Elf the Musical - Finale Lyrics


ALL SEVEN HOMELESS
Christmas bells are ringing
Christmas bells are ringing
Christmas bells are ringing
How time flies
When compassion dies
No stockings
No candy canes
No gingerbread
No safety net
No loose change
No change no
ONE HOMELESS MAN
"Santy Claus is coming"

ALL
Santy Claus ain't coming
No room at the Holiday Inn - Again
Well, maybe next year -- or -- when

MARK
December 24th, Ten P.M. Eastern Standard Time
I can't believe a year went by so fast
Time to see - What we have - Time to see
Turn the projector on
First shot
Roger With the Fender guitar he just got out of hock
When he sold the car
That took him away and back

ROGER
I found my song

MARK
He found his song
If he could just find Mimi

ROGER
I tried - You know I tried

MARK
Fade in on Mark
Who's still in the dark

ROGER
But he's got great footage

MARK
Which he's cut together

ROGER
To screen tonight

MARK
In honor of Benny's wife

ROGER
Muffy

MARK
Alison
Pulling Benny out of the East Village location

ROGER
Then again. Maybe we won't screen it tonight

MARK
I wonder how he found out about Mimi?

ROGER
Maybe a little bird told her.

COLLINS
Or an angel I had a little hunch that you could use a little flow

ROGER
Tutoring again?

COLLINS
Negative MARK Back at N.Y.U.?

COLLINS
No, no, no I rewired the ATM at the Food Emporium
To provide an honorarium to anyone with the code

ROGER & MARK
The code - Well. . .?

COLLINS
A-N-G-E-L
Yet Robin Hooding isn't the solution
The powers that be must be undermined
Where they dwell in a small, exclusive gourmet institution
Where we overcharge the wealthy clientele

ALL THREE
Let's open up a restaurant in Santa Fe
With a private corner banquette in the back

COLLINS
We'll make it yet, we'll somehow get to Santa Fe

ROGER
But you'd miss New York before you could unpack
ALL Ohh--

MAUREEN
Mark!
Roger!
Anyone - Help!

MARK
Maureen?

MAUREEN
It's Mimi - I can't get her up the stairs

ROGER
No!

MAUREEN
She was huddled in the park in the dark
And she was freezing
And begged to come here

ROGER
Over here
Oh, God -

MIMI
"Got a light - I know you - You're shivering. . ."

JOANNE
She's been living on the street

ROGER
We need some heat

MIMI
I'm shivering

MARK
We can buy some wood and something to eat

COLLINS
I'm afraid she needs more than heat

MIMI
I heard that

MAUREED
Collins will call for a doctor honey

MIMI
Don't waste your money on Mimi, me, me

COLLINS
Hello - 911?
I'm on hold

MIMI
Cold. . .Cold. . .Would you light my candle

ROGER
Yes - we'll oh God - Find a candle

MIMI
I should tell you
I should tell you

ROGER
I should tell you
I should tell you

MIMI
I should tell you
Benny wasn't any--

ROGER
Shhh - I know
I should tell you why I left
It wasn't cause I didn't --

MIMI
I know I should tell you

ROGER
I should tell you

MIMI
I should tell you I love you--

ROGER
Who do you think you are?
Leaving me alone with my guitar
Hold on there's something you should hear
It isn't much but it took all year
