"The Little Drummer Boy" as written by Michael G. Giacchino and George Frideric Handel....
Come they told me, pa-rum-pum-pum-pum
Our newborn king to see, pa-rum-pum-pum-pum
Our finest gifts we bring, pa-rum-pum-pum-pum, pa-rum-pum-pum-pum
To lay before the kind, pa-rum-pum-pum-pum, rum-pum-pum-pum, rum-pum-pum-pum

Little baby, pa-rum-pum-pum-pum
I am a poor girl too, pa-rum-pum-pum-pum
I have no gifts to bring, pa-rum-pum-pum-pum
That's fit to give the king, pa-rum-pum-pum-pum
Pum-pum-pum, pum-pum-pum-pum, pa-rum-pum-pum-pum-pum-pum
Shall I play for you pa-rum-pum-pum-pum, rum-pum-pum-pum, rum-pum-pum-pum

Mary nodded, pa-rum-pum-pum-pum
The ox and the lamb kept time, little drummer boy

I played my drums for him, ba-dum-pum-pum
I played my best for him, ba-dum-pum-pum
Then he smiled at me, ba-dum-pum-pum
Little drummer boy smiled at me, ba-dum-pum-pum

Our finest gifts we bring, ba-dum-pum-pum
L-l-laying before our king, ba-dum-pum-pum
(Brrra-da-duh-num, pum-pum, brrra-da-duh-num
Duh-nuh-dum-dum, duh-duh-duh-dum, da-dum-dum-dum, dum

Come they told me, pa-rum-pum-pum-pum
Our newborn king to see, pa-rum-pum-pum-pum
Our finest gifts we bring, pa-rum-pum-pum-pum
To lay before the king, pa-rum-pum-pum-pum
To lay before the king, pa-rum-pum-pum-pum

Hey little drummer boy
Oh little drummer boy, brra-da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da-dah
I am a poor girl too, what shall I play for you, brra-da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da-dah
I have no gift to bring, that's fit to give the king, brra-da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da-dah
(Rum-pum) Rum-pum-pum-pum, (Pum-pum) Rum-pum-pum-pum
When we come, on my drum, me and my drum

Come they told me, a newborn king to see
(Little drummer boy), we bringin' our finest gifts to lay before the king
Rum-rum-pum-pum-pum, rum-rum-pum-pum-pum, oh
Rum-pum-pum-pum, fum-pum-pum-pum
Rum-pum-pum-pum, oh, fa-fa-fa-fa
