Calabrisella mia

Nina ti vitti all'acqua chi lavavi
E lu me cori si jinchiu d'amuri.
Mentre li panni a la sipala 'ampravi
Io t'arrobbai lu megghiu muccaturi.
Nina, I saw you at the fountain washing
and my heart was filled with love.
while you were hanging the laundry on the hedge
I stole the most beautiful handkerchief
 
Calabrisella mia, Calabrisella mia,
Calabrisella mia, Facimmu amuri
Calabrisella mia, Calabrisella mia,
Calabrisella mia, let us love
 
Tirullalleru, lalleru lallà
'sta Calabrisella muriri mi fa!
Tirullalleru, lalleru lallà
this Calabrisella makes me die!
 
Quandu pe' studiu jivi a la cittàdi
Bedda non vitti a nudda com'a tia
Pensai cu pena a s'occhi nnamurati
E 'nta stu muccaturi ti ciangìa.
When I went to study in the city
None I saw as beautiful as you
I thought with pain to your loving eyes
And in this handkerchied I cried.
 
Calabrisella mia, sta vucca d'incantari
Calabrisella mia, fammi baciari.
Calabrisella mia, sta vucca d'incantari
Calabrisella mia, let me kiss you.
 
Tirullalleru, lalleru lallà
'sta Calabrisella muriri mi fa!
Tirullalleru, lalleru lallà
this Calabrisella makes me die!
 
Mo chi di la città jeu su turnatu
Me guardi e me sorridi malandrina
Dassaria tuttu lu meu dutturato
Sulu p'aviri a tia sempri vicina.
Now that I'm back from the city
you look at me, naughty, and smile at me
I would give all my doctorate
just to have you near!
 
Calabrisella mia, daria la me vita
Calabrisella mia sulu pe tia.
Tirullalleru, lalleru lallà
'sta Calabrisella muriri mi fa!
'sta Calabrisella muriri mi fa!
Calabrisella mia, I would give my life
Calabrisella mia only for you.
Tirullalleru, lalleru lallà
this Calabrisella makes me die!
this Calabrisella makes me die!
