Twelfth day of Christmas


Twelve for the twelve apostles
Eleven for the eleven that went to heaven
Ten for the ten commandments
Nine for the nine bright shiners
Eight for the April rainers
Seven for the seven stars in the sky
Six for the six proud walkers
Five for the symbols at your door
Four for the gospel-makers
Three the rivals
Two the lily-white boys covered all in green-o
One is one and all alone and evermore shall be it so
