Bing Crosby – The Twelve Days Of Christmas lyrics
Bing Crosby

Written by: Traditional


On the first day of Christmas, my true love sent to me
A partridge in a pear tree.

[On the second day of Christmas, my true love sent to me
Two turtledoves
[And a partridge in a pear tree.]

On the third day of Christmas, my true love sent to me
Three French hens,
[Two turtledoves]
And a partridge in a pear tree.

[On the fourth day of Christmas, my true love sent to me
[Four calling birds,]
Three French hens,
[Two turtledoves]
And a partridge in a pear tree.

On the fifth day of Christmas, my true love sent to me
[Five golden rings.] Five golden rings
[Four calling birds,]
Three French hens,
[Two turtledoves]
And a partridge in a pear tree.

On the sixth day of Christmas, my true love sent to me
Six geese a-laying,
[Five golden rings.] Five golden rings
[Four calling birds,]
Three French hens,
[Two turtledoves,]
And a partridge in a pear tree.

[On the seventh day of Christmas, my true love sent to me
Seven swans a-swimming,]
Six geese a-laying,
[Five golden rings.] Five golden rings
[Four calling birds,]
Three French hens,
[Two turtledoves]
And a partridge in a pear tree.

[On the eighth day of Christmas, my true love sent to me
Eight maids a-milking,]
Seven swans a-swimming,]
Six geese a-laying,
[Five golden rings.] Five golden rings
[Four calling birds,]
Three French hens,
[Two turtledoves]
And a partridge in a pear tree.

On the ninth day of Christmas, my true love sent to me
Nine ladies dancing,
[Eight maids a-milking,]
[Seven swans a-swimming,]
Six geese a-laying,
[Five golden rings.] Five golden rings
[Four calling birds,]
Three French hens,
[Two turtledoves]
And a partridge in a pear tree.

[On the tenth day of Christmas, my true love sent to me]
[Ten lords a-leaping,]
Nine ladies dancing,
[Eight maids a-milking,]
[Seven swans a-swimming,]
Six geese a-laying,
[Five golden rings.] Five golden rings
[Four calling birds,]
Three French hens,
[Two turtledoves]
And a partridge in a pear tree.

On the eleventh day of Christmas, my true love sent to me
[I sent 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.] Five golden rings
[Four calling birds,]
Three French hens,
[Two turtledoves]
And a partridge in a pear tree.

[On the twelfth day of Christmas, my true love sent 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.] Five golden rings
[Four calling birds,]
Three French hens,
[Two turtledoves]
And a partridge in a pear tree.
And a partridge in a pear tree.
