12 Days of Christmas, Isaiah Style

Isaiah has his own way of singing and he will always tell us that he is a good "seener," which we know to be true. This morning he started in on the 12 Days of Christmas but his version is a bit different than the normal version. Some of the items changed as he was going back down from the higher numbers. I have those changes in parentheses.

On the 1st day of Christmas, my true love gave to me... A par pair Christmas pair of trees.
On the 2nd day of Christmas, my true love gave to me...Two turtle ducks and a par pair Christmas pair of trees.
On the 3rd day of Christmas, my true love gave to me...Three (Christmas trees) French chins, two turtle ducks, and a par pair Christmas pair of trees.
On the 4th day of Christmas, my true love gave to me...Four (ginger carrots) calling birds, three French chins, two turtle ducks, and a par pair Christmas pair of trees.
On the 5th day of Christmas, my true love gave to me...Five golden rings, four calling birds, three French chins, two turtle ducks, and a par pair Christmas pair of trees.
On the 6th day of Christmas, my true love gave to me...Six talking wings, five golden rings, four calling birds, three French chins, two turtle ducks, and a par pair Christmas pair of trees.
On the 7th day of Christmas, my true love gave to me...Seven (hawking birds) golfing birds, six talking wings, five golden rings, four calling birds, three French chins, two turtle ducks, and a par pair Christmas pair of trees.
On the 8th day of Christmas, my true love gave to me...Eight Julie and Collins, seven golfing birds, six talking wings, five golden rings, four calling birds, three French chins, two turtle ducks, and a par pair Christmas pair of trees.
On the 9th day of Christmas, my true love gave to me...Nine swinging barrels, eight Julie and Collins, seven golfing birds, six talking wings, five golden rings, four calling birds, three French chins, two turtle ducks, and a par pair Christmas pair of trees.
On the 10th day of Christmas, my true love gave to me...Ten twinkling callings, nine swinging barrels, eight Julie and Collins, seven golfing birds, six talking wings, five golden rings, four calling birds, three French chins, two turtle ducks, and a par pair Christmas pair of trees.
On the 11th day of Christmas, my true love gave to me...Eleven lamps a lighting, ten twinkling callings, nine swinging barrels, eight Julie and Collins, seven golfing birds, six talking wings, five golden rings, four calling birds, three French chins, two turtle ducks, and a par pair Christmas pair of trees.
On the 12th day of Christmas, my true love gave to me...Twelve moms and dads, eleven lamps a lighting, ten twinkling callings, nine swinging barrels, eight Julie and Collins, seven golfing birds, six talking wings, five golden rings, four calling birds, three French chins, two turtle ducks, and a par pair Christmas pair of trees.....

The "twinkling callings" are telephones ringing (had to ask him). No clue on who or what "Julie and Collins" are. And, when singing the song, you absolutely have to use the correct inflection when singing "Five golden rings..." Otherwise, he will stop the song and correct you. "No, no, no - it goes wike dis..."
