“Little Drummer Boy”
Originally known as "Carol of the Drum" is a popular Christmas song written by the American classical music composer and teacher Katherine Kennicott Davis in 1941. It was recorded in 1955 by the Trapp Family Singers and further popularized by a 1958 recording by the Harry Simeone Chorale. This version was re-released successfully for several years and the song has been recorded many times since. In the lyrics the singer relates how, as a poor young boy, he was summoned by the Magi to the nativity where, without a gift for the infant Jesus, he played his drum with the Virgin Mary's approval, remembering "I played my best for Him" and "He smiled at me".

Kelly Clarkson of American Idol fame included her version of that fun Christmas song on her latest album, and featured it in her recent Christmas special on TV. It’s probably one of the songs that has been on almost every rock- or pop-oriented Christmas album through the years.
