La regata veneziana
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Available translation(s): GER
Voga, o Tonio benedeto,
Voga, voga, arranca, arranca:
Beppe el suda el batte l'anca,
Poverazzo el nol pò più.

Caro Beppe el me vecchieto,
No straccarte col te remo;
Za ghe semo, za ghe semo,
Spinze, daghe, voga più.

Ziel pietoso, una novizza
C'ha el so ben nella regada,
Fala, o zielo, consolada,
No la far stentarde più.
