Marzo: nu poco chiove...
e n'ato ppoco stracqua.
Torna a chiòvere, schiove...
Ie 'o sole cu ll'acqua.

Mo nu cielo celeste...
Mo n'aria cupa e near...
Mo d' 'o vierno 'e 'tempeste...
Mo n'aria 'e primmavera.

N'auciello freddigliuso
 aspetta ch'esce o sole,
ncopp' 'o tterreno nfuso
 suspirano 'e viole...

Catarì, che vuò cchiù?
n'tienneme, core mio,
Marzo, tu 'o ssaje, si' tu,
e st'auciello songj'io!
