Lyrics

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
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
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
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.
