Occhi Tanti-en

Occhi Tanti

 

Cu è ca mi talia

Quannu sugnu in cruci

E strinciu p’un cariri?

‘A casa è china i tia

Quannu sugnu sulu

Iu ti sientu runnegghiè

 

Ma tu nun ti fai abbiriri

Si m’inzierti a chianciri

Ti priu, nun niesciri

Tu hai ru’ occhi tanti 

A biglie jucamucci

 

Cu è ca ti talia

Quannu si ‘a cchiù duci 

E allienti pi moriri?

Di poi t’i portu iu

Spago e du’ bicchieri

Ca ti cuntu a zocchegghiè

 

Ma tu ‘un ti fari abbiriri

Si m’inzierti a chianciri

Già u sai, ‘un ha’ niesciri

Iu haiu l’occhi tanti 

Pi circariti

 

Cu è ca nni quarìa

Quannu nni vasamu

Sulu p’un manciarinni

Si biedda ca ‘un cinn’è

Iu ‘un capisciu nienti

Sugnu iu ca nni talia?

 

Ma nun mi fazzu abbiriri

Si ti inziertu a chianciri

No, ‘un vogghiu niesciri

Ci vonnu ru’ occhi tanti

Pi taliariti

 

Ma ‘unni faciemu abbiriri

Jucamu a taliarinni

E cu vuoli niesciri?

Aviemu l’occhi tanti 

Pi nun ririri

Occhi Tanti

 

Who looks at me

When I’m on the cross

And I tight my hold not to fall?

The house is full of you

When I’m on my own

You are everywhere

 

But you stay out of sight

If you catch me crying

Please, please, don’t go out

You have such small eyes

Let’s play marbles with them

 

Who looks at you

When you are the sweetest one 

And you loosen your hold to die?

I’ll bring them to you, after:

Some string and two cups

And I’ll tell you no matter what

 

But stay out of sight

If you catch me crying

You already know you mustn’t go out

My eyes are this big

‘Cause I’ve been looking for you

 

Who warms us

When we kiss

So that we don’t eat each other

You’re as beautiful as ever

I’m completely lost

Am I the one looking at us?

 

But I stay out of sight

If I catch you crying

No, I don’t want to go out

I really takes two eyes

To look at you

 

Let’s stay out of sight

Let’s play gazing at each other

We’re not going anywhere

Our eyes are this big

As we try not to laugh
