And calling, and yells:

And the poor man swallowed,
I swallowed with boots and checkers.

All tremble in fear.
All fear scream.

So for this my sword -
Your head from his shoulders! —
And waved his sword toy.

12

And Crocodile said:
- You have won!
Do not destroy me, Vanya Vasilchikov!
Have pity on my crocodiles!
Crocodiles in the Nile splash,
With tears I wait,
Let me go to the kiddie, Vanya,
I'll give you something for gingerbread.

13

I replied Vanya Vasilchikov:
- Though I pity your crocodiles,
but you, bloodthirsty vermin,
I'm hacked, like beef.
To me, obzhora, you have nothing to be sorry:
A lot of meat you ate a Human.

And the crocodile said:
- Everything, I swallowed,
I will give back to you with joy!

From the mouth of a crocodile

And from each household

The entire capital was decorated with flags.

One hundred pounds of marmalade,
One hundred pounds of chocolate
And a thousand servings of ice cream!

Away from Petrograd:

Straight into yl

Where his wife lived krokodilitsa,
His detushek nurse-poilitsa.
