Coro ‘e mama

In cust’isola est naschiu, inoche s’est fattu mannu chin onore,
in sa terra ‘e babbu e mama chin printzìpios e valores s’est pesau,
chin su sole su manzanu, chin sos bentos de beranu,
chin sos nuscos de su monte, chin sa luna a s’orizonte,
chin su nibe prus galanu, chin sonazos e tenores,
sos cussizos de un antzianu, siat massaju, siat pastore.
 
Torra in presse, coro ‘e mama, ca deo so isetande in domo
Emigrau dae sa Sardigna, torra in presse, torra como
 
Dae cust’isola est partiu, chin su coro intro ‘e su sacu, chin onore,
saludande sos parentes, sos amicos e sa zente, est emigrau
chin su sole su manzanu, chin sos bentos de beranu,
chin sos nuscos de su monte, chin sa luna a s’orizonte,
chin su nibe prus galanu, chin sonazos e tenores,
sos cussizos de un antzianu, siat massaju, siat pastore.
 
Torra in presse, coro ‘e mama, ca deo so isetande in domo
Emigrau dae sa Sardigna, torra in presse, torra como

Ca deo so isetande in domo

Emigrau dae sa Sardigna
Terra sarda mia
Torra in presse, torra como

Mom’s Darling

In this island he was born, here he grew up with honour,
in dad’s and mom’s land, he was raised with principles and values,
with the morning sun, with spring winds,
with the scent of the mountain, with the moon in the horizon
with the nicest snow, with jingles and bards,
the advice of an elder, whether he was a farmer or a shepherd.
 
Come back quickly, mom’s darling, that I’m waiting at home,
Emigrated from Sardinia, come back quickly, come back now
 
He departed from this island, with his heart inside a bag, with honour,
greeting his relatives, friends and people, he emigrated,
with the morning sun, with spring winds,
with the scent of the mountain, with the moon in the horizon
with the nicest snow, with jingles and bards,
the advice of an elder, whether he was a farmer or a shepherd.
 
Come back quickly, mom’s darling, that I’m waiting at home,
Emigrated from Sardinia, come back quickly, come back now
 
Come back quickly, mom’s darling
Mom’s darling
That I’m waiting at home
My home
Emigrated from Sardinia
My Sardinian land
Come back quickly, come back now
Come back now
