Come they told me, pa-rum-pa-pum-pum
A new born 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-pa-pum-pum
Rum-pa-pum-pum
So to honor him, pa-rum-pa-pum-pum
When we come
Baby Jesu, 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 our king, pa-rum-pa-pum-pum
Rum-pa-pum-pum
Rum-pa-pum-pum
Shall I play for you, pa-rum-pa-pum-pum
O-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
Rum-pa-pum-pum
Me and my drum
Rum-pa-pum-pum
Me and my drum
Rum-pa-pum-pum (fade)
