Deh vita allabastrina
Rioseninetta damaschina
Perche tanto martir à chi si muore
Se ben sarò slonzao
Vi vorrò sempre ben fin c'harò fiao fin c'harò fiao
O viso inzuccara
Deh vien ti priego al quia
Che me stilo il ceruello
E vago in bruo
Nuo per nuo.

Oh alabaster life,
little rose, damask rose
Why tormenting him who is dying?
Even if I get drunk
I will love you until I regain spirits.
Oh sugar face,
I beg you, come to me,
I'm going insane
and am breaking down for us.
by Luigi Cataldi
