Bing Crosby/Peter Matz. Chorus

Written by: Katherine Davis/Henry Onorati/Harry Simeone


Come they told me
Parum pum pum pum

A new born King to see
Parum pum pum pum

Our finest gifts we bring
Parum pum pum pum

To lay before the King
Parum pum pum pum
Rum pum pum pum
Rum pum pum pum

So to honor Him
Parum pum pum pum

When we come.

Baby Jesus
Parum pum pum pum

I am a poor boy too
Parum pum pum pum

I have no gift to bring
Parum pum pum pum

That's fit to give a King
Parum pum pum pum
Rum pum pum pum
Rum pum pum pum.

Shall I play for you
Parum pum pum pum
On my drum?

[Mary nodded
Parum pum pum pum

The ox and lamb kept time
Parum pum pum pum]

I played my drum for Him
Parum pum pum pum

I played my best for Him
Parum pum pum pum
Rum pum pum pum
Rum pum pum pum

Then He smiled at me
Parum pum pum pum

Me and my drum

Me and my drum
