Pat a pan

Willie, bring your little drum,
Robin take your flute and come!
When we hear the music bright
we will sing Noel this night,
When we hear the fife and drum,
Christmas should be frolicsome.

Thus the men of olden days
for the King of Kings to praise,
When they heard the fife and drum,
ture-lure-lu, pata-pata-pan,
When they hear the fife and drum,
sure, our children won’t be dumb.

God and man are now become
more at one than fife and drum.
When you hear the fife and drum,
ture-lure-lu, pata-pata-pan,
When you hear the fife and drum,
dance and make the village hum.
