Santa Lucia luntana

Partono ‘e bastimente
                  pe’ terre assaje luntane…
                  Cántano a buordo:
                  só’ Napulitane!
                  Cantano pe’ tramente
                  ‘o golfo giá scumpare,
                  e ‘a luna, ‘a miez’ô mare,
                  nu poco ‘e Napule
                  lle fa vedé…
 
                       Santa Lucia!
                       Luntano ‘a te,
                       quanta malincunia!
                       Se gira ‘o munno sano,
                       se va a cercá furtuna…
                       ma, quanno sponta ‘a luna,
                       luntano ‘a Napule
                       nun se pò stá!
 
                                                                  II
 
                  E sònano…Ma ‘e mmane
                  trèmmano ‘ncopp”e ccorde…
                  Quanta ricorde, ahimmé,
                  quanta ricorde…
                  E ‘o core nun ‘o sane
                  nemmeno cu ‘e ccanzone:
                  Sentenno voce e suone,
                  se mette a chiagnere
                  ca vò’ turná…
 
                       Santa Lucia,

                  Santa Lucia, tu tiene
                  sulo nu poco ‘e mare…
                  ma, cchiù luntana staje,
                  cchiù bella pare…
                  E’ ‘o canto d”e Ssirene
                  ca tesse ancora ‘e rrezze!
                  Core nun vò’ ricchezze:
                  si è nato a Napule,
                  ce vò’ murí!
 
                       Santa Lucia,
