The Little Blue Elf

The Little Blue Elf

 

The Little Blue Elf with little blue mittens
Went to the store to buy some blue kittens.
The man at the store said, “I'm sorry to say,
We just gave our little blue kittens away.”

Actually, it was for the best that there were no kittens, because the Little Blue Elf eventually found out that he is allergic to kittens. So he got a little blue dog instead.

The Little Blue Elf enjoys playing Christmas duets with Clarobotoo and his friends.
