The Partridge is stuck in a tree
What should we do?
Sing a song, get down one knee?
I could swear I did see two
Oops, sorry that was the Turtle Doves
Yes, there are two of those
Christmas is something everyone loves
Some Turkey and garlic of cloves?
Non! Say the French.
It has to be the trois hens
Don’t agree, be left on the bench
Watch them eat; only through your lens
No fear though,
The four birds outside are calling
Joined by a man, saying, ho, ho, ho
On a sleigh, in the sky, now falling
You throw him five golden rings
Santa needs presents too
Bet you didn’t know he can really sing
There’s so much more he can do
Work his magic on the geese
All six of them lay eggs
The golden ovals represent signs of peace
At this time; no one should ever need to beg
But the water is cold
And the seven swans keep swimming
Wrap up warm, don’t be bold
And your cupboards will be brimming
The eight maids will provide the milk
There’s plenty to go around
Frankincense is replaced by silk
Your footing is now solid, sound
As you celebrate this time of year
And watch nine ladies dance
The ones you love for and care
Surround us and join in the prance
On tiptoes so you can join in
In the circle with the ten lords leaping
Did they have a few shots of Gin?
No, its okay, its all part of the meeting
Moving and swaying to the piper’s tune
The eleven pipe as best they can
Sometime, later that afternoon
They heard the beat of the drumming man
Twelve to be exact
Drumming, drum, drum
Twelve days is a long time to keep up this act
So I say to you all; just go out and have some fun!
