O chi vol consia caldari candelieri fersore e lucerne da stagnare.
O spazza camin.
Cald'a rost caldi cott'a des, cald'a rost.
Alle beline donne.
A la bella franceschina ni ni na bufina la fili bustachina,
Che la vorria mari ni ni ni ni la fili bustachi.

O tinsmith! Candlesticks, frying pans,and lanterns to tin!
O chimneysweep!
Chestnuts hot, hot, just cooked!
To the beautiful women!
To the beautiful Franceschina who would like a husband.
(Tr. Ruth I. DeFord))
