Original text and translations

Italian.png Italian text

Vecchie letrose, non valete niente
Se non a far l'aguaito per la chiazza.
Tira, tira, tir'alla mazza,
Vecchie letrose, scannaros'e pazze!

English.png English translation

Spiteful old hags, you are good for nothing,
Only for lying in wait in the thicket.
Beat, beat, beat with your canes,
Spiteful old hags, murderous and mad!

German.png German translation

Ihr alten Zankweiber seid zu nichts zu gebrauchen,
außer dazu, auf der Piazza Streit anzufangen.
Greift zum Nudelholz,
ihr alten Zankweiber, streitsüchtig und verückt!
