Bili nekoć djed i baka, koji su imali kokicu Rjabu.
Jednoga dana kokica snese jaje, ali ne obično - zlatno jaje.
Djed je lupao, lupao - nije ga razbio.
Baka je lupala, lupala - nije ga razbila.
Protrča miš, zamahnu repom, jaje padne i razbije se.
Djed plače, baka plače, a kokica kokodače:
"Ne plači djede, ne plači bako:
snjesti ću vam novo jaje, i to ne zlatno - već obično!"
There once was an old man and an old woman, they had a speckled hen. The hen laid an egg, 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.
They both 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 and the old woman cried, 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."
