The Twelve Days of Christmas – The Lyrics

image

Memories of my childhood Christmas period still remain flesh,I still wonder why this is has not clear off. I still remember the different carol songs we sang at school,the end of the year parties,the anticipation of wearing new clothes on Christmas day,the brand new rubber eye glass and wrist watch,the new decoration in the parlour,the visitors in the house, the exciting journey to amusement park and lots of others. But this particular event still remains flesh, its was when I joined the school’s choir to sing a Christmas song- The twelve Days Of Christmas. I may not remember the whole event validly but I still remember something-the lyrics of the song. I am now in my twenties but I still know how to sing this song well, the voice might not be perfect though but I know the lyrics, perhaps that the only song I can sing completely,still wondering why I still remember it.
I still remember us ( the choir ) singing the song with so much passion and zeal, dressed in white shirts and black trousers for the guys and white tops and black skirts for the girls,I did remember we wore white gloves also – so colourful, you can imagine.
We were given different roles to play and a well drawn diagram on cardboard papers, to demonstrate the role we played. We sang the song with different voices and different keys. Nobody even care to know if we had a good voice,all we were just after was to sing and we were anxious to pour what we had memorize – What a choir.
We did sang well,even perfectly because us that were the comments and praises we got from friends, family and school teachers who watched us singing. They clapped and screamed at the end of the presentation.
I still remember Mummy told that she overheard was singing the song will sleeping sometime after that great day.
“Oya, let sing the 12 days of Christmas” was my regular words amongst my playmates during the Christmas holiday. What a Christmas to remember. Well, still flesh in my memory I bring to you the lyric of the Song Twelve Days Of Christmas. Read below
