 Haveva na gallina capelluta
 scodat' e biancole la patanella
 tant' era bella.
 la mia co co co ta,
 la mia co co co co co ta,
 la mia co co co ta, cotella.
 O Dio, o Dio, o Dio,
 chi la trovassi tornamella.

 I had a fluffy hen
 her knees wrapped in white
 she was so beautiful.
 my co co co ta
 my co co co co co ta
 my co co co ta cotella.
 O God, or God, or God,
 whoever found her, return her.
