We’re cutting the forest to catch it. -But your axes are not sharp! Let me put them into my saddlebags. If they cut my saddlebags, you’ll cut all the forest. The man secretly put the axes in a safe way. They didn’t make holes into his bags. Meanwhile, the people wondered what to do without their instruments. -Let’s give him his due! He took our axes!!! Take off your clothes, put them on the back of his horse and it will die of this weight!-advised Witty Peter. The people stayed naked waiting what would be happen.

Fischiettando, in groppa al suoand if the whole world you asinello, lui è esile, baffuto e snello.will see in every country Peter, spiritoso e divertente,one like him there will be. lui fa ridere la gente.  Contro tutti vincerà Se la parola userà.
