The Twelve Days of Christmas Lyrics

[Verse 1]
On the first day of christmas my true love sent to me
A partridge in a pear tree

[Verse 2]
On the second day of christmas my true love sent to me
Two turtle doves, and
A partridge in a pear tree

[Verse 3]
On the third day of christmas my true love sent to me
Three french hens
Two turtle doves, and
A partridge in a pear tree

[Verse 4]
On the fourth day of christmas my true love sent to me
Four colly birds
Three french hens
Two turtle doves, and
A partridge in a pear tree

[Verse 5]
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 partridge in a pear tree

[Verse 6]
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 partridge in a pear tree

[Verse 7]
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 partridge in a pear tree

[Verse 8]
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 partridge in a pear tree

On the nineth 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 partridge in a pear tree

On the tenth day of christmas my true love sent to me
Ten lords a-leaping
Nine ladies dancing
Eight maids a-milking

Four colly birds
Three french hens
Two turtle doves, and
A partridge in a pear tree

[Verse 11]
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 partridge in a pear tree

[Verse 12]
On the twelth 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 partridge in a pear tree
