Lyrics:-

On the first day of Christmas my true love sent to me
A parteridge in a pear tree.
(Two turtle doves)

On the second day of Christmas my true love sent to me
Two turtle doves
And a parteridge in a pear tree.
(Three French Hens)

On the third day of Christmas my true love sent to me
Three French Hens
Two turtle doves
And a parteridge in a pear tree.
(Four Colly birds)

On the fourth day of Christmas my true love sent to me
Four Colly birds
Three French Hens
Two turtle doves
And a parteridge in a pear tree.
(Five gold rings)

On the fifth day of Christmas my true love sent to me
Five gold rings
Four Colly birds
Three French Hens
Two turtle doves
And a parteridge in a pear tree.
(Six geese a-laying)

On the sixth day of Christmas my true love sent to me
Six geese a-laying
Five gold rings
Four Colly birds
Three French Hens
Two turtle doves
And a parteridge in a pear tree.
(Seven swans a-swimming)

On the seventh day of Christmas my true love sent to me
Seven swans a-swimming
Six geese a-laying
Five gold rings
Four Colly birds
Three French Hens
Two turtle doves
And a parteridge in a pear tree.
(Eight maids a-milking)

On the eighth day of Christmas my true love sent to me
Eight maids a-milking
Seven swans a-swimming
Six geese a-laying
Five gold rings
Four Colly birds
Three French Hens
Two turtle doves
And a parteridge in a pear tree.
(Nine ladies dancing)

On the ninth day of Christmas my true Love sent to me
Nine ladies dancing
Eight maids a-milking
Seven swans a-swimming
Six geese a-laying
Five gold rings
Four Colly birds
Three French Hens
Two turtle doves
And a parteridge in a pear tree.
(Ten lords a-leaping)

On the tenth day of Christmas my true love sent to me
Ten lords a-leaping
Nine ladies dancing
Eight maids a-milking
Seven swans a-swimming
Six geese a-laying
Five gold rings
Four Colly birds
Three French Hens
Two turtle doves
And a parteridge in a pear tree.
(Eleven pipers piping)

On the eleventh day of Christmas my true love sent 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 gold rings
Four Colly birds
Three French Hens
Two turtle doves
And a parteridge in a pear tree.
(Twelve drummers drumming)

On the twelfth day of Christmas my true love sent 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 gold rings,
Four Colly birds,
Three French hens,
Two turtle doves,
And a parteridge in a pear tree.
