The 12 Days of Christmas Lyrics


On the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me, a partridge in a pear tree.
On the second day of Christmas my true love gave to me, two turtle doves and a partridge in a pear tree.
On the fourth day of Christ--
On the third day of Christmas my true love gave to me, five golden rings
four calling birds, three french hens, two turtle doves and a partridge in a pear tree

On the ninth day of Christmas, On the eighth day of Christmas
my true love gave to me my true love gave to me
9 ladies dancing 8 maids a milking
8 maids a milking 7 swans a swimming
7 swans a swimming 6 geese a laying
6 geese a laying 5---
Better not shout, you better not cry, you better not-- in a pear tree

On the ninth-- NO!
On the eighth-- NO!

On the seventh day of Christmas deck the halls
my true love gave to me with boughs of holly
7 swans a swimming here we come a wassailing
6 geese a laying among the leaves so---
5 golden rings Faaa-laaa-la-la-la
4 calling birds
3 french hens
2 turtle doves here we come a wassailing
The boar's head in hand bear I among the leaves so green
Bedeck'd with bays

and partridge in a pear tree

On the eleventh day of Christmas my true love gave to me
11 pipers piping (ding)
10 lords a leaping (dong)
9 ladies dancing (ding)
8 maids a milking (dong)
7 swans a swimming (ding)
6 geese a laying (dong)
5 golden rings
4 calling birds
3 french hens
2 turtle doves
and--rudolph the red nosed reindeer!

On the twelfth day of Christmas my true love gave to me--

I have a little dradle, I made it out of clay, and when it's dry and ready, my dradle I shall play
Oh dradle... dradle... dradle...(sorry)

On the twelfth day of Christmas my true love gave to me--

doo doo do do doot dooooooo-(do de do de do de do de do de)
doo doo do do doot dooooooo-(do de do de do de do de do de)

On the twelfth day my true love gave to me
12 drummers drumming like olympus upon the serengeti
11 pipers piping, 10 lords a leaping

9 ladies dancing they were dancing for meeee
8 maids a milking they were milking just for me

I had Christmas down in Africa
I had Christmas down in Africa
I had Christmas down in Africa (5 golden rings)
I had Christmas down in Africa (5 golden rings)
I had Christmas down in Africa (5 golden rings)
couldnt take the halls into the things we never had

doo doo do do doot dooooooo-(do de do de do de do de do de)
doo doo do do doot dooooooo-(do de do de do de do de do de)
partridge in a big pear tree-(do de do de do de do de do de)
partridge in a big pear tree

"The 12 Days Of Christmas"

On the 1st day of Christmas my true love gave to me
A partridge in a pear tree
On the 2nd day of Christmas my true love gave to me
2 turtle doves and a partridge in a pear tree

On the 4th day of Chris

On the 3rd day of Christmas my true love gave to me
5 golden rings!
4 calling birds, 3 french hens, 2 turtle doves
And a partridge in a pear tree

On the 9th day of Christmas my true love gave to me
(On the 8th day of Christmas my true love gave to me)
9 ladies dancing, 8 ladies dancing
(8 maids a-milking, 7 maids a-milking)
7 ladies dancing, 6 ladies dancing
(6 maids a-milking)
5!
Better not shout, you better not cry
You better not, in a pear tree

On the 9th
No!
On the 8th
No!

On the 7th day of Christmas my true love gave to me
(Deck the halls with boughs of holly)
7 swans a-swimming, 6 geese a-laying
(Here we come a-wassailing, among the leaves so)
5 golden rings!
(Fa la la la)

4 calling birds, 3 french hens, 2 turtle doves
(Here we come a-wassailing among the leaves so green)
The boar's head in hand bear I bedeck'd with bays
And partridge in a pear tree

On the 11th day of Christmas my true love gave to me
11 pipers piping, 10 lords a-leaping
(Ding, dong)
9 ladies dancing, 8 maids a-milking
(Ding, dong)
7 swans a swimming, 6 geese a laying
(Ding, dong)
5 golden rings, 4 calling birds
3 french hens, 2 turtle doves
And Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer!

On the 12th day of Christmas my true love gave to me
I have a little dreidel, I made it out of clay
And when it's dry and ready, a dreidel I shall play
Oh dreidel, dreidel, dreidel
Sorry...

On the 12th day of Christmas my true love gave to me

On the 12th day my true love gave to me
12 drummers drumming like Olympus upon the Serengeti
11 pipers piping, 10 lords a-leaping!

9 ladies dancing they were dancing for me
8 maids a-milking, they were milking just for me
I had Christmas down in Africa
I had Christmas down in Africa

I had Christmas down in Africa
(5 golden rings!)
I had Christmas down in Africa
(5 golden rings!)
I had Christmas down in Africa
(5 golden rings!)
Gonna deck the halls and do the things we never had

Partridge in a big pear tree
Partridge in a big pear tree

My choir is attempting to do this and I am completely terrified. This is so complicated, and they do it so well!
