Lyrics —

どんぐり ころころ どんぶりこ
おいけにはまって さあたいへん
どじょうがでてきて こんにちは
ぼっちゃん いっしょに
あそびましょう

どんぐり ころころ よろこんで
しばらくいっしょに あそんだが
やっぱりおやまが こいしいと
ないては どじょうを
こまらせた

どんぐり ころころ どんぶりこ
おいけにはまって さあたいへん
どじょうがでてきて こんにちは
ぼっちゃん いっしょに
あそびましょう

どんぐり ころころ よろこんで
しばらくいっしょに あそんだが
やっぱりおやまが こいしいと
ないては どじょうを
こまらせた

Translation

Acorn is rolling, rolling, rolling on
It’s falling into a pond. Oh my god!
A loach comes to closer to him to say hello
Hey boy, why don’t you
play together?

Acorn is rolling, rolling, rolling on
He liked to play with the loach for a while
But he still miss the mountain, he want to back
He cries and the loach is
at a loss

Acorn is rolling, rolling, rolling on
It’s falling into a pond. Oh my god!
A loach comes to closer to him to say hello
Hey boy, why don’t you
play together?

Acorn is rolling, rolling, rolling on
He liked to play with the loach for a while
But he still miss the mountain, he want to back
He cries and the loach is
at a loss
