Piscatore 'e pusilleco

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Piscatore 'e stu mare 'e Pusilleco
ch'ogne notte mme siente 'e cantá,
piscató', sti pparole só' lacrene
pe' Maria ca luntana mme sta!...

Dorme 'o mare...Voca, voca...
Tutt'è pace attuorno a me...

Ma pecché,
ma pecché mm'hê lassato,
mentr'io moro, stanotte, pe' te!?

Casarella d''o Capo 'e Pusilleco,
spónta 'a luna e te vène a vasá...
Quanta notte aggio perzo guardánnote,
quanta juorne aggio visto schiará!...

Dorme 'o mare...Voca, voca...

Zitto oje core, ca 'nterra Pusilleco,
veco n'ombra ca segno mme fa...
Na manélla e na voce mme chiámmano:
fra sti bbracce Maria vò' turná...

Dorme 'o mare...Oje bella viene!...
'Ncielo 'a luna saglie e va...

Vita mia!
Vita mia mme vuó' bene?
Ca si è suonno nun farme scetá...

Dorme 'o mare...Voca, vo'...
