"Little Drummer Boy" as written by and Katherine K/onorati Davis....
Little drummer boy
Drummer boy, drummer boy
Little drummer boy
Drummer boy, drummer boy

Come they told me
Pa rum, pum, pum, pum
A new born 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

Baby, Jesu
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 a 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

Then He smiled at me
Pa rum, pum, pum, pum
Me and my drum

Little drummer boy
Drummer boy, drummer boy
Little drummer boy
Drummer boy, drummer boy

Little drummer boy
Little drummer boy
Drummer boy, drummer boy
