Dall'uovo gobbo
di una gallina zoppa
nacque un pulcino
che zoppicava un pò
From the hunchback egg
of a lame hen
a chick was born
that was limping a little
 
sembrava triste
perciò la mamma chioccia
per consolarlo l'hully gully
gli insegnò
he looked sad
therefore mother hen
to comfort him the gully hully
she taught him
 
Ticche tocche ticchè toc
il pulcino dopo un pò
ticche tocche ticchè toc
a ballare incominciò
Tic toc tic toc
the chick after a while
Tic toc tic toc
began to dance
 
tre galletti verdi e gialli
professori di hully gully
il pulcino ballerino
salutarono così
chicchirichì... chicchirichì...
three green and yellow roosters
professors of hully gully
the dancing chick
they greeted like this
cockadoodledoo... cockadoodledoo...
 
Per l'hully gully
di quel pulcino zoppo
grilli e cicale
facevano cri-crì
il babbo gallo
scoppiava dalla gioia
e nel pollaio una festa organizzò
For the gully hully
of that lame chick
crickets and cicadas
were saying chirp chirp
father rooster
was bursting with joy
and in the henhouse organized a party
 
ticche tocche ticchè toc
il pulcino dopo un pò
ticche tocche ticchè toc
a ballare incominciò
Tic toc tic toc
the chick after a while
Tic toc tic toc
began to dance
 
Tre galletti verdi e gialli
professori di hully gully
il pulcino ballerino
salutarono così
chicchirichì...
chicchirichì...
three green and yellow roosters
professors of hully gully
the dancing chick
they greeted like this
cockadoodledoo... cockadoodledoo...
