Old King Cole

Sing and Learn the Actions!


Old King Cole was a
merry old soul and
a merry old soul was he.

He called for his pipe and
he called for his bowl and
he called for his fiddlers three.

Every fiddler, he had a fiddle
and a very fine fiddle had he;
Twee tweedle dee, tweedle
dee, went the fiddlers.

Oh, there 's none so rare,
as can compare with King
Cole and his fiddlers three!
