Come they told me, pa, rum, pum, pum, pum
Our 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 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 a 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
