Translation needed from Korean to English

Hello! I'm trying to help my daughter learn Korean as well. We're reading a kid's book to her and the title is "소 세마리"

 

Can you help me translate this line by line? I would really appreciate it! Phew, it took me awhile to write it all down. I know some of the vocabulary but not all of it and not all the verbs. Thank you so much!

 

누렁소 세말리는 언제나 함께 다녔어요.

호랑이는 소를 잡아먹고 싶었어요.

그래서 기회만 엿보고 있었지요.

어느날, 호랑이가 덥벼들려고 하였어요.

그러자 소세마리는 한데 모였지요.

얘들아 우리 힘을 합칠까?

"좋아" 누렁소 세마리는 함께 호랑이 한데 뿔을 들이 밀었어요.

그러자 호랑이는 "아이고, 아이고" 하며 달아났어요.

누렁소 세말리는 언제나 함께 다녔어요.

Three yellow cows were always together.


호랑이는 소를 잡아먹고 싶었어요.

A tiger wanted to hunt, and eat cow's fresh flesh.


그래서 기회만 엿보고 있었지요.

So, he waited for a chance.


어느날, 호랑이가 덥벼들려고 하였어요.

One day, the tiger tried to jump at those cows.


그러자 소세마리는 한데 모였지요.

Then those cows assembled.


얘들아 우리 힘을 합칠까?

"Guys, we should stick together"


"좋아" 누렁소 세마리는 함께 호랑이 한데 뿔을 들이 밀었어요.

"Yes." Those three yellow cows pushed their horns together against the tiger 


그러자 호랑이는 "아이고, 아이고" 하며 달아났어요.

The tiger said "holy shit" and then ran away.

Hannah, you didn't check to see if that was a typo.... I am guessing it is.. but I am not sure. Are you going to leave me hanging?

Thanks everyone again! I appreciate it. Azalea, Thanks again for helping me out and I'll check out that book too :) Tyler, I liked your "Holy Shit" translation of "아이고, 아이고" Haha

 

Kiyama, I'm learning Korean online and trying to talk to people. There are a few good sites that I've been using:

And I've been starting to watch Korean dramas as well.

Oh, I should have mentioned that The Rabbit's Judgement (토끼의 심판) is a beautifully written bilingual book by Suzanne Crowder Han.  Yumi Heo's illustrations are a must to see!  I often have to replace this book on my shelf due to wear and tear by so many eager hands. 

 

It too invoves a tiger, of course!  :P
