The Elf On The Shelf

By Bud Lemire

I'm The Elf On The Shelf, sent here from The North Pole
To find out if every girl and boy, has a good soul
Santa sent me to check, on this Christmas mission
On the Island Of Misfits, I did a lot of fishing

Now I'm here, to check up on you
Naughty or nice, I'll find out what's true
I helped Santa read the lists, of what you asked for
Let me tell you, that many to read makes quite a chore

Mrs. Claus says it is only fair, to be very sure
That each heart that is receiving, is pure
So here I am, going through each home
Please, don't mistake me for a gnome

The reindeer are almost all ready, for Christmas Eve
When the time comes, Santa will be all set to leave
You know, he's got to be pretty fast
It's the one day a year, he has a blast

Naughty or nice, I'm going find out
I research well, there won't be any doubt
Santa will get the word, from myself
Because I am, The Elf On The Shelf

You better be good, for goodness sake
