"Tinge-linge-later" is the sound a small drum makes.


Tinge-linge-later = Depicts a small drum sound
Bum-bum-bum = Depicts a big drum sound


Wikisource lists an additional following light-hearted verse...

Tingelingelater, to tomater,
tre kartofler og en bøf.
Det skal kongen ha' til middag,
ellers si'r han øf, øf, øf.

Loose English Translation:

Rat-a-tat tat, two tomatoes,
Three potatoes and a steak.
It should be the king's for dinner
Or else he'll say, "Oink, oink, oink".
