The Spinners – The Twelve Days Of Christmas lyrics
On the first day of Christmas
My true love sent to me
A partridge in a pear tree!

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

Three french hens
On the third day of Christmas
My true love sent to me
Three french hens
Two turtle doves
And a partridge in a pear tree!

Four calling birds
On the fourth day of Christmas (what's a calling bird)
My true love sent to me
Four calling birds
Three french hens
Two turtle doves
And a partridge in a pear tree!

Five golden rings!
On the fifth day of Christmas
My true love sent to me
Five golden rings!
Four calling birds
Three french hens
Two turtle doves
And a partridge in a pear tree!

Six geese a layin'
On the sixth day of Christmas
My true love sent to me
Six geese a layin'
Five golden rings!
Four calling birds
Three french hens
Two turtle doves
And a partridge in a pear tree!

Seven swans a swimmin'
On the seventh day of Christmas
My true love sent to me
Seven swans a swimmin'
Six geese a layin'
Five golden rings!
Four calling birds
Three french hens
Two turtle doves
And a partridge in a pear tree!

Eight maids a milkin'
On the eighth day of Christmas
My true love sent to me
Eight maids a milkin'
Seven swans a swimmin'
Six geese a layin'
Five golden rings!
Four calling birds (calling birds)
Three french hens
Two turtle doves
And a partridge in a pear tree!

Nine ladies dancin'
On the ninth day of christmas
My true love sent to me
Nine ladies dancin'
Eight maids a milkin'
Seven swans a swimmin'
Six geese a layin'
Five golden rings!
Four calling birds
Three french hens
Two turtle doves
And a partridge in a pear tree!

Ten lords a leapin'
On the tenth day of Christmas
My true love sent to me
Ten lords a leapin'
Nine ladies dancin'
Eight maids a milkin'
Seven swans a swimmin'
Six geese a layin'
Five golden rings!
Four calling birds
Three french hens
Two turtle doves
And a partridge in a pear tree!

Eleven pipers pipin'
On the eleventh day of Christmas
My true love sent to me
Eleven pipers pipin'
Ten lords a leapin'
Nine ladies dancin'
Eight maids a milkin'
Seven swans a swimmin'
Six geese a layin'
Five golden rings!
Four calling birds
Three french hens
Two turtle doves
And a partridge in a pear tree!

Twelve drummers drummin'
On the twelfth day of Christmas
My true love sent to me
Twelve drummers drummin'
Eleven pipers pipin'
Ten lords a leapin'
Nine ladies dancin'
Eight maids milkin'
Seven swans a swimmin'
Six geese a layin'
Five golden rings!
Four calling birds
Three french hens
Two turtle doves
And a partridge in a pear tree!
