C’é una coc ca nera? No, no, no!
Tre volte vado ingiro, tre volte non la trovo.
Tu sei bella, tu sei bella, tu sei la più bella!


Where is a black hen?
No, no, no!
I go three times around,
Three times, cannot find it.
(looking at another hen)
You’re beautiful, you’re beautiful,
You’re the most beautiful!
