The Ten Days til Post-Trump: Day One

(Melody: “The Twelve Days of Christmas” with lyrics and music below)

On the first day til Post-Trump, my true love gave to me

A sweet card in a green tree.

*check in tomorrow for Day two of “The Ten Days til Post-Trump”–a little ditty to raise spirits and bring hope in this, the darkest of seasons (which is hard enough to endure without a maniac holding us all hostage from the White House). With thanks to http://www.ChristmasMusicSongs.com for the free sheet music!

“The Twelve Days of Christmas”

lyrics

[Verse 1]

On the first day of Christmas, my true love sent to me

A partridge in a pear tree

[Verse 2]

On the second day of Christmas, my true love sent to me

Two turtle doves, and

A partridge in a pear tree

[Verse 3]

On the third day of Christmas, my true love sent to me

Three French hens

Two turtle doves, and

A partridge in a pear tree

[Verse 4]

On the fourth day of Christmas, my true love sent to me

Four calling birds

Three French hens

Two turtle doves, and

A partridge in a pear tree

[Verse 5]

On the fifth day of Christmas, my true love sent to me

Five golden rings

Four calling birds

Three French hens

Two turtle doves, and

A partridge in a pear tree

[Verse 6]

On the sixth day of Christmas, my true love sent to me

Six geese a-laying

Five golden rings

Four calling birds

Three French hens

Two turtle doves, and

A partridge in a pear tree

[Verse 7]

On the seventh day of Christmas, my true love sent to me

Seven swans a-swimming

Six geese a-laying

Five golden rings

Four calling birds

Three French hens

Two turtle doves, and

A partridge in a pear tree

[Verse 8]

On the eighth day of Christmas, my true love sent to me

Eight maids a-milking

Seven swans a-swimming

Six geese a-laying

Five golden rings

Four calling birds

Three French hens

Two turtle doves, and

A partridge in a pear tree

[Verse 9]

On the ninth day of Christmas, my true love sent to me

Nine ladies dancing

Eight maids a-milking

Seven swans a-swimming

Six geese a-laying

Five golden rings

Four calling birds

Three French hens

Two turtle doves, and

A partridge in a pear tree

On the tenth day of Christmas, my true love sent to me

Ten lords a-leaping

Nine ladies dancing

Eight maids a-milking

Seven swans a-swimming

Six geese a-laying

Five golden rings

Four calling birds

Three French hens

Two turtle doves, and

A partridge in a pear tree

On the eleventh day of Christmas, my true love sent to me

Eleven pipers piping

Ten lords a-leaping

Nine ladies dancing

Eight maids a-milking

Seven swans a-swimming

Six geese a-laying

Five golden rings

Four calling birds

Three French hens

Two turtle doves, and

A partridge in a pear tree

[Verse 12]

On the twelfth day of Christmas, my true love sent to me

Twelve drummers drumming

Eleven pipers piping

Ten lords a-leaping

Nine ladies dancing

Eight maids a-milking

Seven swans a-swimming

Six geese a-laying

Five golden rings

Four calling birds

Three French hens

Two turtle doves, and

A partridge in a pear tree
