You can help us modernize! The present website has been online for a very long time and we want to bring it up to date. As of April 20, we are $4,600 away from our goal of $15,000 to fund the project. The fully redesigned site will be better for mobile, easier to read and navigate, and ready for the next decade. Please give today and join dozens of other supporters in making this important renovation possible!

E come vuoi ch'io faccia a stare allegra

Language: Italian (Italiano)

E come vuoi ch'io faccia a stare allegra,
Che meco tu fai sempre il corrucciato?
Ogni cent'anni ci vieni una sera,
E par che tu ci sia stato mandato.
Cgé vieni, se non son contenti i tuoi?
Rendimi il core, e va dove tu vuoi.
Co' tuoi di casa non ci stare in guerra.
Che ciò ch'è scritto in ciel, sarà anche in terra.
Co' tuoi di casa in guerra non ci stare:
Che ciò ch'è scritto in ciel non può mancare.

Wie soll ich fröhlich sein und lachen...

Language: German (Deutsch) after the Italian (Italiano)

Wie soll ich fröhlich sein und lachen gar,
Da du mir immer zürnest unverhohlen?
Du kommst nur einmal alle hundert Jahr,
Und dann, als hätte man dir's anbefohlen.
Was kommst du, wenn's die Deinen ungern sehn?
Gib frei mein Herz, dann magst du weitergehn.
Daheim mit deinen Leuten leb in Frieden,
Denn was der Himmel will, geschieht hinieden.
Halt Frieden mit den Deinigen zu Haus,
Denn was der Himmel will, das bleibt nicht aus.
