  • Two-eyes was in charge of looking after the goat, but she was hungry as she hadnt had much to eat. She sat down on a ridge and began to cry, so much so that two streams ran down from her eyes. When she looked up a wise woman was standing beside her who asked why she was crying.

    Two-eyes said that she was sad as her family hated her for having two eyes like other people. Today they have given me so little to eat that i am still very hungry. The wise woman told Two-eyes not to cry and that she would tell her somthing so that she would never be hungry again.

  • Whenever you are hungry just say to your goat:

    Bleat my little goat, bleat; please cover the table with something to eat.

    And then a table filled with the most delicious food will appear before you, and you may eat as much as you like. When you have had enough just say: Bleat, bleat my little goat I say, please

    take this table right away. And it will vanish from sight.

    And after that, the Wise Woman disappeared! Two-eyes decided to see if this mysterious old woman was telling the truth, as she was very

    hungry. Full of anticipation, Two-eyes repeated the magic words and then... Poof! An extravagant table appeared in front of her, and on it laid the most delicious food and drink she had ever seen! Two-eyes was amazed and helped herself to the food, but she was not greedy. When her hunger was satisfied, she again spoke the magic words that the wise woman had told her and the table vanished!

  • In the evening she went home with the goat an found a small dish with some food on it but she did not touch it. For the next few days she did the same and her sisters became suspicious and said: There must be something wrong with Two-eyes,she has started leaving her food and she used to eat everything that was given to her. They decided to send One-eye to follow Two-eyes when she took the goat to see if anyone gave her anything to eat.

  • She then asked the goat Bleat my little goat bleat, please cover this table with something to eat. And sat down at the table and ate and drank untill she was full. She asked the goat to make the table disappear, woke up One-eye, and told her that she should not fall asleep whilst looking after the goat as it could have gotten away. They went home and again Two-eyes left her food. One-eye could not tell her mother why she wasnt eating as she had fallen asleep

    When Two-eyes set out the next time. One-eye said she would go with her to the pasture to make sure that the goat was well taken care of and driven to where there is food. But Two-eyes had realised One-eyes plan and drove the goat into high grass. She said: Come One-eye we will sit down and i will sing to you. She sat down tired from the walk and began singing...One-eye are you awake? One-eye are you sleeping? Untill One-eye fell asleep.

  • The next day Mother sent Three-eyes along with Two-eyes to look after the goat together. Again Two-eyes knew of her sisters plan to spy on her, and she led both Three-

    eyes and the goat up to high ground. We will rest a while, and I will sing to you, Two-eyes said kindly, and so they sat down and Two-eyes began to sing softly, Three-eyes are you waking,Two-eyes are you sleeping. However, Two-eyes made a terrible mistake: she only sang to two of the eyes, of which Three-eyes had three! As the third eye had not been named in the song, it did not sleep!

    Because Three-eyes wanted to spy on Two-eyes, she slyly

    closed her third eye to make her sister think that she was asleep. Then

    Two-eyes spoke the magic words to the goat: Bleat my little goat, bleat; please

    cover the table with something to eat. As before she ate and drank as much as her heart

    desired, and then ordered to goat to make the table disappear. And Three-eyes had seen everything!

    Two-eyes then woke up Three-eyes, and told her off for falling asleep whilst looking after the goat and suggested

    that they should head for home.

  • Two-eyes again left her food but ths time Three-eyes told her mother everything. The mother was very angry and fetched a knife, which she then thrust into the heart of the goat, which fell down dead. When Two-eyes saw this she went out and seated herself on a ridge of grass on the hill and wept. Suddenly the wise woman once more stood by her side, and asked why she was crying. Two-eyes explained that her mother had killed the goat so she no longer had access to food and the wise woman said that Two-eyes should ask the sisters to give her the wise woman said that Two-eyes should ask the sisters to give her the heart of the goat ad bury it in the ground infront of the house. Then she vanished, and Two-eyes went home and did as the wise woman had suggested. The sisters laughed and said; if thats all you want you can have them. Two-eyes took the heart and buried them quietly in the ground in front of the house.
