Cancheri e beccafichi magri arrosto

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Cancheri e beccafichi magri arrosto,
e magnar carne salsa senza bere;
essere stracco e non poter sedere;
aver il fuoco appresso e ’l vin discosto;
        riscuoter a bell’agio e pagar tosto,
e dar ad altri per dover avere;
esser ad una festa e non vedere,
e de gennar sudar come di agosto;
        aver un sassolin nella scarpetta
et una pulce drento ad una calza,
che vadi in su in giù per istaffetta;
        una mano imbrattata ed una netta;
una gamba calzata ed una scalza;
esser fatto aspettar ed aver fretta:
        chi più n’ha più ne metta
e conti tutti i dispetti e le doglie,
ché la peggior di tutte è l’aver moglie.
