Piva piva

Lyrics - Italian

(Italian folk song)

Piva piva l’oli d’uliva,
piva piva l’oli d’ulà.
‘L è ‘l Bambin che porta i belé
l’è la mama che spènd i dané.

Piva piva l’oli d’uliva,
gnaca gnaca l’oli che taca.
‘L è ‘l Bambin che porta i belé
l’è la mama che spènd i dané.

Piva piva suna la piva,
piva piva suna ‘l baghèt.
Canta, canta bèla fiùr:
‘l è nasìt ol nòst Signùr

Gh’è gnà fassa, gnà panisèl
per fassà chèl Bambì bèl.
Gh’è gnà fassa, gnà lensöl
per fasà chèl bèl Fiöl.

Sing, sing beautifully,
Our Lord is born

There are no swaddling clothes
No swaddling clothes for the beautiful Child.
There are no swaddling clothes
No sheets for the beautiful Child.
