"The Twelve Days of Christmas" is a cumulative song, meaning that each verse is built on top of the previous verses. There are twelve verses, each describing a gift given by "my true love" on one of the twelve days of Christmas...and so forth, until the last verse:

“On the twelfth day of Christmas, My true love sent to me:
12. Twelve lords a-leaping
11. Eleven pipers piping
10. Ten ladies dancing
9. Nine drummers drumming
8. Eight maids’ a-milking
7. Seven swans a-swimming
6. Six geese a-laying,
5. Five gold rings
4. Four colly birds
3. Three French hens
2. Two turtle doves
1. And a partridge in a pear tree.

Yeah, that is such a catchy tune. Don’t you agree?
BUT…we are going to do this Shifter-Style.
Now, what in the dickens would a shifter give his true love?

All twelve days must be listed.
