Our surroundings — our home;

Let us keep it neat and clean.


High foundation and sloping roof,

Let us make such houses;

If there come rain or stormy winds,

We will have nothing to fear.


Well, hand-pump, pond stairs,

Do not keep trash at these places;

Brushing teeth and washing hands [after having food]

We do here,

And thus, it is not right [to keep these places dirty].
