Era una casa molto carina
senza soffitto, senza cucina;
non si poteva entrarci dentro
perché non c'era il pavimento.
It was a very nice house
no ceiling, no kitchen;
you could not get into it
because there was no floor.
 
Non si poteva andare a letto
perché non c'era nemmeno il tetto;
non si poteva far la pipì
perché non c'era vasino lì.
You could not go to bed
because there was not even a roof;
you could not make pee
because there was no potty there.
 
Ma era bella, bella davvero
in Via dei Matti numero zero;
ma era bella, bella davvero
in Via dei Matti numero zero.
But it was nice, really nice
at Lunatics' Street number zero;
but it was nice, really nice
at Lunatics' Street number zero.
