Lyrics

Lou Rawls

  • You can never find an elf when you need one,
  • When you've got to get that toy beneath the tree

Desirée Goyette

  • Yeah, when an elf is what you need,
  • His energy, his speed,

Lou Rawls and Desirée Goyette

  • There never seems to be one who's free

Lou Rawls

  • Then comes that magical moment,

Desirée Goyette

  • So the story goes on Christmas Eve,

Lou Rawls

  • When elves and other weirdos,

Lou Rawls & Desirée Goyette

  • Think it's better to give than receive.

Desirée Goyette

  • See you can never find an elf when you need one,
  • And you don't know what you're gonna do.

Lou Rawls

  • But if you believe,
  • The magic of Christmas Eve,

Lou Rawls & Desirée Goyette

  • Then, one... finds... you!
