‘A sunnambula

Carmela è na bambola,
                         e fa ‘ammore cu me…
                         Ma ‘a mamma è terribile:
                         Nun mm”a vò’ fá vedé…
 
                         Allora aggio truvato
                         nu bellu ritrovato:
                         Carmela fa ‘a sunnambula
                         pe’ mme vení a truvá…
 
                          E fa scema a mammá!
 
                E cu ‘a scusa ch’è na sunnambula,
                chesta bambola, nèh, che fa?
                Tutt”e ssere, pe’ copp’a ll’ásteco,
                vène a ll’ùnnece a passiggiá…
 
                ‘Ncopp’a ll’ásteco ce stóngh’io
                e lle dico: “Stó’ ccá pe’ te…”
 
                                 E ‘a sunnambula,
                                 ch’è na bambola…
                                 fa ‘a sunnambula
                                 ‘mbracci’a me!
 
                                                             II
 
 
                         ‘O pate, ‘On Arcangelo,
                         pe’ dispietto nun vò’…
                         Lle sóngo antipatico
                         e mm’ha ditto ca no…
 
                         Ma a me che mme ne ‘mporta?
                         Io tengo aperta ‘a porta…
                         Carmela, comm”o ssolito,
                         mme vène a cunzulá…
 
                         E fa scemo a papá!!
 
                E cu ‘a scusa ch’è na sunnambula,
