Come they told me, pa rub a dum dum 
A new born King to see, pa rub a dum dum 
Our finest gifts we bring, pa rub a dum dum 
To lay before the King, pa rub a dum dum, 
rub a dum dum, rub a dum dum, 

So to honor Him, pa rub a dum dum, 
When we come. 

Little Baby, pa rub a dum dum 
I am a poor boy too, pa rub a dum dum 
I have no gift to bring, pa rub a dum dum 
That's fit to give the King, pa rub a dum dum, 
rub a dum dum, rub a dum dum, 

Shall I play for you, pa rub a dum dum, 
On my drum? 

Mary nodded, pa rub a dum dum 
The ox and lamb kept time, pa rub a dum dum 
I played my drum for Him, pa rub a dum dum 
I played my best for Him, pa rub a dum dum, 
rub a dum dum, rub a dum dum, 

Then He smiled at me, pa rub a dum dum 
Me and my drum.
