Chi vuol comprar la bella calandrina,
Che canta da mattino in fino a sera?
Chi vuol comprar la, venga a contratto!

Sempre a buon patto la venderò.
La bella calandrina! Chi vuol comprar la?

È sì gentil, ha così dolce il canto,
E vender la degg’io che l’amo tanto;
Ma questo è il mio mestiere,
No’l fo per piacere! Venga! venga!

Sempre a buon patto la venderò.
La bella calandrina! Chi vuol comprar la?

Who will buy this lovely lark
which sings the livelong day?
Who will buy it? Come and do a deal!

I will sell on good terms.
This lovely lark! Who will buy it?

See how charming it is; its song is so sweet,
And I who love it so much must sell it;
But that is my trade,
I do not do it for pleasure! Come, come!

I will sell on good terms.
This lovely lark! Who will buy it?
