On the first day of Christmas my true love sent to me

Two oven gloves, and a brand new electric cooker.

Three tea towels, two oven gloves and a brand new electric cooker.

On the fourth day of Christmas my true love sent to me
Four place mats, three tea towels, two oven gloves and
A brand new electric cooker.

Five cooking pots, four place mats, three tea towels,
