烏 なぜ啼くの
烏は山に
可愛い七つの
子があるからよ
可愛 可愛と
烏は啼くの
可愛 可愛と
啼くんだよ
山の古巣へ
行つて見て御覧
丸い眼をした
いい子だよ
Karasu naze nakuno
Karasu wa yama ni
Kawai nanatsu no
Ko ga aru kara yo
Kawai kawai to
Karasu wa nakuno
Kawai kawai to
Nakundayo
Yama no hurusu ni
Itte mite goran
Marui me o shita
Iiko da yo
Mother crow, why do you squwak so?
Because high on the mountain
I have seven cute children.
 
"Cute, cute,"
This mother crow sings.
"Cute, cute,"
Cries the mother crow.
You should behold the old nest
On the mountain. And there you'll see such
Round-eyed, good children.
