Falling ice isn’t the best festive present for our feathered friends so for a few flighting hours they sit atop the tallest trees where they take shelter under the fronds of an evergreen branch while watching balanced snowballs above their heads
Up there in Lapland, where its Christmas all day a strange kind of elf, has decided to play
Santa’s perplexed, as he’s really quite tall but the other elves round him are having a ball! When reaching up high, they call for his aid, and putting toys on high shelves, he’s made the grade
He’s good for woodturning and chopping down wood and making new toys ? He’s really quite good. foreman found him in th’forest – and he said he’s for hire – he comes from a forest – called “Lanky – Shire”
The other elves love him, they think that he’s grand as their big pal “lanky” gives everyone a hand and its not just toymaking skills that he’s got he’s cooking up dinner – he calls it “Hotpot”
And come Christmas eve when the elves they do pack, “lanky” is there to fill Santa Claus’s sack This great big elf, makes every kid smile as he helps dear old Santa go the extra mile
