A Treasure To Behold is the first song from The Little Drummer Boy.

Lyrics

Ali: Drummer boys and little lambs! Feast your eyes across the sand!

Introducing an oasis of entertainment:

The greatest showman of the side of the Jordan: it's Ben Haramed!

Ben: So, you say you're in a mood of diversion

Just a song, a laugh, amusement for your pain?

Well, my caravan it brings

A carnival for kings

Cashing in  from all the crowds of Jerusalem

I've got comics, gymnasts, jugglers and yours truly

But there's one important something that I lacked

It's the newest little drummer boy sensation

Yeah, I'll reel them in

You'll keep 'em coming back

Kid you're gold

They'll be sold

They'll be slingin' shiny shekels uncontrolled

Ever Claudius and Claudet

With a buck to spare will spend it

An amazing little Drummer Boy

A treasure to behold

Aaron: But, all the people....

Ben: What about 'em?

Aaron: I would rather be just left all alone

The empty lonely desert is my home

Drumming just for hoof-ed mammals

For my donkey, sheep and camel

And remained the Little Dummer Boy, unknown

Ali: Come on, kid. Let Ben Haramed put you and your friends to work.

Arron: I don't wanna work.

Ali: You've gotta have money to eat, to feed your animals.

Aaron: But I don't want to be around those people. I don't want to be around anyone.

Ben: Of course you don't. You don't have to.

Aaron: Huh?

Ben: We're gonna make a lot of money, Aaron. And once you've got money, you won't have to be around anyone you don't want to be around.

Aaron: I won't have to be around anyone?

Ben: I just said that. Leave it to me, Drummer Boy, and you'll never have to deal with people again.

(Mai and Oui winked at each other, leaving Samson and Jousha confused)

Ben: Yes, I understand you'd rather be alone now

But your prefernces must at the moment bend

Once you wow them on the streets

You'll grab your gold and then retreat

To the desert with your little animal friends

Kid, you're gold

Ali: Kid, you're gold

Ben: They'll be sold

Both: They'll be slingin' shiny shekels uncontrolled

Every Claudius and Claudet

With a buck to spare will spend it

An amazing little Drummer Boy

A treasure to behold

A treasure to behold

Aaron: Alright, we'll go.
