Vecchie letrose, non valete niente
Se non a far l'aguaito per la chiazza.
Tira, tira, tir'alla mazza,
Vecchie letrose, scannaros'e pazze!


English.png English translation

Spiteful old hags, you are good for nothing,
Only for lying in wait in the thicket.
Beat, beat, beat with your canes,
Spiteful old hags, murderous and mad!
