Joan Baez – The Little Drummer Boy lyrics

Come they told me parapapampam
A new born king to see parapapampam
Our finest gifst we bring parapapampam
To lay before the king parapapampam
Rapapampam rapapampam
So to honour him parapapampam
When we come

Baby Jesus parapapampam
I am a poor boy to parapapampam
I have nothing to bring parapapampam
Nothing to give our king parapapampam
Rapapampam rapapampam
Shall I play for you parapapampam
On my drum

Mary nodded parapapampam
The ox and lamb kept time parapapampam
I played my drum for him parapapampam
I played my best for him parapapampam
Rapapampam rapapampam
Then he smiled at me parapapampam
Me and my drum
