C’è La Luna Mezz’ u Mare

C‘è 'na luna mezz' u mare,
mamma mia, m'a maritare.
Figlia mia, a cu te dare?
Mamma mia, pensace tu.
 
Se te piglio lu pesciaiole
isse va, isse vene,
sempe lu pesce mane tene.
Se ce 'ncappa la fantasia
te pesculia, figghiuzza mia.
 
Là lariulà, pesce fritt'e baccalà.
Uei cumpà, nu calamare c’aggi accattà.
