    "The eighth month is fast approaching, and yet I have nothing to wear
    I want to dress gaily, so brother, will you lend me just one sleeve?
    I wish to dress my children and loved ones... in the one kimono that I own
    As for me, I will wear vines... that I plucked deep in the mountains

    The light of the full moon shines down, illuminating the world with its divine light
    When my lover sneaks in to visit me, I wish that the clouds would hide that light just a little.

    In search of new lands, I build a new house
    I thatch the house with reed stalks... gathered neatly in bundles
    I thatch the house with reed stalks, gathered neatly in bundles
    At the stone wall, let us celebrate the golden house, that was built by a hundred black kites.
    At the stone wall, let us celebrate the golden house, that was built by a hundred black kites.
    Let us celebrate the golden house, that was built by a hundred black kites"
