Ringo Starr – The Little Drummer Boy lyrics
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'm 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 our 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 played my 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.
