• I have a luck cat in my arms,
    it spins threads of luck.
    Luck cat, luck cat,
    make for me three things:
    make for me a golden ring,
    to tell me that I am lucky;
    make for me a mirror
    to tell me that I am beautiful;
    make for me a fan
    to waft away my cumbersome thoughts.
    Luck cat, luck cat,
    spin for me some news of my future!
