"The Twelve Days of Christmas" as written by Douglas Gamley and Dp,....
On the first day of Christmas, my true love sent to me
A partridge in a pear tree.

(On the second day of Christmas, my true love sent to me
Two turtledoves
And a partridge in a pear tree).

On the third day of Christmas, my true love sent to me
Three French hens,
(Two turtledoves)
And a partridge in a pear tree.

(On the fourth day of Christmas, my true love sent to me)
(Four calling birds,)
Three French hens,
(Two turtledoves)
And a partridge in a pear tree.

On the fifth day of Christmas, my true love sent to me
(Five golden rings.) Five golden rings
(Four calling birds,)
Three French hens,
(Two turtledoves)
And a partridge in a pear tree.

On the sixth day of Christmas, my true love sent to me
Six geese a-laying,
(Five golden rings). Five golden rings
(Four calling birds,)
Three French hens,

And a partridge in a pear tree.

(On the seventh day of Christmas, my true love sent to me
Seven swans a-swimming,)
Six geese a-laying,
(Five golden rings). Five golden rings

Three French hens,
(Two turtledoves)
And a partridge in a pear tree.

(On the eighth day of Christmas, my true love sent to me
Eight maids a-milking,)
Seven swans a-swimming,
Six geese a-laying,
(Five golden rings). Five golden rings
(Four calling birds,)
Three French hens,
(Two turtledoves)
And a partridge in a pear tree.

On the ninth day of Christmas, my true love sent to me
Nine ladies dancing,
(Eight maids a-milking,)

And a partridge in a pear tree.

(On the tenth day of Christmas, my true love sent to me)

Six geese a-laying,
(Five golden rings). Five golden rings
(Four calling birds,)
Three French hens,

And a partridge in a pear tree.

On the eleventh day of Christmas, my true love sent to me
(I sent 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). Five golden rings
(Four calling birds,)
Three French hens,

And a partridge in a pear tree.

(On the twelfth day of Christmas, my true love sent 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). Five golden rings
(Four calling birds,)
Three French hens,
(Two turtledoves)
And a partridge in a pear tree.
And a partridge in a pear tree.
