Dint'a 'na varchetella 'mmiez' ô mare,
'Nnammuratella mia, t'aggi' 'a purtà
Pe' te cantà 'na canzuncella doce
Cu 'nu mutivo ca te fa 'ncantà.

Pe' chistu mare, a core a core,
Guardanno 'o cielo e 'e stelle,
Voglio sunnà.
Ammore mio, pe' tutt' 'a vita,
Strignete forte a mme,
Nun me lassà!

'Nzieme c' 'a luna 'e vase
Se 'ntrecceno cu ll'onne.
Dint'a chist'uocchie tuoje
Io sonno 'a vita mia.

Pe' chistu mare, a core a core,
Guardanno 'o cielo e 'e stelle,
Voglio sunnà.

On a boat to the sea,
My sweetheart, I want to take you out
To sing for you a sweet song
With a tune that captivates you.

In this sea, side by side,
Looking at the sky and stars,
I want to dream.
My love, forever
Hold me close and tight,
Don't leave me!

Together with the moon, our kisses
Are reflected in the waves.
In your eyes
I see my life.

In this sea, side by side,
Looking at the sky and stars,
I want to dream.
