Twelve Days Of Christmas
 
On the first day of Christmas,
My true love sent to me
A partridge in a pear tree.
      
On the second day of Christmas,
My true love sent to me
Two turtle doves,
And a partridge in a pear tree.
      
On the third day of Christmas,
My true love sent to me
Three French hens,
Two turtle doves,
And a partridge in a pear tree.
      
On the fourth day of Christmas,
My true love sent to me
Four calling birds,
Three French hens,
Two turtle doves,
And a partridge in a pear tree.
      
On the fifth day of Christmas,
My true love sent to me
Five golden rings
Four calling birds,
Three French hens,
Two turtle doves,
And a partridge in a pear tree.
      
...Six geese a-laying...
...Seven swans a-swimming...
...Eight maids a-milking...
...Nine ladies dancing...
...Ten Lords a-leaping…
...Eleven pipers piping...
...Twelve drummers drumming…
