Cari cumbagni chie vol dir chie stèu
Cusì pensusi e larghi da la zende
Cha su la strada? Unde xe ‘l vostro mende
Xe fursi persa? O ‘l cel pur strolonghèu?

Chello tiflos pedi chiè l’ale avèu
Sul cor n'ha messo un frizza si punzende
Chie sia cavarla no vien ca presende
Chy xel casun nu morti ‘l vederèu.

Da sto fraschetto anga nu punti semo
Vegnì ch’andem‘ a piar un mendesina
Chie fa gariri tutti el namurai.

Maccari a spime gligora e truvemo
Remedio al cor chie stà com' in fusina
De la Vulcan li sbiriti dannai.

Andemo ch’oramai
Xe tembo da garir al so despetto
De chest’amor ribaldo e maledetto.
