A transliteration of "Tori-tsukusi hatsune Sugoroku"

Pot-tori 一、Nedzumi-tori


Oy, the taste seeker,
there went a very well-fattened chicken
over there.
She opened the wings wide up
takes so broad path
on the street.
Allow me
to net and catch her
once, please.
It's really a well shaped girl,
isn't she?
I would dream once
to raise a hen like her
and let her chirping for joy.
