On the first day of Christmas
My true love gave to me
A partridge in a pear tree

On the second day of Christmas
My true love gave to me
Two turtle doves
And a partridge in a pear tree

On the third day of Christmas
My true love gave to me
Three French hens, two turtle doves
And a partridge in a pear tree

On the fourth day of Christmas
My true love gave to me

Four calling birds
Three French hens, two turtle doves
And a partridge in a pear tree

On the fifth day of Christmas
My true love gave to me

Five golden rings, four calling birds
Three French hens, two turtle doves
And a partridge in a pear tree

What's a partridge and what's a pear tree?
I don't know so please don't ask me
But I can bet those are terrible gifts to get

On the sixth day of Christmas
My true love gave to me
Six geese-a-laying

Five golden rings, four calling birds
Three French hens, two turtle doves
And a partridge in a pear tree

On the seventh day of Christmas
My true love gave to me
Seven swans-a-swimming, six geese-a-laying

Five golden rings, four calling birds
Three French hens, two turtle doves
And a partridge in a pear tree

On the eighth day of Christmas
My true love gave to me
Eight maids-a-milking
Seven swans-a-swimming, six geese-a-laying

Five golden rings, four calling birds
Three French hens, two turtle doves
And a partridge in a pear tree

On the ninth day of Christmas
My true love gave to me
Nine ladies dancing, eight maids-a-milking
Seven swans-a-swimming, six geese-a-laying

Oh, aw-e-aw, four calling birds
Three French hens, two turtle doves
And a partridge in a pear tree

What's a partridge and what's a pear tree?
I don't know so please don't ask me
But I can bet those are terrible gifts to get

On the tenth day of Christmas
My true love gave to me

Ten lords-a-leaping
Nine ladies dancing, eight maids-a-milking
Seven swans-a-swimming, six geese-a-laying

[Incomprehensible], four
Three French, two doves
And a partridge in a pear tree

On the eleventh day of Christmas
My true love gave to me

Eleven pipers piping, ten lords-a-leaping
Nine ladies dancing, eight maids-a-milking
Seven swans-a-swimming, six geese-a-laying

Five golden rings, four calling birds
Three French hens, two turtle doves
And a partridge in a pear tree

On the twelfth day of Christmas
My true love gave to me

Twelve drummers drumming
Eleven pipers piping, ten lords-a-leaping
Nine ladies dancing, eight maids-a-milking
Seven swans-a-swimming, six geese-a-laying

Five golden rings, four calling birds
Three French hens, two turtle doves
And a partridge in a pear tree
