Old King Cole
Nursery Rhyme Old King Cole with Lyrics and Music
Who was actually King Cole that this English nursery rhyme from 1708 tells us about? The answer is that nobody knows... Probably he has never existed...
Don't you remember the Old King Cole tune? No problem at all! You can listen to "Old King Cole" at the bottom of this page. Lucky for you...
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,
Oh there's none so rare, as can compare
With King Cole and his fiddlers three.
Let's sing Old King Cole!
