Little Drummer Boy

This song is by Emmylou Harris and appears on the album Light Of The Stable (1979).

(Katherine Davis - Henri Onerati - Harry Simeone)

Come they told me
Ra-pa-pam-pam
Our newborn King to see
Ra-pa-pam-pam.

Our finest gifts we bring
Ra-pa-pam-pam
To lay before the King
Ra-pa-pam-pam.

Ra-pa-pam-pam
Ra-pa-pam-pam
So to honor him
Ra-pa-pam-pam
When we come.

--- Instrumental ---

Baby Jesus
Ra-pa-pam-pam
I am a poor boy too
Ra-pa-pam-pam.

I have no gift to bring
Ra-pa-pam-pam
That's fit to give a King
Ra-pa-pam-pam.

Ra-pa-pam-pam
Ra-pa-pam-pam
Shall I play for you
Ra-pa-pam-pam
On my drum.

Mother Marry nodded
Ra-pa-pam-pam
The ox and lamb kept time
Ra-pa-pam-pam.

I played my drum for him
Ra-pa-pam-pam
I played my best for him
Ra-pa-pam-pam.

Ra-pa-pam-pam
Ra-pa-pam-pam
Then he smiled at me
Ra-pa-pam-pam
Me and my drum...
