Lyrics:

Karasu naze nakuno
Karasu wa yama ni
Kawai nanatsu no
Ko ga aru kara yo

Translation:

“Mother crow, why do you cry so?”
“Because I have seven cute children
high on the mountain.”

Kawai kawai to
Karasu wa nakuno
Kawai kawai to
Nakundayo
“Kawai kawai” this mother crow cries.
“Kawai kawai” cries the mother crow
.
Yama no hurusu ni
Itte mite goran
Marui me o shita
Iiko da yo
 
“You should behold the old nest
on the mountain. And there you'll see such
round-eyed, good children.”
