 Haveva na gallina capelluta
  scodat' e biancole la patanella
  tant' era bella.
  la mia co co co ta,
  la mia co co co co co ta,
  la mia co co co ta, cotella.
  O Dio, o Dio, o Dio,
  chi la trovassi tornamella.

 I had a fluffy hen
   her knees wrapped in white
   she was so beautiful.
   my co co co ta
   my co co co co co ta
   my co co co ta cotella.
   O God, or God, or God,
   whoever found her, return her.
