on the third day

Three frozen hens 

Really. With the vast variety of things people group in threes, this song gives us hens? Maybe eating chicken was not that common back then.

The Three Musketeers 
The Three Stooges 
Three Blind Mice 
Three Bears with three beds and three bowls of porridge (and one blond)

Three primary colors 
Three wise men 
Three dumb blonds (often seen in sets of three) 
Three strikes in a row is great for bowling but not baseball. 

Three little pigs 
Three sheets to the wind

Ordering three items - burger, drink, and fries - the classic American meal 

Today the cost of shipping live birds would be much more than the cost of the bird so I just assume they came frozen. 

Three French Hens 

Did they at least come cooked? Just heat and serve items save the busy person of today all the preparation time.

I ggogled for the lyrics and now I can follow you better.  So much for being the pom-pom girl.  So which one is the true gift your true lover gives you, french hens or frozen hens?  I forgot.  I would take the french hens.

Hehe - on the third day of Christmas my true love gave to me, ... three Stooges?


Three's a Crowd ... perhaps three should have been left out of the song all together ...

You're right...things do come in threes. As the saying goes, "third one's a charm."

I guess the french would be more romantic than frozen.  thanks

Hey it would be great to have the 3 Stooges entertain - well back when they were alive anyway.

I should have thought of that.  I forgot the number in the band.
