English Translation

I had nine horned goats just now,
Gazing on the rugged pass
White goat, bare goat, bare white flank
White lips, slender-white,
Bare on the long hair of the white tail

I had six horned goats just now,
Gazing on the rugged pass
Red goat, bare goat, bare red flank
Red lips, slender-red,
Bare on the long hair of the red tail

I had three blue goats just now,
Gazing on the rugged pass
Blue goat, bare goat, bare blue flank
Blue lips, slender-blue,
Bare on the long hair of the blue tail

There is another goat, if I only look
Black goat, bare goat, bare black flank
Black lips, slender-black,
Bare on the long hair of the black tail
