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!

Quele rane via lassé

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Quele rane via lassè
Non fissè a quela misura che vu
Beta, fe un gran mal!

Geri sguarda come el fogo,
grassa come un beccafigo,
e vu adesso se un feral.

Resto assae mortificà
perchè v'amo.. che xè un toco,
benchè vu no lo sapiè.

Ve confesso adesso el vero
che a vederve cussì afflita
propriamente me massè.

Se pecà che quel visin
abia dà in malinconia,
non se vogia un fià esalar.

Se aplichè vu d'esser mia,
Mi so vostro...
Che so tuto qua per vu.

Leave behind your bad moods

Language: English after the Italian (Italiano)

Leave behind your bad moods 
Don't fixate on the things you see
Beta, you'll make yourself ill!

You were passionate like a fire,
plump  like a  figeater bird,
and now you are  thin like a streetlamp.

It truly mortifies me
because  I love you ...that  is a fact,
even though you don't know it.

And to tell you the truth                
to see you afflicted like this
truly  kills me.

It's a pity that your little face
is always so melancholy like this,
and doesn't want  to brighten up.

If you would pledge to be with me,
I would be at your disposal...
Command me!
I am here always for you.
