Come, they told me, parum pum pum,
A new born King to see, parum pum pum,
Our finest gifts we bring, parum pum pum,
To lay before the King, parum pum pum,
Rum pum pum, rum pum pum.
So to honour Him, parum pum pum,
When we come.

Baby Jesus, parum pum pum,
I am a poor boy too, parum pum pum,
I have no gift to bring, parum pum pum,
That’s fit to give our King, parum pum pum,
Rum pum pum, rum pum pum.
Shall I play for you, parum pum pum
On my drum?

Mary nodded parum pum pum,
The Ox and Lamb kept time, parum pum pum,
I played my drum for Him, parum pum pum,
I played my best for Him, parum pum pum,
Rum pum pum, rum pum pum.
Then He smiled at me, parum pum pum,
Me and my drum.
