O mà, parlami corsu

Aiò o mà parlami corsu
A ti dumandu pé piace
Sai ch'ellu mi gherba troppu
E bramu d'amparallu da tè
Un vogliu esse un saccu viotu
Mà quellu pienu di sapè.
Aiò o mà parlami corsu
Un n'hè che da tè ch'o l'aspettu
Un mi tene altru discorsu
Pè dispaciami u t'affettu
Aiò veni à mio succorsu
Un sghisgia micca lu suggettu.
Parlami a "lingua materna"
Ghjunta da l'alta antichita
E per ch'ella dimori eterna
Aiò parlami corsu o mà
Què a ti dumandu pè strenna
Cumè unica eredità.
Falle cresce a mio cultura
Da umanu vogliu avanza
Alluntanami di a vughjura
Di a gnorente oscurità
Imparami a lingua pura
Ch'o a possi transmette o mà.

Oh, mum, talk to me in Corsican

Come on, mum, talk to me in Corsican,
Please, I'm asking you.
You know I like it so much
And I wish to learn it from you.
I don't want to be like an empty sack,
But like one full of knowledge.
Come on, mum, talk to me in Corsican,
I'm waiting for it only from you.
Don't talk about something else
To make me feel loved by you.
Come on, help me,
Don't avoid the topic,
Talk to me in the "mother tongue",
Which has come from ancient times,
So that it can live forever.
Come on, mum, talk to me in Corsican,
I'm asking for this gift from you
As my only inheritance.
Make my culture grow,
I want to progress as a human,
Stray me away from the dimness
Of the ignorant darkness.
Teach me the pure language,
So that I can pass it on, oh, mum.
 
Thanks!
