Christmas Carols

Patapan
original words: Bernard de la Monnoyne, c 1700
music: traditional Burgundian

 

William, beat your drum with joy!
Sound your fife now, Robin boy!
While your instruments you play,
Tu-re lu-re-lu, pata patapan,
While your instruments you play,
We shall sing Noel so gay.

People in the days of yore
Did the King of Kings adore;
While your instruments you play,
Tu-re lu-re-lu, pata patapan,
While your instruments you play,
We must do the same today.

Like mankind and mankind's Lord
Fife and drum are in accord;
While your instruments you play,
Tu-re lu-re-lu, pata patapan,
While your instruments you play,
Let us dance and sing today.
