Me xe stà dito, e me xe stà contà

Language: Italian - Venetian (dialect)

Me xe stà dito, e me xe stà contà,
Che Toni belo no pol magnar gnente.
L'è tanto co una tosa incapricià,
Che sète pani no ghe toca un dente.
E dopo cena l'à magnà un salà,
Con altri venticinque pani arente.
E se Tonina bela no ghe cría,
Vegniva l'ano de la carestia.

Ich ließ mir sagen und mir ward erzählt

Language: German (Deutsch) after the Italian - Venetian (dialect)

Ich ließ mir sagen und mir ward erzählt,
Der schöne Toni hungre sich zu Tode;
Seit ihn so überaus die Liebe quält,
Nimmt er auf einen Backzahn sieben Brote.
Nach Tisch, damit er die Verdauung stählt
Verspeist er eine Wurst und sieben Brote,
Und lindert nicht Tonina seine Pein,
Bricht nächstens Hungersnot und Teurung ein.
