Burl Ives

Burl Icle Ivanhoe Ives (June 14, 1909 - April 14, 1995) was an American actor, writer and folk music singer. As an actor, Ives's work included comedies, dramas, and voice work in theater, television, and motion pictures. Music critic John Rockwell said, "Ives's voice ... had the sheen and finesse of opera without its latter-day Puccinian vulgarities and without the pretensions of operatic ritual. It was genteel in expressive impact without being genteel in social conformity. And it moved people." more »

Ho ho ho. 
Ho ho ho. 
We are Santa's elves. 

We are Santa's elves, 
Filling 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. 
Ho ho ho. Ho ho ho. 
We are Santa's elves. 
Ho Ho!
