The Fox and the Crow
A Fox once saw a Crow with a piece of cheese in its beak.
Hade wokharia, derho fromagio hizu ab afu re-ey-yo-wa
Thats for me, said the fox
Eti wokharia Neti fromagio natay iyu ilu
he walked up to the foot of the tree.
nab tehiti om Kadu
Good-day, Mistress Crow, he cried.
Selam derho ilu
you are looking nice to-day
Lomi, tsubuti meseelki
Also You have a nice voice, please sing for me
Tu-um demtsee alekee, bejahee derefilay
The Crow opened her mout and dropped the chesse
Neti derho, afa meskefeteto, shu-oh, fromagio wudiku
The fox ate the cheese
Neti wokharia neti fromagio belituwa
Lovely he said
That was the only thing I wanted.
Izi terah iyeh delieh
For your cheese I will give you a piece of advice for the future.
