Capra, Cane e Mucca erano grandi amici. Un giorno andarono in gita in un taxi.

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

Quando arrivarono alla fine del viaggio, il tassista chiese loro di pagare la tariffa. Mucca pagò la sua parte.

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

Cane pagò un po’ di più, perché non aveva i soldi esatti.

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

Il tassista stava per dare a Cane il suo resto quando Capra scappò senza pagare nulla.

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

Il tassista era molto arrabbiato. Se ne andò via senza dare a Cane il suo resto.

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

Ecco perché, ancora oggi, Cane corre verso le macchine per sbirciare dentro e cercare il tassista che gli deve il suo resto.

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

Capra corre via al rumore di una macchina. Ha paura che la arrestino per non aver pagato la sua parte.

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

E Mucca non si preoccupa quando passa una macchina. Mucca si prende il suo tempo per attraversare la strada perché sa di aver pagato la sua parte.

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.
