Pat-a-pan is a French Burgundian Christmas Carol. The carol was written by Bernard de La Monnoye (1641–1728) and first published in 1720. The carol centers on the birth of Jesus Christ.

Willie, bring your little drum;
Robin, bring your flute and come;
And be merry while you play,
Come be merry while you play,
On this joyous Christmas day!
