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!

On the sixth day of christmas
My true love gave to me . . .
Six geese a layin'
Five golden rings!
Four calling birds
Three french hens
Two turtle doves

My true love gave to me . . .
Seven swans a swimmin'
Six geese a layin'
Five golden rings!

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 milkin'
Seven swans a swimmin'
Six geese a layin'
Five golden rings!
Four calling birds
Three french hens

Seven swans a swimmin'
Six geese a layin'

Four calling birds
Three french hens

And a partridge in a pear tree!

On the eleventh day of christmas
My true love gave to me . . .
Eleven lords a leapin'
Ten ladies dancin'
Nine pipers pipin'
Eight maids a milkin'
Seven swans a swimmin'
Six geese a layin'
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 drummin'
Eleven lords a leapin'
Ten ladies dancin'
Nine pipers pipin'
Eight maids milkin'
Seven swans a swimmin'
Six geese a layin'
Five golden rings!
Four calling birds
Three french hens
Two turtle doves
