歌詞 意味

Old King Cole was a merry old soul
And a merry old soul was he
He called for his pipe, he called for his glass
And he called for his fiddlers three
Every fiddler he had a fine 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

コール王様はゆかいな王だったよ
ゆかいで陽気といえばコールじいさんそのものだったよ
彼はパイプを命じ、碗を命じ、
3人のバイオリン弾きを呼ぶよう命じた
3人ともそれぞれがバイオリンを持っていた
それはとても立派なものだよ
キーキーキーキー
他とは比べ物にならないほどまれな演奏
