  • The first verse runs:

    On the first day of Christmas, my true love gave to me...
    A Partridge in a Pear Tree.
    The second verse:

    On the second day of Christmas, my true love gave to me...
    2 Turtle Doves
    And a Partridge in a Pear Tree.
    The third verse begins to show some metrical variance, as explained below:

    On the third day of Christmas, my true love gave to me...
    3 French Hens
    2 Turtle Doves
    And a Partridge in a Pear Tree.
    ...and so forth, until the last verse:

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

    11 Pipers Piping
    10 Lords-a-Leaping

    2 Turtle Doves
    And a Partridge in a Pear Tree.
