Little Drummer Boy

I'm one of those people who doesn't believe Christmas music should be played until AFTER Thanksgiving. Same goes for Christmas displays in stores and lights on homes. However, the stores don't share my sentiment, nor do local radio stations because this morning I heard Christmas songs on the radio. However, it just so happened the first song I heard was "Little Drummer Boy." MY FAVORITE CHRISTMAS SONG OF ALL TIME. I mean, I really, really love this song and I have ever since I can remember. Hearing it made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside and filled me with Christmas spirit, so the Grinch inside is gone and I'm ready to embrace the season...bring it on! :)

Little Drummer Boy
(also known as 'Carol of the Drum')

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 the 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.
