TESTO

Fenesta vascia ‘e padrona crudele,
quanta suspire mm’haje fatto jettare!…
Mm’arde stu core, comm’a na cannela,
bella, quanno te sento annommenare!
Oje piglia la ‘sperienza de la neve!
La neve è fredda e se fa maniare…
e tu comme si’ tanta aspra e crudele?!
Muorto mme vide e nun mme vuó’ ajutare!?…
Vorría addeventare no picciuotto,
co na langella a ghire vennenn’acqua,
Pe’ mme ne jí da chisti palazzuotte:
Belli ffemmene meje, ah! Chi vó’ acqua…
Se vota na nennella da llá ‘ncoppa:
Chi è ‘sto ninno ca va vennenn’acqua?
E io responno, co parole accorte:
Só’ lacreme d’ammore e non è acqua!…
