Elf the Musical - Nobody Cares About Santa Lyrics


FAKE SANTA #1
USED TO BE
I'D STAND ON THE BUSIEST
CORNER
RING MY BELL
AND MAKE THE PEOPLE SMILE

NOWADAYS
THEY PASS ME BY, AND WHO
KNOWS WHY
COULD IT BE THAT OLD SAINT
NICK'S GONE OUT OF STYLE?

ALL FAKES SANTAS
WELL, NOBODY CARES
NOBODY CARES
NOBODY CARES ABOUT SANTA

THEY READ THEIR LIST
THEN YOU GET DISMISSED
'CAUSE NOBODY CARES ABOUT
SANTA CLAUS

FKE SANTA #2
USED TO BE
THE KIDS WAITED HOURS TO
SEE ME
ALL THAT JOY COULD ALMOST
MAKE YOU CRY

MANAGER
NOW THEY THINK
I'M JUST PASSE, SOME DUMB
CLICHE
AND IT MAKES ME WONDER WHY
I EVEN TRY

ALL FAKE SANTAS
WELL, NOBODY CARES
NOBODY CARES
NOBODY CARES ABOUT SANTA

YOU ONCE WERE REVERED

FAKE SANTA #3
NOW THEY YANK OFF YOUR
BEARD!

ALL FAKE SANTAS
'CAUSE NOBODY CARES ABOUT
SANTA CLAUS
IS THIS ALL A SIGN?

BUDDY
IS THIS ALL AN AWFUL SIGN?

ALL FAKE SANTAS
OF A SAD DECLINE?

BUDDY
A MISERABLE, SAD DECLINE!

BUDDY
I NEVER KNEW SUCH DISRESPECT
COULD EVER HAVE EXISTED
NO WONDER THIS WHOLE CITY
HAS BEEN NAUGHTY LISTED!

(Dance break.)

BUDDY
HOW CAN SANTA CLAUS?

ALL FAKE SANTAS
HOW CAN GOOD OLD SANTA
CLAUS?

BUDDY
BE A HOPELESS CAUSE?

ALL FAKE SANTAS
A TOTALLY HOPLESS CAUSE!

BUDDY
EVEN LITTLE CHILDREN
THINK THAT SANTA'S OVERRATED
I KINDA GET THE FEELING
THAT NEW YORK IS JADED!

ALL FAKE SANTAS
KINDA GET THAT FEELING, TOO!

ALL
WELL, NOBODY CARES
NOBODY CARES
NOBODY CARES ABOUT SANTA

THE BRINGER OF BLISS

BUDDY
WHAT KIND OF WORLD IS THIS?!

ALL
WHERE NOBODY CARES ABOUT
WEARY, FED UP
READY TO HANG THE SLED UP
SANTA CLAUS

HO? HO? HO?
NO! NO! NO!
