Elf the Musical - There Is A Santa Claus Lyrics


MICHAEL:
Buddy, where did you go?

(Sleigh noise)

Mom. Mom. Mom, Mom, Mom!

EMILY:
What? What?

MICHAEL:
I SAW A TINY SLEIGH
MAKE ITS TINY WAY
RIGHT ACROSS THE SKY

EMILY:
Michael.

MICHAEL:
THERE WASN’T TIME TO THINK
THERE WASN’T TIME TO BLINK
BEFORE IT ZOOMED RIGHT BY

AND EVERYTHING I KNEW I KNEW
AND EVERYTHING THAT YOU KNEW TOO
IS ABSOLUTELY NOW UNTRUE BECAUSE
WITHOUT A DOUBT THERE IS A SANTA CLAUS

(Sleigh noise)

EMILY:
Oh my god!

I JUST SAW HIM TOO
YET MY WHOLE LIFE THROUGH
HE SEEMED FAKE TO ME

COULDN’T SANTA SEE
WHAT A FANTASY
HE APPEARED TO BE?

AND EVERYTHING I THOUGHT I THOUGHT
IS TANGLED UP IN ONE BIG KNOT
THE WORLD OUT THERE HAS CLEARLY GOT ITS FLAWS
IF THEY CAN’T SAY THERE IS A SANTA CLAUS

MICHAEL:
AND RUDOLPH’S NOSE REALLY GLOWS
AND GUIDES HIM THROUGH THE NIGHT

EMILY:
THE BEARD LIKE SNOW
THE HO HO HO

MICHAEL:
I TOLD YOU I WAS RIGHT

EMILY:
AND DOES THIS MEAN THAT EASTER EGGS ARE HIDDEN BY A RABBIT?
I JUST THOUGHT THAT I’D BEEN HOCUS-POCUSED
AND DOES THIS MEAN THERE’S ANY TRUTH
TO A FAIRY WHO MIGHT BUY YOUR TOOTH?

MICHAEL:
COME ON, MOTHER, LET’S STAY FOCUSED

BOTH:
(Yell in excitement)

IT’S HARD TO BE SEDATE
OR KEEP YOUR HEAD ON STRAIGHT
WHEN FAIRY TALES COME TRUE
THOUGH I CAN’T COMPLAIN
‘CAUSE IF I’M INSANE
THAT MEANS YOU ARE TOO

SO WHY DON’T WE MAKE A PACT?
A SOLEMN PLEDGE TO BE EXACT
THAT SANTA’S REAL – IN FACT, HE ALWAYS WAS
I KNOW I’VE HAD MY DOUBTS BEFORE
BUT NOW THERE’S PROOF I CAN’T IGNORE
SO WHY DENY IT ANYMORE?
THERE IS A SANTA CLAUS
