Carme', Carme'

Pure st'anno 'a primmavèra
m’e trasuta dint'o còre
cu na smania'e fà l'ammóre,
cu nu fuóco 'e giuventu';
quanno véco na figlióla,
me va ‘o sango dint'a ll'uócchie,
po' me trèmmano 'e denócchie
e nu ‘ngarro niénte cchiu'.
 
Carme' Carme',
tu sóla nun m’abbasti,
me ce ne vònno tre,
Carme' Carme',
i' sóngo 'e bòna pasta,
v'accuntènto a ttutte e tre.
Carme' Carme',
i’ nun 'o ffaccio appòsta
e tu chésto ll'hê 'a sapè.
Carme' Carme',
i’ tèngo a capa tòsta,
tòsta, tòsta
cómm'a cchè.
 
Per ogni uomo tre muglière,
stéva scritto int'o giurnale,
mo na légge speciale
faciarranno e saje pecchè,
pecchè l'uómmene so' pòche,
mèntre ‘a dònna è in abbondanza
me ne vòglio fà na panza,
n'ati ddóje ‘a fòra 'e te.
 
Carme', Carme',
tu sóla nun m’abbasti,
me ce ne vònno tre.
Carme', Carme',
i' sóngo 'e bòna pasta
v'accuntènto a ttutt'e ttre.
Carme, Carme',
i' nun 'o ffaccio appòsta,
e tu chésto ll'hê 'a sapè.
Carme', Carme',
i’ tèngo ‘a capa tòsta,
tòsta, tòsta cómm'a cchè.

Carme', Carme

This year too during spring
it came into my heart
a strong desire to make love,
an ardor of youth;
whenever I bump into a young lady,
blood flows to my eyes,
then my knees start shaking
and I make a fool out of myself.
 
Carmé Carmé
you aren't enough for me,
I need three girls for myself,
Carmé Carmé,
I'm a good-hearted man,
I'll please all of the three.
Carmé Carmé,
I don't do it on purpose
And you got to know that.
Carmé Carmé,
I'm stubborn man
stubborn, stubborn
as hell.
 
To each man go three wives,
it was written on the newspaper,
now they'll enact
A special Act because
men are too few,
while women are way too many
So I want to go overboard
and have two more aside of you.
 
Carmé Carmé
you aren't enough for me,
I need three girls for myself,
Carmé Carmé,
I'm a good-hearted man,
I'll please all of the three.
Carmé Carmé,
I don't do it on purpose
And you got to know that.
Carmé Carmé,
I'm stubborn man
stubborn, stubborn
as hell.
