Drummer Boy (SOTW #12)

December 15, 2008 | Song of the Week


Christmas is in 2 weeks!!! Wow! So, we’ve decided it’s only appropriate to grace this page with some good ol’ Christmas music (done “two seconds away” style, of course.) About 3 weeks ago we asked for requests for favorite Christmas music and although we can’t do them all, here is one that Carolyn requested.

Tim had a lot of fun with all the percussion on this. We busted out some old school vintage drum machine sounds since we don’t actually have drums. This is also the first time Patrick busted out the hammered dulcimer. Enjoy!

“Drummer Boy”

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

So to honor Him, pa rum pum pum pum,
When we come.

Little Baby, pa rum pum pum pum
I am a poor boy too, pa rum pum pum pum
I have no gift to bring, pa rum pum pum pum
That’s fit to give the King, pa rum pum pum pum,
rum pum pum pum, rum pum pum pum,

Shall I play for you, pa rum pum pum pum,
On my drum?

Mary nodded, pa rum pum pum pum
The ox and lamb kept time, pa rum pum pum pum
I played my drum for Him, pa rum pum pum pum
I played my best for Him, pa rum pum pum pum,
rum pum pum pum, rum pum pum pum,

Then He smiled at me, pa rum pum pum pum
Me and my drum.
