Korean Children Song (동요)

I love to teach children song to my baby. I usually sing for him nursery song in English or Indonesian which I know very well. But since I sent JoSH to daycare (orini jib ~ 어린이 집), I tought that he must have learnt some Korean Children song in the daycare. 


Previously I just knew 'The Three Bears' song which is very popular since it was also sung in Korean drama 'Full House'. It is the first children song I learnt in Korea. Knowing only this song and sings it every time to the baby made me curious to know and learn other Korean children songs.


I came across this video in youtube and listened to the songs. Three of the songs are popular song in Korea. The rhythm and melodies are so easy to follow. It didn't take me a long time to memorized the easy-to-sing songs and the simple movements. The lyrics also has simple meaning but suitable for children. We feel happy whenever we sing these children songs.


Here is the lyrics and the translation if you want to sing together with your kids:


옹달샘 ~ Mata Air/Sumur Kecil

깊은 산속 옹달샘, 누가 와서 먹나요?
Small deep spring in the forest, who will come and drink?
맑고 맑은 옹달샘, 누가 와서 먹나요?
Small clear spring in the forest, who will come and drink?
새벽에 토끼가 눈 비비고 일어나
In the dawn, rabbit rubbed its eyes and woke up
세수하러 왔다가 물만 먹고 가지요.
She came to wash her eyes, drank the water and went away.
  
깊은 산 속 옹달샘, 누가 와서 먹나요?
Small deep spring in the forest, who will come and drink?
맑고 맑은 옹달샘, 누가 와서 먹나요?
Small clear spring in the forest, who will come and drink?
달밤에 노루가 숨바꼭질 하다가
In moonlight, when deer play hide and seek
목마르면 달려와 얼른 먹고 가지요.
If she feels thirsthy, run and drink quickly, and then go away.


퐁당퐁당 ~ Plop plop


퐁당퐁당 돌을 던지자, 누나 몰래 돌을 던지자 
Plop plop throw the stone, when sister doesn't know, throw the stone
냇물에 퍼져라 멀리 멀리 퍼져라 

The ripples are spread away, spread far-far away
건너편에 앉아서 나물을 씻는 

Sister is sitting on the other side, washing sprout
우리 누나 손등을 간지러 주어라. 
Let's tickle our sister's hand with the gentle waves.

퐁당퐁당 돌을 던지자 , 누나 몰래 돌을 던지자 

Plop plop throw the stone, when sister doesn't know, throw the stone 
냇물아 퍼져라 퍼질대로 퍼져라 

The ripples are spread away, ruffle to the other side 
고운노래 한마디 들려달라고 

Making you plop, plopping sounds into a beautiful song
우리 누나 손등을 간지러 주어라. 

Let's tickle our sister's hand with the gentle waves.


둥글게 둥글게 ~ Round Round

둥글게 둥글게  둥글게 둥글게
Round, round, round, round
빙글 빙글 돌아가며 춤을 춥시다
Follow the music, move around and let's dance
손뼉을 치면서 노래를 부르며
While clapping hands, sing the song
라라라라 즐거웁게 춤추자
Lalalala, let's dance happily

링가링가링~가 링가링가 링
Ring ga ring ga ring ~ ga ring ga ring ga ring
링가링가링~가 링가링가 링
Ring ga ring ga ring ~ ga ring ga ring ga ring

손에 손을 잡고 모두 다 함께
Come together, hand in hand
즐거웁게 뛰어봅시다
Let's jump happily

둥글게 둥글게 둥글게 둥글게
Round, round, round, round
빌글 빙글 돌아가며 춤을 춥시다
Follow the music, move around and let's dance
손뼉을 치면서 노래를 부르며
While clapping hands, sing the song
라라라라 즐거웁게 춤추자 .
Lalalala, let's dance happily
