Willie, Take Your Little Drum (Pat a Pan) – Piano Tutorial, Guitar Chords and Tabs, Notes, Keys, Sheet Music

Carol, France.

This is a Christmas carol from France, originally written in Burgundian by Bernard de La Monnoye and published in 1720. Its title is onomatopoetic, mimicking the sound of the drums of shepherds gathering around the birthplace of Jesus Christ. Apparently, the same shepherds also play the flute, as indicated in the lyric “tu-re-lu-re-lu“.

The original title of this carol was “Guillô, Pran Ton Tamborin” (“Willie, Take Your Little Drum”).
