Want to instantly make a connection with any Japanese person you meet? Just hum this classic children's song and you're sure to get a reaction!
Usagi to Kame is a very popular kids' song. This song is based on the Tortoise and the Hare, which is one of the well-known Aesop's Fables.
Challenge yourself! Use the Japanese you've studied up to this point and see how much you understand! If you've watched our Kantan Kana series you can try to sing along. Making the jump to real-life Japanese is a scary one, but friendly children's songs are a great place to start!

もしもし かめよ かめさんよ
あゆみの のろい ものはない
どうして そんなに のろいのか
なんと おっしゃる うさぎさん
そんなら おまえと かけくらべ
むこうの おやまの ふもとまで
どちらが さきに かけつくか
どんなに かめが いそいでも
どうせ ばんまで かかるだろ
ここらで ちょっと ひとねむり
これは ねすぎた しくじった
