Come they told me, pa-rum pum pum pum
Our 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 honour him, pa-rum pum pum pum
When we come

Baby Jesus, pa-rum pum pum pum
I'm 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 mule 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.

Rum pum pum pum, rum pum pum pum
Rum pum pum pum

Rum pum pum pum, rum pum pum pum
Rum pum pum pum
