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
Me and my drum

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 our 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
On my drum, yeah

Drummer boy, (drummer boy)
Won't you play that drum (play that drum)
Drummer boy, (drummer boy)
All the king that's gone
Drummer boy (ooh yeah)
Play the rum pum pum pum (pum pum)
Drummer boy, (drummer boy)
Play that drum (would you play that 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
Me and my drum
Come on

Drummer boy, (drummer boy)
Won't you play that drum (won't play that drum, yeah)
Drummer boy, (drummer boy)
All the king that's gone (little pum pum pum pum)
Drummer boy (drummer boy)
Little rum pum pum pum (rum pum pum pum)
Drummer boy, (drummer boy)
Play that drum (play that drum)
Rum pum pum pum
