"The Twelve Days of Christmas" as written by George Fenton and Traditional,....
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 gold rings, four calling birds
Three French hens, two turtle doves and a partridge in a pear tree

On the sixth day of Christmas
My true love gave to me six geese a layin', five gold 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 swimmin', six geese a layin'
Five gold 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 milkin'
Seven swans a swimmin', six geese a layin', five gold 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 dancin', eight maids a milkin'
Seven swans a swimmin', six geese a layin', five gold rings
Four calling birds, three French hens, two turtle doves
And a partridge in a pear tree

On the tenth day of Christmas
My true love gave to me ten lords a leapin', nine ladies dancin'
Eight maids a milkin', seven swans a swimmin', six geese a layin'
Five gold rings, four calling birds, three French hens
Two turtle doves and a partridge in a pear tree

On the eleventh day of Christmas
My true love gave to me eleven pipers pipin'
Ten lords a leapin', nine ladies dancin'
Eight maids a milkin', seven swans a swimmin', six geese a layin'
Five gold 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 drummin'
Eleven pipers pipin', ten lords a leapin', nine ladies dancin'
Eight maids a milkin', seven swans a swimmin', six geese a layin'
Five gold 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 drummin'
Eleven pipers pipin', ten lords a leapin', nine ladies dancin'
Eight maids a milkin', seven swans a swimmin', six geese a layin'
Five gold rings, four calling birds, three French hens
Two turtle doves and a partridge in a pear tree
And a partridge in a pear tree
