Norwegian Fairy tales


(In this tale the notes of the Cock and Hen must be imitated.)

Hen—You promise me shoes year after year, year after year, and yet I get no shoes!

Cock—You shall have them, never fear! Henny penny!

Hen—I lay egg after egg, egg after egg, and yet I go about barefoot!

Cock—Well, take your eggs, and be off to the tryst, and buy yourself shoes, and don't go any longer barefoot!
