"The Twelve Days of Christmas" is a cumulative song, meaning that each verse is built on top of the previous verses. There are twelve verses, each describing a gift given by "my true love" on one of the twelve days of Christmas. There are many variations in the lyrics; they are discussed below. The lyrics given here are from Austin's 1909 publication that first established the current form of the carol.[2] The first three verses run, in full, as follows:

 
On the First day of Christmas my true love sent to me
Partridge in a Pear Tree.


On the Second day of Christmas my true love sent to me
Two Turtle Doves

and a Partridge in a Pear Tree.

On the Third day of Christmas my true love sent to me
Three French Hens,[3]


Two Turtle Doves
and a Partridge in a Pear Tree.

Subsequent verses follow the same pattern, each adding one new gift and repeating all the earlier gifts, so that each verse is one line longer than its predecessor:

Calling Birds

Gold Rings

Geese-a-Laying

Swans-a-Swimming

Maids-a-Milking

Ladies Dancing

10 Lords-a-Leaping

 (or Ladies Leaping)
11 Pipers Piping
12 Drummers Drumming
