Go you all to our banquet, Show your reverence now! As for you, newly marrieds - Come to father and bow. His look may be so bitter, When he knits his eyebrows... But you fall at his feet then, To bring him back to calmness. Itís not too heavy labor, To give father a bow - And his eyes wonít be spare, Heíll assist you and love you. So start your happy living With the very deep bow, And each day of your being Show father great love you!
