The Twelve Days of Christmas Lyrics



The Twelve Days of Christmas Lyrics

“The Twelve Days of Christmas” is an English Christmas carol that enumerates each day by the gifts given on each of the twelve days of Christmas.

Frederic Austin was known to popularize the arrangement of the song we know today in 1909.

 [Verse 1]

On the first day of Christmas, my true love sent to me

A partridge in a pear tree


[Verse 2]

On the second day of Christmas, my true love sent to me

Two turtle doves, and

A partridge in a pear tree


[Verse 3]

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


[Verse 4]

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


[Verse 5]

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


[Verse 6]

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


[Verse 7]

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


[Verse 8]

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


[Verse 9]

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


[Verse 10]

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


[Verse 11]

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


[Verse 12]

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
