Varda che passa
la Vilanela.
Come l'è bela,
la fa innamorar!
Look who's passing
the country girl.
How beautiful she is,
she makes you fall in love!
 
O come bali bene bela bimba,
bela bimba, bela bimba.
O come bali bene bela bimba,
bela bimba bali ben!
O come bali bene bela bimba,
bela bimba, bela bimba.
Ma come bali bene bela bimba,
bela bimba bali ben!
O how well you dance pretty girl
pretty girl, pretty girl.
O come bali bene bela bimba,
pretty girl you dance well!
O how well you dance pretty girl
pretty girl, pretty girl.
But how well you dance pretty girl
pretty girl you dance well!
 
Varda quel vecio
sotto la scala.
Osc'è che bala,
Che'l ghà ciapà!
O come bali bene bela bimba [...]
Look at that old man
under the stairs.
Wow how she dances,
he wants to catch her!
O how well you dance pretty girl [...]
 
Guarda quel merlo
Su quella pianta,
Come ben canta,
O che passion.
O come bali bene bela bimba [...]
Look at that blackbird
on that tree,
how fine he sings,
o what passion.
O how well you dance pretty girl [...]
