The Lyrics

Well, it's time for me to jump on the Christmas band-wagon!
All the parents shop on Ebay
For the video games their kids play,
No more wooden toys for the good girls and boys
Guess I'll emancipate my elves.

Well they work so hard all year,
For only food stamps and some beer,
Well you think I'm kind, I'm just a slave-driving swine,
I should emancipate my elves.

Ho ho, Emancipate my elves.
Ho, ho, Emancipate my elves.
Well, they've got nothing to do,
And no more presents to move,
Guess I'll emancipate my elves.

I used to fly all over the world
With gifts for all the boys and girls,
But then I said, "hey guys,
It's time for me to downsize."
So I'll emancipate my elves.

The kids think my presents stink,
So I'll sit on my @ss and drink.
Listen to Christmas songs, and take a hit off the bong
I should emancipate my elves.

Ho ho, Emancipate my elves,
Ho ho, emancipate my elves,
I'll give 'em all a chance
To roam the world and dance,
I should emancipate my elves.

Ho ho ho ho,
Ho ho ho ho....
(Instrumental interlude)


I'm up in the North Pole you see,
With no new technology
And Mrs. Claus and me we need some privacy
I should emancipate my elves.

And take that red-nosed Rudolph with you,
Comet, Donner and Blitzen too,
Don't know what else to do, I hate their smelly poo,
So I'll emancipate my elves.

Ho ho, emancipate my elves,
Ho ho, emancipate my elves,
If I had a chance,
I'd burn these silly pants,
And I'd emancipate my elves.

Ho ho ho ho,
Ho ho ho ho.

(Split, split, split split split split!)

Really? Thanks Aussie!

Wish I knew the original song better - this is a great read !

Oh, good. I was afraid this was going to be an appeal for an amendment to the Constitution of Middle Earth to grant elves voting rights.

Thanks anyway, Johnny. I seem to be having the same problem these days. And no, you won't find me writing a Lord of the Rings parody... I like the books/movies, but I just don't want to go down that road!

It's been written. "Bored of the Rings" by the Harvard Lampoon. 1970 ish.
Johnny D - November 24, 2003 - Report this comment
Now New Line Cinema's CEO's new official title is Chairman Of The Board Of The Rings. Not. But ya gotta admit that title has a ring to it.
Leah Lockhart - November 25, 2003 - Report this comment
LOL Johnny! Seriously, some people scare me. I have a friend whose wedding ring is inscribed in Elvin. Yeah, like THE ring. So I try to avoid cult topics and leave that to the uber-geeks.

This was very clever Leah. Good job! "I'd burn these silly pants" was my favorite line.
Claude Prez - November 25, 2003 - Report this comment
Actually, I think I liked the "Ho Ho" part best; it's fun to imagine Billy Idol singing this.
Leah Lockhart - November 27, 2003 - Report this comment
Thank you Meriadoc and Claude. The "ho-ho's" were actually an afterthought-- glad you liked it.

He- he, just caught this one! Nice work Leah! =)

I was gonna do "Dancing with My Elf," but this is much better. Ho ho huh-ho.

Thank you Diva and Spaff! (If you are, indeed, the real Diva and real Spaff!)

Yes, it's really ME, Leah! =) You've been taking notes! As you can see, there are some pitfalls at this site, as I described.

Super, and very original :-)

Ah... a vote replaced. I thought this seemed familiar when I read through...
