The Story of Kap Sooni and Kap Doli
갑돌이와 갑순이는 한 마을에 살았더래요
둘이는 서로 서로 사랑을 했더래요
그러나 둘이는 마음뿐이래요
겉으로는 음~ 모르는 척 했더래요
오~ 모르는 척 했더래요.
그러다가 갑순이는 시집을 갔더래요
시집간 날 첫날밤에 한없이 울었더래요
갑순이 마음은 갑돌이뿐이래요
겉으로는 음~ 안 그런 척 했더래요
오~ 안그런 척 했더래요.
갑돌이도 화가 나서 장가를 갔더래요
장가간 날 첫날밤에 달 보고 울었더래요
갑돌이 마음도 갑순이 뿐이래요
겉으로는 음~ 고까짓 것 했더래요
오~ 고까짓 것 했더래요.
It is said that Kap Sooni and Kap Doli lived in a village
It is said that the two loved each other
However, they only kept it to themselves
It is said - hummm - that they pretended not to know
Oh, they pretended not to know.
It is said that Kap Sooni got married
It is said that she cried endlessly the first night
It is said that Kap Sooni only thought of Kap Doli
It is said - hummmm - that she pretended not to think of him,
Oh, she pretended not to think of him.
It is said that Kap Doli was angry and got married too
It is said that the first night he cried at the moon
It is said that for Kap Doli, Kap Sooni was the only one,
It is said - hummmm - that he still seemingly had hanky panky
Oh, he still seemingly had hanky panky.
