by Giuseppe Palomba (flourished 1769-1825)

Cantate figliuola
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Cantate figliuola  
ch'ha un volto felice
sebben nulla canta
sebben poco dice,
è un dolce richiamo
che tira la gente,
e spesso si sente
da tutti lodar.
Un vezzo, un risetto
che manda d'intorno,
per me ci scommetto
val più del cantar.
