RINGO STARR lyrics - The Little Drummer Boy

RINGO STARR
"The Little Drummer Boy"
(Harry Simeone, Henry V. Onorati and Katherine K. Davis)

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'm 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, 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.
