Granni Granni

 

Ddà ‘ncapu custruivu una capanna

È china

R’i me’ vasati annigghiati

R’i me’ capiddi er i me’ ragni

Ch’i pittusi chi hannu a rispirari

‘A me’ capanna è granni granni

È granni granni ma

Nun ci veni mai nuddu

 

Ma nun t’alluntanare

Ca ni n’hamu a ghiri

E nun ti preoccupare

Fazzu strata ju

E ‘un ti scantare mai

E nun t’assistimare

Si biedda comu si

Accussì ‘un ni ni jamu cchiù

 

‘A me capanna è fatta ch’i mulletti

È china ‘i denti ‘i latte e di unghia rutte,

Ci misi ‘a me prima bicirietta

È china ‘i signa i cruci e di pittiddi

Cucchiar’i lignu, è china ‘i notti

N’a me capanna ci su avutre capanne

È granni granni, è granni granni ma…

È china di svalanchi!

 

Porta ‘na para ‘i petri

Pi cu ni voli mali

Porta ‘na cosa ‘i viviri

‘Un si pò sapiri mai

E ni strinciemu ddà

Dunni jucava siempre

Jucava cu me’ frate

E nun c’è cchiù tempu

Pi addumannare picchì

P’addumannare dunni

P’addumannare “ma com’è?”

Tantu nun l’hei saputu mai

 

Viu tutti cosi granni granni

Granni Granni

 

Up there I built my hut,

it’s full

Of all my hazy kisses

Of all my hair and my spiders

With holes, so they can breathe!

My hut is really huge

Is really huge but

Nobody ever comes

 

Don’t dash off

We have to go soon

Don’t you worry about it

I will lead you myself

Don’t ever be afraid

And don’t you put make-up on

You’re cute the way you are

This way, we’ll never leave

 

My hut is made with clothespins

It’s full of milk-teeth and broken nails

I put there my first bicycle

It’s full of signs of the cross and confetti

Wooden spoons, it’s deep in the night

In my hut there are many other huts

It’s really huge, it’s really huge but…

Inside it’s full of ledges!

 

Bring a bunch of stones

To keep away the foes

Bring something to drink

You never know

We’ll hold each other there

Where I always used to play

I played with my brother

And there’s no more time to

Keep asking why

Keep asking where

Keep asking “how come?”

‘Cause in the end I never knew

 

I see everything really huge
