Come, they told me pa ra pa pa pum
a new born King to see pa ra pa pa pum
Our finest gifts we bring pa ra pa pa pum
To lay before the King pa ra pa pa pum,
ra pa pa pum, ra pa pa pum!

So to honour Him pa ra pa pa pum
When we come!

Little baby pa ra pa pa pum
I am a poor boy too pa ra pa pa pum
I have no gift to bring pa ra pa pa pum
That's fit to give our King pa ra pa pa pum
ra pa pa pum, ra pa pa pum!

Shall I play for you pa ra pa pa pum ?
On my drum!



Mary nodded pa ra pa pa pum
The ox and lamb kept time pa ra pa pa pum
I played my drum for Him pa ra pa pa pum
I played my best for Him pa ra pa pa pum
ra pa pa pum, ra pa pa pum!

Then He smiled at me pa ra pa pa pum
Me and my drum!

drum, drum, drum!
