Year: 1961

'Ntagliaje 'stu nomme a prora
Ca sò tre anne e cchiù.
Lucia se chiamma 'a varca,
Lucia te chiamme tu.
Ma tu nun mme vuò cchiù bbene,
T'aggio perza, chi sà comme…
E ll'avess' 'a cagnà nomme
A 'sta varca primm' 'e mo.

Voca, voca,
Oje marenaro!
Voca, voca,
Voca fora!
Varca sincera e femmena busciarda
Nun se ponno chiammà c' 'o stesso nomme!
Ohé, mare lucente,
Ohé, stamme a sentì:
O lle ricuorde tutt' 'e giuramente,
O cagne nomme e core pur' a me.

E passano 'e stagione,
Ma 'o nomme tujo sta ccà.
Se ll'accarezza ll'onna,
S' 'o legge e se ne va.
Pur' 'o tiempo, oje bella, è mare,
Primma chiagne e po' s'addorme.
Vanno 'e suonne a chiorme a chiorme,
Notte e ghiuorno 'ncerca 'e te.

Voca, voca,
Oje marenaro!
Voca, voca,
Voca fora!
Varca sincera e femmena busciarda
Nun se ponno chiammà c' 'o stesso nomme!
Ohé, mare lucente,
Ohé, stamme a sentì:
O lle ricuorde tutt' 'e giuramente,
O cagne nomme e core pur' a me.

I have carved your name on a prow
More than three years ago.
Lucia is the name of my boat,
Lucia is your name.
But now you don't love me anymore,
I have lost you, who know why…
And now I have to change
The name of my boat, as soon as possible.

Row, row,
Oh, seaman!
Row, row,
Row far away!
The true boat and the lying woman
Can not be named the same!
Oh, clear sea,
Oh, listen to me:
Either remind her all her oaths,
Or change her name into my heart.

But months go by
And your name is still on my boat.
If the waves caress it,
They read it and then recede.
The time is like the sea, my beauty,
First it rages and then it subsides.
Dreams come to me again and again,
Day and night, only about you.

Row, row,
Oh, seaman!
Row, row,
Row far away!
The true boat and the lying woman
Can not be named the same!
Oh, clear sea,
Oh, listen to me:
Either remind her all her oaths,
Or change her name into my heart.
