On the first day of Christmas,
My true love gave to me,
A conch shell from the Caribbean Sea

On the second day of Christmas,
My true love gave to me,
Two Sea Gulls,
And a conch shell from the Caribbean Sea

On the third day of Christmas,
My true love gave to me,
Three Albatross,
Two Sea Gulls,
And a conch shell from the Caribbean Sea

On the fourth day of Christmas,
My true love gave to me,
Four Pelicans,
Three Albatross,
Two Sea Gulls,
And a conch shell from the Caribbean Sea

On the fifth day of Christmas,
My true love gave to me,
Five Casks of Rum....
Four Pelicans,
Three Albatross,
Two Sea Gulls,
And a conch shell from the Caribbean Sea

On the sixth day of Christmas,
My true love gave to me,
Six Osprey diving,
Five Casks of Rum....
Four Pelicans,
Three Albatross,
Two Sea Gulls,
And a conch shell from the Caribbean Sea

On the seventh day of Christmas,
My true love gave to me,
Seven Macaws a' talking,
Six Osprey diving,
Five Casks of Rum....
Four Pelicans,
Three Albatross,
Two Sea Gulls,
And a conch shell from the Caribbean Sea

On the eighth day of Christmas,
My true love gave to me,
Eight Rasta's smoking,
Seven Macaws a' talking,
Six Osprey diving,
Five Casks of Rum....
Four Pelicans,
Three Albatross,
Two Sea Gulls,
And a conch shell from the Caribbean Sea

On the ninth day of Christmas,
My true love gave to me,
Nine Ladies Limboing,
Eight Rasta's smoking,
Seven Macaws a' talking,
Six Osprey diving,
Five Casks of Rum....
Four Pelicans,
Three Albatross,
Two Sea Gulls,
And a conch shell from the Caribbean Sea

On the tenth day of Christmas,
My true love gave to me,
Ten Longboarder's surfing,
Nine Ladies Limboing,
Eight Rasta's smoking,
Seven Macaws a' talking,
Six Osprey diving,
Five Casks of Rum....
Four Pelicans,
Three Albatross,
Two Sea Gulls,
And a conch shell from the Caribbean Sea

On the eleventh day of Christmas,
My true love gave to me,
Eleven Trop Rock Artists,
Ten Longboarder's surfing,
Nine Ladies Limboing,
Eight Rasta's smoking,
Seven Macaws a' talking,
Six Osprey diving,
Five Casks of Rum....
Four Pelicans,
Three Albatross,
Two Sea Gulls,
And a conch shell from the Caribbean Sea

On the twelfth day of Christmas,
My true love gave to me,
Twelve Steel Panner's Panning,
Eleven Trop Rock Artists,
Ten Longboarder's surfing,
Nine Ladies Limboing,
Eight Rasta's smoking,
Seven Macaws a' talking,
Six Osprey diving,
Five Casks of Rum....
Four Pelicans,
Three Albatross,
Two Sea Gulls,
And a conch shell from the Caribbean Sea
