Lyrics

Alvin:
Aheh-heh-heh, where's my part, Dave?

Dave:
You're not singing, Alvin.

Alvin:
Excuse me?!

Dave:
This song is very special to me, Alvin.
And, well, I just don't want anything to go wrong.

Alvin:
Then, what do I do?

Dave:
You can play the drum.

Alvin:
But, that's no part!

Dave:
Take it or leave it.

Alvin:
Take it.

UCLA Chamber Singers:
Come they told me
Pa-rum-pum-pum-pum
A new born King to see
Pa-rum-pum-pum-pum

Dave:
Sh, no-not yet!

UCLA Chamber Singers:
Our finest gifts we bring
Pa-rum-pum-pum-pum

To lay before the king
Pa-rum-pum-pum-pum
Rum-pum-pum-pum
Rum-pum-pum-pum

Dave:
Alvin!

UCLA Chamber Singers:
So to honor Him
Pa-rum-pum-pum-pum
When we come

Little baby
Pa-rum-pum-pum-pum
I am a poor boy-

Dave:
Alvin! Quit it!

UCLA Chamber Singers:
-too, pa-rum-pum-pum-pum
I have no gift to bring
Pa-rum-pum-pum-pum
That's fit to give our King-

Dave:
Alvin! I'm warning you!

UCLA Chamber Singers:
-Pa-rum-pum-pum-pum
Rum-pum-pum-pum
Rum-pum-pum-pum

Shall I play for you
Pa-rum-pum-pum-pum
Pa-rum-pum-pum-pum
On my drum

Dave:
Al-! No, no, I promised myself
I wouldn't get angry, wouldn't lose my temper
But Alvin, you've left me no choice!

Alvin:
You're gonna let me sing?

Dave:
Get me security.

Alvin:
You're calling security o-on your own son?!

Security:
You're gonna have to wait outside, son.

Alvin:
I-I-I was kidding! Can't you take a joke?!
Let me in! Let me in!

Dave:
Aheheheh, sorry, everybody!
I-It won't happen again, sorry!

UCLA Chamber Singers:
Mary nodded
Pa-rum-pum-pum-pum
The ox and lamb kept time
Pa-rum-pum-pum-pum

I played my drum for Him
Pa-rum-pum-pum-pum
I played my best for Him
Pa-rum-pum-pum-pum
Rum-pum-pum-pum
Rum-pum-pum-pum

Then He smiled at me
Pa-rum-pum-pum-pum
Me and my drum

Alvin:
Hahahah, you forgot to lock the side-door!

Dave:
Knock it off, Alvin! I mean it!
This is my alma mater! Stop it!
You're ruining this for me!
Alvin! Give me those drumsticks!
