Italian.png Italian text

Udit’ecco le trombe.
All’arme, all’arme
Ta ra ra, tun ta ra
Che son nemici nostri.
Chiascun combatt’ e giostri
E valoroso le sue forze nostri.
Toccate gli tamburi
Tra pa ta pa ta pa
All’arme, all’arme
Che il camp’ ho mai s’accosto.
Ognuno stii alla posta.
Sparate gl’archibugi
Addosso, addosso
E fategli cader la dentr’al fosso.
