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.

Little Baby,
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 the 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 play me 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

    in honor of the Christ child, all were bringing gifts. the little drummer boy was poor and had nothing that equaled the gifts others were giving. so he gave his best, his ability to drum. his drumming caused even the animals to sway to the beat and he gave his "best" performance, even as a baby Jesus smiled, knowing that all you have to do is give your best when you give, no matter the cost as it is not the cost that matters, but from the heart
