Italian.png Italian text

Chi passa per sta strad' e non sospira,
beato s'è, falalilela,
Beato è chi lo puote fare,
per la reale.
Affacciati mo,
se non ch'io moro mo, falalilela.

Affaciati, che tu me dai la vita,
Meschino me,
Se'l cielo non ti possa consolare,
Per la reale.
Affacciati mo…

Et io ci passo da sera e mattina,
Meschino me,
Et tu, crudel, che non t'affacci mai,
Perchè lo fai ?
Affacciati mo…

Compar Vassillo, che sta a suo loco,
Beato s'è,
Salutami no poco la comare,
Per la reale.
Affaciati mo…

German.png German translation

Wer durch diese Straße geht und nicht seufzt,
ist selig, falalilela,
selig ist, wer das tun kann,
Zeige dich mir jetzt,
wenn nicht, so sterbe ich nun, falalilela.

Zeige dich mir, damit du mir mein Leben gibst,
ich armseliger,
wenn der Himmel dich nicht trösten könnte,
Zeige …

Und ich gehe dort durch Abend und Morgen,
ich Armseliger,
und du, Grausame, du zeigst dich mir nie,
warum tust du das?
Zeige …

Gevatter Vasillo, der an seinem Platz bleibt,
selig ist er,
Grüße mir ein bisschen die Gevatterin,
Zeige …

He who passes along this street and does not sigh,
is blessed, falalilela,
blessed is he who can do it,
Show yourself now,
lest I die now, falalilela.

Show yourself, to give me life,
miserable me,
if the heavens cannot console you,
Show …

And I pass there night and morn,
miserable me,
and you, cruel one, never show yourself,
wy do you do it?
Show …

Master Vasillo, who remains at his place,
blessed is he,
greet the mistress a little bit from me,
Show …
