Come, they told me
Pa-romp-pa-pom-pom
The newborn King
You'll see
Pa-romp-pa-pom-pom
Our finest gifts
We bring
Pa-romp-pa-pom-pom
To lay
Before the King
Pa-romp-pa-pom-pom
Romp-pa-pom-pom
Romp-pa-pom-pom
So to honor him
Pa-romp-pa-pom-pom
When we come

Baby Jesus
Pa-romp-pa-pom-pom
I am a poor boy too
Pa-romp-pa-pom-pom
I have
No gift to bring
Pa-romp-pa-pom-pom
That fit
Tto give our King
Pa-romp-pa-pom-pom
Romp-pa-pom-pom
Romp-pa-pom-pom
Shall I play for you
Pa-romp-pa-pom-pom
Shall I play for you
Pa-romp-pa-pom-pom
Shall I play for you
Pa-romp-pa-pom-pom
On my drum
Shall I play for you
Pa-romp-pa-pom-pom
On my drum

Mary nodded
Pa-rumpa-pom-pom
The ox and lamb
Kept time
Pa-romp-pa-pom-pom
I played my drum
For him
Pa-romp-pa-pom-pom
I played my best
For him
Pa-romp-pa-pom-pom
Romp-pa-pom-pom
Romp-pa-pom-pom
Then he smiled at me
Pa-romp-pa-pom-pom,
Then he smiled at me
And my drum

On my drum, on my drum
On my drum, on my drum
On my drum, on my drum
On my drum, on my drum
On my drum, on my drum
On my drum, on my drum
Me and my drum
Me and my drum
Me and my drum
Me and my drum
On my drum, on my drum
On my drum, on my drum
