Miracol’in natura voglio dire
D’haver sentito al castel di Barletta
N’asinel sordignuolo che ragliava
E un Gallo contrapunto si cantava

English.png English translation

I want to speak about a miracle of the nature
I heard in the castle of Barletta
A Sardinian(?) donkey braying
And a cock singing the counterpoint
