The Andrews Sisters

The Andrews Sisters were a highly successful close harmony singing group of the swing and boogie-woogie eras. The group consisted of three sisters: contralto LaVerne Sophia Andrews (July 6, 1911 – May 8, 1967), soprano Maxene Angelyn Andrews (January 3, 1916 – October 21, 1995), and mezzo-soprano Patricia Marie "Patty" Andrews (born February 16, 1918). Throughout their long career, the sisters sold well over 75 million records (the last official count released by MCA Records in the mid-1970s). Their 1941 hit "Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy" can be considered an early example of rhythm and blues or jump blues. more »

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 turtledoves
And a partridge in a pear tree).

On the third day of Christmas, my true love sent to me
Three French hens,
(Two turtledoves)

(Four calling birds,)
Three French hens,

And a partridge in a pear tree.

(Five golden rings.) Five golden rings

And a partridge in a pear tree.

On the sixth day of Christmas, my true love sent to me
Six geese a-laying,

(On the seventh day of Christmas, my true love sent to me
Seven swans a-swimming,)

Eight maids a-milking,)

Ten lords a-leaping,
Nine ladies dancing,

Twelve drummers drumming,
Eleven pipers piping,
Ten lords a-leaping,
