Mandolinata is a Neapolitan song, accompanied by mandolin.

Sera d'està. Pusilleco lucente
Canta ccanzone e addora d'erba 'e mare.
Voglio 'e pparole cchiù d'ammore ardente,
Voglio 'e pparole cchiù gentile e care
Pe' ddì: "Te voglio bbene" a chi mme sente.

Ma d' 'e pparole cchiù carnale e ddoce,
Ne sceglio sulo tre: "Te voglio bbene".
Bella, 'int'ô core tujo sacc'io chi tiene,
Chi sta 'int'ô core mio saje pure tu.

P' 'o mare 'e Napule
Quant'armunia!
Saglie 'ncielo e 'ncielo sentono
Tutt' 'e stelle 'a voce mia.
Voce, ca tennera,
'St'ammore fa.

Notte d'està. Se sò addurmute 'e ccase
E 'o cielo, a mmare, 'nu scenario ha stiso.
Staje 'mbracci'a mme, 'nnucente sò 'sti vase.
Bella, stanotte, te sò frato e sposo.
Stanotte ammore e Ddio songh'una cosa.

Canta e da 'o suonno Napule se sceta,
Ridono 'e vvocche ca se sò vasate.
Tutt' 'e suspire 'e tutt' 'e 'nnammurate,
Suspirano stanotte attuorno a te.

P' 'o mare 'e Napule
Quant'armunia!
Saglie 'ncielo e 'ncielo sentono
Tutt' 'e stelle 'a voce mia.
Voce, ca tennera,
'St'ammore fa.

A summer evening. Lighted Posillipo*
Sings the songs and one can smell the sea grass.
I need the most passionate words of love,
I need the gentle and tender words
To tell "I love you" to her who listens to me.

But of all tender and affectionate words
I choose only three words: "I love you".
My beauty, I know who is in your heart,
And who is in my heart you also know it.

On the sea of Naples
What a harmony!
It's going up to the sky and in the sky
All stars listen to my voice.
My voice that gently
Makes our love grow.

A summer night. All houses are sleeping
And the sky is reflected on the sea like a picture.
You are in my arms, these are the innocent kisses.
My beauty, tonight I'm your brother and husband,
Tonight love and God are the one thing.

Sing and Naples wakes up,
The lips are smiling after kisses.
All the sighs of all lovers
You can hear around tonight.

On the sea of Naples
What a harmony!
It's going up to the sky and in the sky
All stars listen to my voice.
My voice that gently
Makes our love grow.
