“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

Pum pum pum pum

Pa rum pum pum

Pum pum pum pum

Pa rum pum pum

Pum pum pum pum

Pa rum pum pum

Pum pum pum pum pa rum

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 pum,

Rum pum pum pum

Shall I play for you

Pa rum pum pum pum

Pa rum pum pum

Pum pum pum pum

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

Come they told me

Pa rum pum pum pum

A new born king to see

Pa rum pum pum pum

Me and my drum

Me and my drum

Me and my drum

Me and my drum

Rum pum pum pum”
