Christmas ornaments

The Little Tenant Girl

Come they told me, pa rum pum pum pum    
The landlord wants his fee, pa rum pum pum pum
Our smallest change we bring, pa rum pum pum pum
To lay before this thing, pa rum pum pum pum, rum pum pum pum, rum pum pum pum,
When we come.

tree ornamentOh dear landlord, pa rum pum pum pum
I am a poor boy too, pa rum pum pum pum
I have no rent to pay, pa rum pum pum pum
that will allow me stay, pa rum pum pum pum, rum pum pum pum, rum pum pum pum,
Shall I sing for you, pa rum pum pum pum,
with my tongue?

The sherriff nodded, pa rum pum pum pum
The court and cops kept time, pa rum pum pum pum
I sang my song for him, pa rum pum pum pum
I sang my best for him, pa rum pum pum pum, rum pum pum pum, rum pum pum pum.

Then he said to me, pa rum pum pum pum
You can't stay here free, pa rum pum pum pum
Out on your ass you be, pa rum pum pum pum
I begged and pled to him, pa rum pum pum pum
He had no sympathy pa rum pum pum pum, rum pum pum pum, rum pum pum pum.

Then he said to me, pa rum pum pum pum
Get out you bum!
rum pum pum pum
rum pum pum pum
