The Little Drummer Boy
Harry Simeone Chorale Lyrics


Come, they told me pa-rum pum pum pum
Our newborn 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

Baby Gesu 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
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 (pa -rum pum pum pum)
Then He smiled at me pa-rum pum pum pum
Me and my drum

This gave me chills when hearing it on the radio as a kid.

It still does... and tears in my eyes.

I literally just heard the tail end of this on the radio and got chills. Had to come hear it from the beginning.

As a kid in the early seventies, I remember hearing this when I was in the 1st grade and trying hard not to cry. This has always been my favorite version.

same here. . . I heard it throughout my childhood in the '70s (grade K - 7)
