Quando sono tenerelli

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Quando sono tenerelli,
cento cure e cento mali.
Quando sono grandicelli,
o son sciocchi o son bestiali.
E si strilla e si contende
e la madre li difende.
Oh che spine in mezzo al cor!
E se arrivano in età,
che piacere a noi si dà?
Se son maschi, mille vizi.
Se son donne, precipizi.
Ah chi figlio alcun non ha
è felice e non lo sa.
