Twelve Days of Christmas
Lyrics

On the twelfth day of Christmas,
my true love gave to me…
12 Drummers Drumming
11 Pipers Piping
10 Lords-a-Leaping
9 Ladies Dancing
8 Maids-a-Milking
7 Swans-a-Swimming
6 Geese-a-Laying
5 Golden Rings (gold rings)
4 Colly Birds
3 French Hens
2 Turtle Doves
And a Partridge in a Pear Tree.

NOTE: Though it is commonly mispronounced and wrongly written today, the 4th day of Christmas is a colly bird. This is an old nickname for a common European blackbird.
