Pat-A-Pan/While Shepherds Watched (Bing Crosby)

Willie, take your little drum
Robin bring your fife and come
When we play the fife and drum

Tu-re-lu-re-lu
Pat-a-pat-a-pan
When we play the fife and drum
Christmas shall very joyful be

Like the men of olden days
Who the king of kings did praise
With the sound of fife and drum

Tu-re-lu-re-lu
Pat-a-pat-a-pan
With the sound of fife and drum
To the Lord we shall bring our praise

***

While shepherds watched their sheep by night
Glad tidings brought and angel bright
How great their joy
Joy Joy Joy
Glory to God in Heaven on high

'Fear not at all,' He said to them
'Jesus is born in Bethlehem.'
How great their joy
Joy Joy Joy
Glory to God in Heaven on high

Jesus we hasten to adore
Grant us thy blessing ever more
How great their joy
Joy Joy Joy
Glory to God in Heaven on high
