lyrics

O occhi manza mia,
O occhi manza mia, cigli dorati.
O faccia d'una luna,
O faccia d'una luna stralucenti.

Tienemi mente, gioia mia bella,
guardam'un poc'a me, a me, a me, fami contiento.

O bocca come zucaro,
O bocca come zucaro'impanato.
O canna che specchiare,
O canne che specchiare fai la gente.

Tienemi mente, gioia mia bella,
guardam'un poc'a me, a me, a me, fami contiento.

O pietto che conforti,
O pietto chec conforti gli'amalati.
Pieno di fiori'et dolci,
Pieno di fiori'et dolci'acque sorgenti.

Tienemi mente, gioia mia bella,
guardam'un poc'a me, a me, a me, fami contiento.

Per tante quante gratie,
Per tante quante gratie che tu hai.
Ricordati di me,
Ricordati dime perche tu sai.

Che son galante, gioia mia bella,
guardam'un poc'a me, a me, a me, fami contiento.
