What'd ya give!?

I got the old man a personalized engraved Rawlings Gold Glove First Baseman's mitt.

Sweet, played catch in the front yard -- threw 4-seam/2-seam BP fastballs, sliders, and knucklers.

"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.

The first verse runs:

On the first day of Christmas my true love sent to me a partridge in a pear tree

The second verse:

On the second day of Christmas my true love sent to me Two turtle doves and a partridge in a pear tree

The third verse begins to show some metrical variance, as explained below:

On the third day of Christmas my true love sent to me Three French hens two turtle doves and a partridge in a pear tree

...and so forth, until the last verse:

On the twelfth day of Christmas my true love sent to me Twelve drummers drumming eleven pipers piping ten lords a' leaping nine ladies dancing eight maids a' milking seven swans a' swimming six geese a' laying five gold rings four colly-birds three French hens two turtle doves and a partridge in a pear tree
