  • Ritornello delle Lavandare del Vomero (Refrain of the Washerwomen of Vomero)
    Naples (Campania)

    1.
    Tu m'aje prommise quatto muccatora:
    Oje muccatora! oje muccatora!
    Io sò benuto se...
    Io sò benuto se mme le vuò dare,
    Mme le vuò dare, mme le vuò dare!

    2.
    E se no quatto, embè dammene doje,
    Chillo ch'è 'ncuollo a te n'è robba toja.

    1.
    You promised me four kerchiefs, yes, four kerchiefs,
    O yes, four kerchiefs! O yes, four kerchiefs,
    And I have come to see—
    And I have come to see if they are ready,
    If they are ready, if they are ready!

    2.
    And if there are not four, why, give me two, then:
    The one is not your own that you are wearing.
