Sing Along Now!


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.
Rum pum pum pum
Rum pum pum pum
Rum pum pum pum
So to honor him pa rum bum bum bum
When we come.

Little baby,
I am a poor boy too.
I have no gift to bring
That's fit to give our King.
Shall I play for you?

Mary nodded.
The ox and lamb kept time.
I played my drum for him.
I played my best for him.
Then he smiled at me,
Me and my drum.

Little Drummer Boy
