The one-pearl earring girl

has been treated well and loved,

But all she cares about is running away from her house.

She almost got killed by some vicious hunters,

but was saved by this magnificent painter.

Many years later, the painter met her again.

She was with her husband

Who loved and treated her well.

The painter felt sadness overwhelm him

And died a couple of days later.
