Sempre mi ride sta donna da bene
Quando passeggio per mezzo sta via
La riderella, la pazzarella non vi ca ride,
ha ha ha! ridemo tutti per darli piacere.

This lady always makes fun of me
when we pass in the street.
The silly flirt, the foolish lady, can only laugh,
ha ha ha, let's all laugh to make her happy.
