’ll be missed. We’ll take an Elfie Selfie.
Count to three, be sitting up straight.
Next to me, you sure look great!
And with your genuine Elf Appeal,
It might be true       that you are real!

I want an Elfie Selfie, an Elfie Selfie!
Let’s all get together now, two-by-two!
I want an Elfie Selfie, an Elfie Selfie!
I wanna take an Elfie Selfie with you!

(Santa): Ho, ho, ho! Now it’s my turn to take one with all of you! Ev’rybody say “CHEESE!”  
(All): “CHEESE!”


I want an Elfie Selfie, an Elfie Selfie!
Let’s all get together now, two-by-two!
I want an Elfie Selfie, an Elfie Selfie!
I wanna take an Elfie Selfie with you!
I wanna take an Elfie Selfie with you!



Reprise:  Elflandia


So long, from all Elflandia.
We hope you liked our show.
We’re glad we met real humans,
But it’s time for us to go!
All together now:

Elflandia, in unison we rise.
Elflandia, not far, ‘cause we’re pint-size.
And if you can get to Elflandia,
You can stay, enjoy yourself,
For ev’ry one is welcome here,
As long as you’re an elf!
As long    as     you’re     an    elf!
Elflandia!

Elf 1:  Hey Jingle, what are reading?
          Is it fiction or is it fact?

Elf 2:  Oh, it's a book about human beings,
         And about the way they act.

Elf 1:  Oh it really must be fiction then.
          Real humans are inconceivable.

Elf 2:  No human could actually exist.
          The things they do are unbelievable!

Elf 1:  I'm telling you, I think they are real! I heard their songs and cheers!
          I heard them singing holiday songs with my very own pointed ears!

Elf 2:  But have you actually ever seen a real human being?
          It's hard to believe in anything that you are not really seeing.

Elf 1:  Once I saw some tracks in the snow
          That must have been 10 inches long!

Elf 2:  And I heard a giant person singing
          A totally human song.

Elf 1: Really? What did it sound like?

Elf 2:  It was a little bit scary, but it went something like this.
            (very loudly) DECK THE HALLS WITH BOUGHS OF HOLLY! 
          FA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA!

Elf 1:  YIKES! That IS scary! No elf would ever make a sound like that.
          Are you sure it wasn't the wail of a cat?
