Santa’s Littlest Elf Has Autism (Lyrics)

Back in the old days Santa Littlest Elf didn’t care much for his presents

never opening only lining the shelves like a picket fence.                        

He told Santa give them to the orphans at the orphanage down the way.                                                                                                                    

There was a problem.  The sleigh was too old.  Besides that it didn’t travel straight.

Lickity Split that sleigh wouldn’t go over the snow drifts.  It was too old. 

Lickity Split that sleigh wouldn’t go over the snow drifts.  Oh, no, no, no.

The littlest Elf had a fascination with lights and spinning rays.                 

Santa wasn’t surprised about his plan to fix that old wooden sleigh.                                

I can harness the energy of those bright Northern Lights.                                         

The reindeer antlers use like antennas to navigate during flight.   

Lickity Split that sleigh wouldn’t go over the snow drifts.  It was too old. 

Lickity Split that sleigh wouldn’t go over the snow drifts.  Oh, no, no, no.                                                                                                                                                                

We all witnessed the very first Christmas and many more over time.                    

The Littlest Elf never took the credit for he was so very shy,                         

Later on we learned of his autism and we’re proud he’s so different                    

for if it wasn’t for his gift giving they’d still be lined end to end.

Lickity Split that sleigh wouldn’t go over the snow drifts.  It was too old. 

Lickity Split that sleigh wouldn’t go over the snow drifts.  Oh, no, no, no.

Within a minute it was in the distance,                                      

Santa’s sleigh was out of here                                                                    

in the atmosphere with all the presents                                                 

thanks to an Elf with pointed ears.
