Lyrics
Yeah alright

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

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 (I have no gifts to bring)
That's fit to give a King
Pa rum pum pum pum,
Rum pum pum pum,
Rum pum pum pum, oh oh

Shall I play for you
Pa rum pum pum pum
On my drum, oh oh
On my drum

Ohoh
I gave my fortune
Pa rum pum pum pum
I played my drum for you
Pa rum pum pum pum pum pum
I played my best for you yeah,oh,
Pa rum pum pum pum
Then he smiled at me, he smiled
Such a pretty smile, yes it was
Me and my drum

Come they told me
Pa rum pum pum pum
My and my drum
When we come
Me and my drum
