12 Days A Christmas Lyrics

On the first day of Christmas

My true love sent to me

A partridge in a pear tree

On the second day of Christmas

My true love sent to me

Two turtle-doves

And a partridge in a pear tree

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

On the fourth day of Christmas

My true love sent 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 sent to me

Five golden rings (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 sent to me

Six geese a laying

Five golden rings (five golden rings)

Four calling birds

Three French hens

Two turtle-doves

And a partridge in a pear tree

On the seventh day of Christmas

My true love sent to me

Seven swans a swimming

Six geese a-laying

Five golden rings (five golden rings)

Four calling birds

Three French hens

Two turtle-doves

And a partridge in a pear tree

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 golden rings (five golden rings)

Four calling birds

Three French hens

Two turtle-doves

And a partridge in a pear tree

On the ninth 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 golden rings (five golden rings)

Four calling 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

Seven swans a-swimming

Six geese a-laying

Five golden rings (five golden rings)

Four calling birds

Three French hens

Two turtle-doves

And a partridge in a pear tree

On the 11th day of Christmas

My true love sent to me

I sent 11 pipers piping

Ten lords a-leaping

Nine ladies dancing

Eight maids a-milking

Seven swans a-swimming

Six geese a-laying

Five golden rings (five golden rings)

Four calling birds

Three French hens

Two turtle-doves

And a partridge in a pear tree

On the 12th day of Christmas

My true love sent to me

12 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 golden rings (five golden rings)

Four calling birds

Three French hens

Two turtle-doves

And a partridge in a pear tree

And a partridge in a pear tree
