Korean Kids Song Sunday: Pororo Theme song (Season 1 &2)

I don't think that Pororo the Little Penguin needs an introduction.  But, just in case...Pororo is one of the most popular children's cartoon in Asia.  Pororo began as a Korean creation but has expanded and is translated in multiple languages and is shown in over 80 countries.   Kids love Pororo!!!
Any Korean grocery store here in the states is going to carry Pororo merchandise for kids and any Korean video store will likely carry pirated versions of the DVD series (with or without subtitles).  

Pororos theme song was the first song in a CD block of 100 Korean kids songs that I borrowed.  Pororo is crazy popular.  I wonder if there was a loveability contest between Pororo and Elmo, who would win?

Lyrics in Korean
야! 뽀로로다
노는 게 제일 좋아.
친구들 모여라!
언제나 즐거워
개구쟁이 뽀로로

눈 덮인 숲 속 마을.
꼬마 펭귄 나가신다
언제나 즐거워.
오늘은 또 무슨 일이 생길까?

뽀로로를 불러봐요. 
뽀롱뽀롱 뽀로로 뽀롱뽀롱 뽀로로
뽀롱뽀롱 뽀롱뽀롱 뽀롱뽀롱 뽀롱 뽀로로

노는 게 제일 좋아.
친구들 모여라
언제나 즐거워
뽀롱뽀롱 뽀롱뽀롱 뽀로로

  7. Rhyming songs are very important skills for children that help a reader learn to use inflection an animation when reading aloud.
