An Elf Named Freddie

Once all of Santa's little elves
Craved some credit for themselves.
All year long they would work away,
While reindeer come for just one day.

And for that simple one night ride
Their names are sung both far and wide.
Now is this fair? Can you yourself
Give the name of just one elf?

These little guys who make the toys
That Santa takes to girls and boys.
Thought that it would not be wrong
And so they wrote a grand elf song.

"Here's to the elves, Bill and Harry,
Charley, Trekster, Treva, Diane, Roger,

Willie, Mary, Edgar, Rosie, Lucy, and Fred.
Joe and Howie, Ruth and Ted."

So it went verse after verse.
Each extra verse just made it worse.
When old Santa heard their song
The thing was forty minutes long.

It started, he cried, "Ho, Ho Ho!!
Ten verses and he shouted, "Whoa!
Here is one thing I know real well
A list of all you elves won't sell."

"The thing you really have to show
Is one to be your elf hero.
When folks cheer, their praise will stand
For all the elves in Santaland.

"The way to make a good selection
Is to hold a special elf election."
They did and when the votes were cast
There was a famous elf at last.

The whole elf nation then was ready
To proclaim their hero "Friendly Freddie'
Now Friendly Fred was very cool
He earned all A's in Elf High School.

Here are some talents of this elf:
Why, he could line dance by himself.
He'd play the strings right off a fiddle
And Fred would solve the toughest riddle

Intelligent and handsome, too.
He was quite tall at two foot two.
On tiptoes he could clearly see
Above the tallest reindeer knee.

Amid elf cheers in Santa Land,
Santa spoke and shook Fred's hand,
"Friendly Freddie, I think, perhaps
You'll fly with me and read the maps."

Fred took a minute to absorb it:
He'd be the first elf into orbit.
And as his elf heart swelled with pride.
He cried, "I'll be on Santa's ride."

Now each and every Christmas night,
Freddie is there on Santa's right.
Without him Santa wouldn't know
How to get where he must go.

With those maps Fred's sure to be
An expert in geography.
Now all the elves are very proud,
As they sing this song, long and loud:

 

Up on the housetop goes our Fred.
All dressed up in his suit of red.
Helping Santa deliver toys
That we elves made for girls and boys.

Go! Fred! Go! Oh, what a show
Go! Fred! Go! Our elf hero--oo
We elves can cheer the whole night long
And we can sing this nice elf song.

The whole year long we work away
To build a happy Christmas Day.
And we are proud tonight because
An elf is riding with Santa Claus.

Go! Fred! Go! Oh, what a show
Go! Fred! Go! Our elf hero--oo
We elves can cheer the whole night long
And we can sing this nice elf song.

So Santa likes this new elf song
That makes elves know that they belong.
Here is a secret he shares with you
The reindeer like to sing it, too.

Go! Fred! Go! Oh, what a show
Go! Fred! Go! Our elf hero--oo
Reindeer will cheer the whole night long
As we all sing this nice elf song.

--Grandpa Tucker
