One day the boy went hunting.
Oosoo ka sawabetu sogo meano'o,
He walked through the sage brush, he kept walking.
Soo naatse'e ka kammu tuhudyano
The boy saw a rabbit and a deer.
Soo taba unu udutu
The sun was very hot.
Soo naatse'e unu udutuna,
The boy was very hot and very thirsty.
Did not have water to drink.
Soo naatse'e ka togo'o natunetooena
The boy remembered what his grandfather taught him.
"Ka pamagatza kwuuse yaese
"Catch a horn toad then rub its stomach."
Yaese ka pamagatza mee metamma, "Pamagatza, pamagatza, paa'a e paamaka', Yaese u ki pooetaekwu."
