lyrics

On the first day of Christmas I awoke to find a pear tree in my garden
Half my lawn had been dug up and there was a partridge sat in it

Two doves, three hens and four birds singing
So many strange presents from my dearest darling

Now I don't know what to do
I'm overwhelmed with birds
All these presents from my lover
But what the hell do I get her?

December 29th, I was presented with
Not one gold ring, two, three, four, five of the things

Next day, more birds, six geese, swans, day seven
Then 8 random lasses were trying to milk the chickens

Now I don't know what to do
I'm overwhelmed with birds
All these presents from my lover
But what the hell do I get her?

Next day was like a bloody festival
Nine ladies dancing, ten lords prancing to the pipes and drums

Now I don't know what to do
I'm overwhelmed with all of this
And I'm thinking next year
I'll just give Christmas a miss
