Christmas Carols - The Little Drummer Boy

English

The Little Drummer Boy

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
Rum-pum-pum
 
So to honor Him,
Pa-rum-pum-pum-pum
When we come...
 
Little Baby,
Pa-rum-pum-pum-pum...
I am 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
Rum-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
Rum-pum-pum
 
Then He smiled at me,
Pa-rum-pum-pum-pum...
Me and my drum...

Submitter's comments:

There are many artists, many versions. This is the most traditional and well known.

Thanks!
