Creature

Criature
Figlie ’e na mamma màrtire
Ca se chiagne nu marito
Muórto acciso o carcerato
 
Criature
Orfano ’e stato
Ca se ne fuje 'a dint’a scola
E crésce 'mmiez'a na via jettato
 
Criature
Cu tant'arraggia ‘ncuórpo
E cu na pistola 'mmano
 
Criature
Ca s’hanno 'mparat’a ss’arrubbà
Tutto chello ca nun c’ate dato
 
Criature
Crisciute a ppane e paura
E pe ce fa perdunà
A diec’anne c’ammo miso nu motorino 'mmano
 
Criature
Appise a nu canciello
Aspettanno nu colloquio
Sott'e mura 'e Puceriale
 
Criature
Ca s’anno visto 'e s’accìdere
'E s’accìdere frat’e frate
 
Criature
Ca s’hanno 'mparato a ss’arrubba’
Tutto chello ca nun c’ate dato
 
Sanghe sanghe
Ve sucate tutt’o sanghe
Gente gente
Ve scurdate ’e chésta gente
Spare spare
Nun 'e ssiénte chisti spare
Mamma mamma
Sta chiagnenno n’ata mamma
 
Fotte fotte
'O stato fotte e se ne fotte
Notte notte
Sta passanno n'ata notte
Panne panne
Sempe stise chisti panne
Ride, chiagne
Vuje rerite e ccà se chiagne
 
Criature
Cu tant'arraggia ’ncuórpo
E cu na pistola 'mmano
 
Criature
Ca se fanno curaggio
Uno cu n’ato
A bòtte ’e cocaina e camorra ’ncapa
 
Criature
Figlie ’e na tèrra nèra
Abbandunata sòtt’o sóle
Dint’ mman'e chi ’a vo’ male
 
Criature
Ca vònn’essere uómmene
Spietate e rispettate
 
Sanghe sanghe
Ve sucate tutt’o sanghe
Gente gente
Ve scurdate ‘e chésta gente
Spare spare
Nun 'e siente chisti spare
Mamma mamma
Sta chiagnènno n’ata mamma
 
Fotte fotte
'O stato fotte e se ne fotte
Notte notte
Sta passanno n'ata notte
Panne panne
Sempe stise chisti panne
Ride, chiagne
Vuje rerite e ccà se chiagne
 
Criature
Cu tant'arraggia ’ncuórpo
E cu na pistola 'mmano
 
Criature
Ca sènz'o ssape’
Stanno facenno 'a fine d'o pate

Kids

Kids
Sons of a martyred mother
Who mourns for a husband
Murdered or prisoner
 
Kids
A State orphan,
Who escapes from school
And grows up being thrown into a street
 
Kids
With so much rage inside
And with a gun in their hands
 
Kids
Who have learned to steal
Everything you didn’t give them
 
Kids
Raised with bread and fear
And to be forgiven
We gave them a scooter at ten years
 
Kids
Hanging by a gate
Waiting for an interview
Below the walls of Poggioreale1
 
Kids
Who saw people killing themselves
And brothers killing each other
 
Kids
Who have learned to steal
Everything you didn’t give them
 
Blood, blood
You suck all the blood
People, people
You forget these people
Shots, shots
Don’t you hear these shots
Mom, mom
Another mom is crying
 
Fuck, fuck
The State fucks and doesn’t give a fuck
Night, night
Another night is passing
Clothes, clothes
Always clothes hanging
Laugh, cry
You laugh and we are crying here
 
Kids
With so much rage inside
And with a gun in their hands
 
Kids
Taking courage
Each other
By shooting cocaine and camorra in their minds
 
Kids
Sons of a black land
Abandoned under the sun
In the hands of those who hate them
 
Kids
Who want to be men
Ruthless and respected
 
Blood, blood
You suck all the blood
People, people
You forget these people
Shots, shots
Don’t you hear these shots
Mom, mom
Another mom is crying
 
Fuck, fuck
The State fucks and doesn’t give a fuck
Night, night
Another night is passing
Clothes, clothes
Always clothes hanging
Laugh, cry
You laugh and we are crying here
 
Kids
With so much rage inside
And with a gun in their hands
 
Kids
Who without knowing it
Are ending up like their father

Molte grazie a Pietro Lignola per la revisione dell'ortografia napoletana e per avermi chiarito il senso di alcune espressioni oscure.

With many thanks to Pietro Lignola for arranging the Neapolitan spelling and for explaining some obscure expressions.
