بزن و سەگ و مانگا پێكەوە هاوڕێی باش بوون. رۆژێكیان ئەوان پێكەوە بە پاس چوون بۆ گەشت.

Goat, Dog, and Cow were great friends. One day they went on a journey in a taxi.

كاتێ گەیشتن، شۆفێر گوتی پارەی بڵیتەكانتان بدەن. مانگا پارەكەی خۆی دا.

When they reached the end of their journey, the driver asked them to pay their fares. Cow paid her fare.

سەگ پارەی زیاتری دا، چونكە وردەی پێ نەبوو.

Dog paid a bit extra, because he did not have the correct money.

ئەو كاتەی شۆفێرەکە بەنیاز بوو باقیەكەی بداتەوە بە سەگەكە، بزن بە بێ ئەوەی پارەكەی بدات، هەڵات.

The driver was about to give Dog his change when Goat ran away without paying anything.

شۆفێرەكە زۆر ناڕەحەت بوو و بە بێ ئەوەی باقیەكەی بداتەوە بە سەگەكە، رۆیشت.

The driver was very annoyed. He drove away without giving Dog his change.

بۆیە تا ئەمڕۆش، سەگ بەرەو ئوتۆمبیلەكان رادەكات بۆ ئەوەی بزانێ ئەو شۆفێرەیە كە باقیەكەی نەداوەتەوە.

That is why, even today, Dog runs towards a car to peep inside and find the driver who owes him his change.

بزنیش كاتێ گوێی لە دەنگی ئوتۆمبیل دەبێ هەڵدێ. ئەو لەوە دەترسێ كە بیگرن لەبەر ئەوەی پارەی بڵیتی نەداوە.

Goat runs away from the sound of a car. She is afraid she will be arrested for not paying her fare.

بەڵام مانگا هیچ گوێی ناداتێ كاتێ ئوتۆمبیل دەبینێ. مانگا زۆر لەسەرەخۆ لە شەقامەکان دەپەڕێتەوە، چونكە دەزانێ كە پارەی بڵیتەكەی داوە.

And Cow is not bothered when a car is coming. Cow takes her time crossing the road because she knows she paid her fare in full.
