Dear, listen, I say open your mouth."
"In order not to get your hands dirty,
you see, it looks so funny
everyone opens his mouth
so wide when I say that.
They look like
sparrows kids waiting foods."
"Ha, ha, ha, not a
sparrows kid, but a
girl like you that is what
I want to eat.
How do you think of it,
instead of serving foods to my mouth?
