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 third day of Christmas my true love gave to me
Three french hens, two turtle doves 
And a partridge in a pear tree

On the fourth day of Christmas my true love gave 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 gave to me
Five golden rings
Four calling birds, three french hens, 
Two turtle doves and a partridge in a pear tree

What's a partridge, and what's a pear tree?
Well I don't know so please don't ask me
But I can bet those are terrible gifts to give

On the sixth day of Christmas my true love gave to me
Six geese a laying, five golden rings,
Four calling birds, three french hens, 
Two turtle doves and a partridge in a pear tree

On the seventh day of Christmas my true love gave to me
Seven swans a swimming,
Six geese a laying, five golden rings,
Four calling birds, three french hens, 
Two turtle doves and a partridge in a pear tree

On the eighth day of Christmas my true love gave to me
Eight maids a milking, seven swans a swimming,
Six geese a laying, 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 my true love gave to me
Nine ladies dancing, 
Eight maids a milking, seven swans a swimming,
Six geese a laying,
Four calling birds, three french hens, 
Two turtle doves and a partridge in a pear tree

What's a partridge, and what's a pear tree?
Well I don't know so please don't ask me
But I can bet those are terrible gifts to give

On the tenth day of Christmas my true love gave to me
Ten lords a leaping, nine ladies dancing, 
Eight maids a milking, seven swans a swimming,
Six geese a laying, dof-men-gose-reens,
Four (clap-clap-clap), three french (pop!), 
Two (clap-clap) doves and a partridge in a pear tree

On the eleventh day of Christmas my true love gave to me
Eleven pipers piping,
Ten lords a leaping, nine ladies dancing, 
Eight maids a milking, seven swans a swimming,
Six geese a laying, five golden rings,
Four calling birds, three french hens, 
Two turtle doves and a partridge in a pear tree

On the twelfth day of Christmas my true love gave to me
Twelve drummers drumming eleven pipers piping,
Ten lords a leaping, nine ladies dancing, 
Eight maids a milking, seven swans a swimming,
Six geese a laying, five golden rings,
Four calling birds, three french hens, 
Two turtle doves and a partridge in a pear tree
