The Goose That Laid the Golden Egg
Eta derho worki enkwekoha weleda

A man and his wife owned a very special goose.
Hade Sebain mes sebaytoo, yestefilyet derho alatom

Every day the goose would lay a golden egg,
Eta derho, Kulu ma-alti, workanwen enkwakweho teweled

which made the couple very rich.
dehar, Etom sebay mes sebaytoo habtamat coinom

If we could have all the golden eggs that are inside the goose,
sebaytoo Eti workawi enkwakeho ab kabda zelo entewesdo

we could be richer much faster said the wife.
keltifna mehabtemna nerna il

You are right said her husband,
Hakehe iluwa sebaia

We would not have to wait for the goose to lay her egg every day.
Neta derho kesat workowi enkwakweho teweled kentsebay yebelnan kulu ma-alti

So, the couple killed the goose
Neta dero keteluwa

and cut her open
tebeehoma

The goose had no golden eggs inside of her
Eta derho workawi enkwekwakeho ayneberan

and they had no more golden eggs
workowi enkwekwaho yebelowen
