The Twelve Days of 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
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
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
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
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
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
Four calling birds
Three French hens
Two turtle doves
And a Partridge in a pear tree.

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 golden rings
Four calling birds
Three French hens
Two turtle doves
And a Partridge in a pear tree.

On the twelfth 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 golden rings
Four calling birds
Three French hens
Two turtle doves
And a Partridge in a pear tree.
