"Little Drummer Boy (Up the Khyber)" as written by and Katherine K/onorati Davis....
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
Rum pum pum pum. rum pum pum pum
So to honor Him pa-rum pum pum pum
When we come

Little Baby pa-rum pum pum pum
I am a poor boy too, pa-rum pum pum pum
I have no gift to bring pa-rum pum pum pum
That's fit to give our King pa- rum pum pum pum
Rum pum pum pum, rum pum pum pum
Shall I play for you, pa-rum pum pum pum
on my drum?

Mary nodded pa-rum pum pum pum
The Ox and Lamb kept time pa-rum pum pum pum
I played my drum for Him pa-rum pum pum pum
I played my best for Him pa -rum pum pum pum
Rum pum pum pum, rum pum pum pum
Then He smiled at me pa-rum pum pum pum
Me and my drum

    General CommentIn all the times I've heard this song, I don't remember hearing them sing. Anyway, the video made for this song really makes a commentary about how Christmas is so vastly different in Australia than it is in the northern hemisphere. First of all, Christmas occurs just after the summer solstice in the southern hemisphere. For them, Christmas means summer fun - going to the beach, having the shrimp on the barbie kind of thing.
