Blog Caroling~ "Little Drummer Boy"


"The Little Drummer Boy"
Words and Music by:

The song was actually transcribed from an original Czech  Carol in 1941.
Since the orginal came out, many have rewrittend and recorded the song.


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

Little Baby, pa rum pum pum pum
I am a poor boy too, pa rum pum pum pum
I have no gift to bring, pa rum pum pum pum
That's fit to give the King, pa rum pum pum pum,
rum pum pum pum, rum pum pum pum,
Shall I play for you, pa rum pum pum pum,
On my drum?

Mary nodded, pa rum pum pum pum
The ox and lamb kept time, pa rum pum pum pum
I played my drum for Him, pa rum pum pum pum
I played my best for Him, pa rum pum pum pum,
rum pum pum pum, rum pum pum pum,
Then He smiled at me, pa rum pum pum pum
Me and my drum.



Ever since I was a little girl "Little Drummer Boy" has always been my favorite Christmas Carol.  So in the sprit of Christmas, I am posting this to join in the Footnote Maven and the other blogging caroler's.  After I became a mom, my oldest became a drummer when he was in 5th grade.  I can remember thinking to myself... "He don't have a music bone in his body".  Well, I was very happy when he proved me wrong.  Michael was awesome at the drums.  Now when I hear this song, it makes me think of him.
