"12 Days Of Christmas" as written by Matthew Arnold Thiessen and Dp,....
On the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me
A partridge in a pear tree

On the second day of Christmas my true love gave to me
Two turtle doves and a partridge in a pear tree

On the third day of Christmas my true love gave to me
Three french hens, two turtle doves
And a partridge in a pear tree

On the fourth day of Christmas my true love gave to me
Four calling birds, three french hens,
Two turtle doves and a partridge in a pear tree

On the fifth day of Christmas my true love gave to me
Five golden rings
Four calling birds, three french hens,
Two turtle doves and a partridge in a pear tree

What's a partridge, and what's a pear tree?
Well I don't know so please don't ask me
But I can bet those are terrible gifts to give

On the sixth day of Christmas my true love gave to me
Six geese a laying, five golden rings,
Four calling birds, three french hens,
Two turtle doves and a partridge in a pear tree

On the seventh day of Christmas my true love gave to me
Seven swans a swimming,
Six geese a laying, five golden rings,
Four calling birds, three french hens,
Two turtle doves and a partridge in a pear tree

On the eighth day of Christmas my true love gave to me
Eight maids a milking, seven swans a swimming,
Six geese a laying, five golden rings,
Four calling birds, three french hens,
Two turtle doves and a partridge in a pear tree

On the ninth day of Christmas my true love gave to me
Nine ladies dancing,
Eight maids a milking, seven swans a swimming,
Six geese a laying,
Four calling birds, three french hens,
Two turtle doves and a partridge in a pear tree

What's a partridge, and what's a pear tree?
Well I don't know so please don't ask me
But I can bet those are terrible gifts to give

On the tenth day of Christmas my true love gave to me
Ten lords a leaping, nine ladies dancing,
Eight maids a milking, seven swans a swimming,
Six geese a laying, dof-men-gose-reens,
Four (clap-clap-clap), three french (pop!),
Two (clap-clap) doves and a partridge in a pear tree

On the eleventh day of Christmas my true love gave to me
Eleven pipers piping,
Ten lords a leaping, nine ladies dancing,
Eight maids a milking, seven swans a swimming,
Six geese a laying, five golden rings,
Four calling birds, three french hens,
Two turtle doves and a partridge in a pear tree

On the twelfth day of Christmas my true love gave to me
Twelve drummers drumming eleven pipers piping,
Ten lords a leaping, nine ladies dancing,
Eight maids a milking, seven swans a swimming,
Six geese a laying, five golden rings,
Four calling birds, three french hens,
Two turtle doves and a partridge in a pear tree

    General Commentthis song means garbage to me... who the freak would sing the 12 days of christmas in rock? These guys have no musical talent whatsoever and they don't ever know what a partridge is? or a pear tree?!?!

    General CommentHaha, this song deserves way more cred.
    Relient K are so brilliant lyrically and musically. They turned a song that normally would cause people to pass out, fall asleep or bore someone into the grave into an amazingly witty and BEARABLE one, with 'rocking-ness' to boot!

    General Commentimrighturwrong1...are you a troll, or are you just retarded? If the former is the case, than get out of here. Freaking trolls. If the latter is the case, than you're retarded.
