Willie take your little drum
Robin take your flute and come
When we hear the tune we play
Te-re-lu-re-lu pat-a-pat-a-pan
When we hear the tune you play,
how can any one be glum?

When the men of olden days
Gave the King of Kings their praise
They had pipes on which to play
Te-re-lu-re-lu pat-a-pat-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
Te-re-lu-re-lu pat-a-pat-pan
Flute and drum together play
As we sing on Christmas Day
