Default Re: Christmas Songs.

And an Australian take on the same song (this video unfortunately has 2 recordings of it overlapping):

There's also a longer version of the song, which includes a final verse as follows:

On the twelfth day of Christmas, my true love sent to me
Twelve goannas going, Eleven snakes a-sliding,
Ten dingoes dashing, Nine wombats waddling,
Eight koalas clinging, Seven emus running,
Six ‘roos a-jumping, Five opals black,
Four great galahs, Three parakeets,
Two cockatoos, And a kookaburra up a gum tree
