The Lyrics Are Below

 Barenaked Ladies

Elf's Lament

 

I'm a man of reason, and they say "'Tis the season to be jolly"

But it's folly when you volley for position

 

Never in existence has there been such a resistance

To ideas meant to free us

If you could see us, then you'd listen

 

Toiling through the ages, making toys on garnished wages

There's no union

We're only through when we outdo the competition

 

I make toys, but I've got aspirations

Make some noise

Use your imagination

Girls and boys, before you wish for what you wish for

There's a list for who's been

Naughty or nice, but consider the price to an elf

 

A full indentured servitude can reflect on one's attitude

But that silly red hat just makes the fat man look outrageous

 

Absurd though it may seem, you know, I've heard there's even been illegal doping

And though we're coping, I just hope it's not contagious

 

You try to start a movement, and you think you see improvement

But when thrown into the moment, we just don't seem so courageous

 

I make toys, but I've got aspirations

Make some noise

Use your imagination

Girls and boys, before you wish for what you wish for

There's a list for who's been

Naughty or nice, but consider the price to an elf

 

You look at yourself

You're an elf

And the shelf is just filled with disappointing memories

Trends come and go, and your friends wanna know why you aren't just happy making crappy little gizmos

Every kid knows they'll just throw this stuff away

 

We're used to repetition, so we drew up a petition

We, the undersigned, feel undermined

Let's redefine "employment"

 

We know that we've got leverage, so we'll hand the fat man a beverage

And sit back while we attack the utter lack of our enjoyment

 

It may be tough to swallow, but our threats are far from hollow

He may thunder, but if he blunders, he may wonder where the toys went

 

I make toys, but I've got aspirations

Make some noise

Use your imagination

Girls and boys, before you wish for what you wish for

There's a list for who's been

Naughty or nice, but consider the price

Naughty or nice, but consider the price

Naughty or nice, but consider the price to an elf
