Elves Come A-Tumbling

When the elves come tumbling in
Then the work- it truly begins
Aft and fro to and back
“Don’t forget that little tack”
Build it up
Make it shine
“Don’t forget that thing behind”
Tree is up
Light is fine
Then it comes wrapping time
Presents fall
Sack is full
With a little care that’s all
Surprise in wait
Lay them straight
toys for one
One and all
For the big
For the small
“Don’t forget”

Santa calls

“All the little reindeer dolls”
Jingle fro
And jingle back
Time to fill that big ole sack
