Almost, The - Little Drummer Boy Lyrics

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
Rum pum pum pum, rum pum pum pum

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

Come they told me, pa rum pum pum pum
Me and my drum

    *”When I was a young boy,* -my father took me into the city. To see a marching band. He said son when you grow up, would you be the savior of the broken, the beaten, and the damned. He said will you, defeat them, your demons, and all the non believers, the plans that they have made. Because one day I’ll leave you a phantom to lead you in the summer, to join- *the black parade.”*

    @scrumdidilyumpsish It's definitely a fail on Ransom's part, the instrumentation is so bare for this song that its blatantly obvious when they aren't visually there. lol. Music Video 101 fail.

  98. LNOL

    @jschristian44 So? This isn't about the Sermon on the Mount. This is about the little boy laying in a feeding trough wrapped in rags. Your question was whether the drummer boy was referring to being poor in material possessions or poor in spirit. I answered your question. I'm not sure why you're bringing the Sermon on the Mount into this.
