PAT-A-PAN

Willie, take your little drum,
Robin, take your flute and come;
When we hear the tune you play,
Tu-re-lu-re-lu, pat-a-pat-a-pan;
When we hear the tune you play,
How can anyone be glum?

When the men of olden days
Gave the King of Kings their praise;
They had pipes on which to play,
Tu-re-lu-re-lu, pat-a-pat-a-pan;
They had drums on which to play,
Full of joy on Christmas Day.

God and man this day become
Joined as one with flute and drum;
Let the happy tune play on,
Tu-re-lu-re-lu, pat-a-pat-a-pan;
Flute and drum play together
As we sing on Christmas day.
