Yesterday C-Note's Almanac Tomorrow



On the eleventh day of Christmas, my true love gave to me
Eleven pipers piping,
Ten lords a-leaping,
Nine ladies dancing,
Eight maids a-milking,
Seven swans a-swimming,
Six geese a-laying,
Five golden rings.
Four colly birds,
Three French hens,
Two turtle doves
And a partridge in a pear tree.
