"Little Drummer Boy" as written by Sarah Mclachlan, Traditional,, Pierre Marchand and Jeremy Lubbock....
Come, they told me, pa, rum, pa, pum, pum
A newborn king to see, pa, rum, pa, pum, pum
Our finest gifts we bring, pa, rum, pa, pum, pum
To lay before the king, pa, rum, pa, pum, pum
Rum, a pum pum
Rum, pa, pum, pum
And so to honor him, pa, rum, pa, pum, pum
When we come

Little baby, pa, rum, pa, pum, pum
I am a poor boy, too, pa, rum, pa, pum, pum
I have no gift to bring, pa, rum, pa, pum, pum
That's fit to give a king, pa, rum, pa, pum, pum
Rum, pa, pum, pum
Rum, pa, pum, pum
Shall I play for you? Pa, rum, pa, pum, pum
On my drum

Mary nodded, pa, rum, pa, pum, pum
The ox and lamb kept time, pa, rum, pa, pum, pum
I played my drum for him, pa, rum, pa, pum, pum
I played my best for him, pa, rum, pa, pum, pum
Rum, pa, pum, pum
Rum, pa, pum, pum
Then he smiled at me, pa, rum, pa, pum, pum
Me and my drum
Me and my drum
