Co sto afar del sì e del no,
moleghe on ponto
moleghe on ponto
molè un ponto tutti do!
With this thing of yes and no,
stop that please!
 
Marieta monta in gondoa
che mi te porto al Lido!
Mi no che no me fido,
ti xè massa un impostor!
Cossa te disi cocola?
Perchè per quel boscheto
Ti m'ha scrocà un baseto
per pissegarme el cuor.
Mary get into the gondola
that I'll take you to the Lido!
I do not trust you,
you are too much an impostor!
What are you saying honey?
Beacuse in thet little wood
you stole me a kiss
to hit my heart.
 
E tiche-tiche-ti, ti ghe disi "no"
ma mi so' che te bate el cuore
tiche-tiche-tà, anca lu lo sa
che a Venessia l'amor se fa
in gondoeta!
Digo no, no ghe vegno no!
Co sto afar del sì e del no,
moleghe on ponto
moleghe on ponto
Co sto afar del sì e del no,
molè un ponto tutti do!
And tiche-tiche-ti, you who say "no"
but I know your heart is beating
tiche-tiche-tà, also your heart knows
that in Vennise love is made
in a gondola!
I say no, I'm not coming, no!
With this thing of yes and no,
stop that please!
 
Ma varda che spetacolo
la luna xè d'argento
No far del sentimento
cossa te vol mi so'.
Sora le tonde cupole,
svolà le colombele
E zònteghe pur le stele
ma no me fido no!
E tiche-tiche-ti [...]
But look what a view
the moon is silver
do not be romantic
what you want I know.
Above the round domes,
flutter small doves
you can also count the stars
I don't trust you, no!
E tiche-tiche-ti [...]
 
Va ben, va ben finimola
mi ciapo un'altra strada
Te fa 'na balossada
no so se te convien!
Mi sercarò Felisita
per farte un bel dispeto
Mi no che no permeto
perchè te voglio ben!
All right, all right let's stop that
I'll take another way
You're doing a stupid thing
I don't know if it is good for you!
I'll look for Felicity
to tease you
I do not allow you
because I'm fond of you!
 
E tiche-tiche-ti, ti ghe disi "sì"
anca mi, sì me bate el cuore,
tiche-tiche-tà, che felisità
a Venessia l'amor se fa
in gondoeta,
in gondoeta,
in gondoeta,
te darò un basin!
E tiche-tiche-ti, you who say "yes"
me too, yes my heart is beating,
tiche-tiche-tà, what happiness
in Venice love is made
in a gondola,
in a gondola,
in a gondola,
I'll give you a kiss!
