Song Info


The Twelve Ways of Christmas is a song sung by the Lion Guard.

After hearing that Dandy Claws will only appear if the song is both sung and performed under the Christmas tree on Christmas day, the Lion Guard organize the entire show with the hopes of getting him to appear to make Timon and Pumbaa's Christmas the best one they've ever had.

Lyrics

Bunga:
For the first way of Christmas

A rhino in a baobab tree

My good friends gave to me
Two snapping crocs
