Old King Cole Lyrics dates thousands of years ago to the 3rd century.
However, the fact of the matter is that the real history of this nursery rhyme cannot be traced well. This is because historians find it hard to distinguish between the Cole being implied.
It is believed that there were 3 kings in Britain who had the name Cole. According to history of kings in Britain, the author (Geoffrey of Monmouth) indicated that king Cole was the king of all the Britons.
The lyrics to the original version of the song are:
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;
Oh there’s none so rare, as can compare
With King Cole and his fiddlers three
Another version is:
Good King Cole,
And he call’d for his Bowle,
And he call’d for Fiddler’s three;
And there was Fiddle, Fiddle,
And twice Fiddle, Fiddle,
For ’twas my Lady’s Birth-day,
Therefore we keep Holy-day
And come to be merry
