    There once was an old man and an old woman and they had a hen Riaba.
    Once the hen laid an egg, and not an ordinary one, but a golden one.

    The old man hit it and hit it, but could not break it.
    The old woman hit it and hit it, but could not break it.
    A mouse ran past, waved its tail, the egg fell and broke.

    The old man cried, the old woman cried, and the hen cackled:
    "Don't cry old man, don't cry old woman.
    I will lay you a new egg, not a golden one, but an ordinary one!"
