Bene mio! Che disgrazia!
M'è caduto Zuccariello!
Sò perdut'io, puveriello,
Si mo muorto resta ccà.

Ah – ah – ah – ah!
Uh! Cola senza ciuccio,
Puveriello, comme fà?

Pe' pietà a me ajutate!
Sò 'no povero scasato.
Sciorta nera, che giornata,
Non poteva capità!

Ah – ah – ah – ah!
Uh! Cola senza ciuccio,
Puveriello, comme fà?

L'ajzammo mò da terra,
Tu p' 'a coda, i' p' 'a capezza.
Che festino, che priezza
Si lu veco friccecà!

Ah – ah – ah – ah!
Uh! Cola senza ciuccio,
Puveriello, comme fà?

Me portava la menestra
Che senteva de viola,
Torza ricce e pommarola
E cappuccie 'nquantità.

Ah – ah – ah – ah!
Uh! Cola senza ciuccio,
Puveriello, comme fà?

Oh, t'è sciorta! E che veco!
Accommenz'a resciatare!
Chest'è chella scapellata
Che me vole consolà.

Ah – ah – ah – ah!
Uh! Cola senza ciuccio,
Puveriello, comme fà?

Oh te te, ch'è aggraziato!
Vi', la coda tecoleja!
Ah, la vista m'addecrea,
I' me sento scunucchià.

Ah – ah – ah – ah!
Uh! Cola senza ciuccio,
Puveriello, comme fà?

My God! What a misfortune!
My donkey Zuccariello has fallen!
I'm confused, unlucky,
If it dies now, it stays here.

Ah – ah – ah – ah!
Uh! Nicolas is without donkey,
Unlucky, what is he to do?

For God's sake, help me!
I'm a poor loser.
The worst day than this
I never had before!

Ah – ah – ah – ah!
Uh! Nicolas is without donkey,
Unlucky, what is he to do?

Let's raise it from the ground,
You by the tail, I by the bridle.
What a joy, what a gladness
If I see it moving!

Ah – ah – ah – ah!
Uh! Nicolas is without donkey,
Unlucky, what is he to do?

It carted vegetables for me
That smelled like violet,
Cabbage and tomato,
Lettuce and much more.

Ah – ah – ah – ah!
Uh! Nicolas is without donkey,
Unlucky, what is he to do?

Ah, what a fortune! What do I see?
It begins to breathe!
It's the destiny
That wants to console me.

Ah – ah – ah – ah!
Uh! Nicolas is without donkey,
Unlucky, what is he to do?

Oh, what a joy!
Look, its tail is moving!
Ah, it makes me happy,
I feel I lose consciousness.

Ah – ah – ah – ah!
Uh! Nicolas is without donkey,
Unlucky, what is he to do?
