A knock came upon my door today
Got up to see, but there was no one there
Tried to sit back down to me quietly
Something from the corner it stares

Lime faced demon in my fireplace
Sifting through the ash of another din
Say, what are you looking for me ghastly face
Down in the drums no me never sin

Up from the lake front ye came
A drunken sailor is to blame
Catch fast jack rippin off me candlesticks
Runnin through the house rippin out all the bricks

Love, there's an elf in the kitchen
Molly, lift your dress skirts high
Be careful where you step
Don't look into his eye
Molly, there's an elf in the kitchen
Love, there's an elf in the kitchen
Stand on that chair there
Watch him nippin at your ankles fair
Molly, there's an elf in the kitchen

From where wild storms came
The wicked wind whispers his name
But the cobbler of Clare doesn't answer to anyone
With his castles of gold despair he builds his fun

Chased him through the pantry
And out onto the back landing
Up on the thatched roof and into the bedroom
Dumb as a door the cornered bridegroom

Bottle of whiskey for the sailors dare
A treasure chest filled with seaweed and mermaid hair
Proud toe sewed bells ringing down the front stair
Molly in the kitchen still standing on that chair
