A 2016 Secular Christmas Carol
Oh, I'm just a homeless elf,
Looking for an empty shelf,
Do you have a Christmas tree,
With an empty branch for me?

I am just a homeless elf,
I wander supermarket aisles,
With my painted on friendly smile,
Singing songs from Christmases past,
Hoping to find a home at last,
On an aisle's empty shelf.

Please help this homeless elf,
Find a warm spacious shelf,
Where I can sit on Christmas day,
To watch your family laugh and play.

I am just a homeless elf,
I wander through December's snow,
Looking for the Christmassy glow,
That casts its light across the ground,
Which tells me I might have found,
A home on an empty mantel or shelf.

Oh, I'm just a homeless elf,
Who needs an empty window shelf,
Won't you give a home to me,
Please make my Christmas worry free.
