The Wolf and the Goat
A wolf, who looking for food
Hade tokhola zebelat yedeli nehru
He saw a goat eating grass on top of a high cliff
Ab berih gobo, hanti tel sa-ari tebelit re-ee-yo-wa
He wanted to get the goat to climb down from the rock
Neti tel, ne taheti ketewered deliuwa
he called out to her.
Excuse me, dear Goat, he said in a friendly voice,
Aytahazilay, weyzerotay tel ilu
It is very dangerous for you to be at such a height.
Hadegenya iyu ab berih ketkonee
Do come down before you injure yourself.
Kedmi nebsehi mehesighki nab taheti woredi
Besides, the grass is much greener and thicker down here
Eti sa-ari abze beziyada ketelia iyu, tsu-oog iyu
Take my advice, and please come down from that high cliff.
Hasabay tekhebelio, bejahi kabti zelekhio berih bota nabze tahati weredi
But the goat knew too well of the wolf's intent.
Eta tel gn eti tokhola entay hasibola kemzelow feleteto
You do not care if I injure myself or not.
Aygedeshikan iyu nebsay ente godako
You do not care if I eat good grass or bad.
tsubu sa-ari yebelat hemuk sa-ari yebelat na-aha zereyeka iconnen
What you care about is eating me.
Na-aha zegediseka naai nemebelat iyu
