The Little Drummer Boy
by Johnny Cash

Come, they told me
Our newborn King to see
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)

This, is to honor Him (pa-rum pum pum pum)
When we come (pa-rum pum pum pum)

Baby Jesus
I am a poor boy too
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)

But may I play for you (pa-rum pum pum pum)
On my drum? (pa-rum pum pum pum)

The Mother Mary nodded
The Ox and Lamb kept time
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 (pa-rum pum pum pum)
