Nnenne belle 'e 'stu bellu paese,
Cantate, cantate, felice cu' mme!
Primmavera ve porta p' 'e ccase
'Na smania 'e calore, va' trova ched'è?
Sò 'sti rrose ca maggio ha purtato pe' tte,
Rrose 'e maggio, che bellu buchè!

Chist'è 'o mese d' 'e rrose,
Chist'è 'o mese 'e ll'ammore,
Se fa ll'aria addirosa
E nenna scuntrosa,
Scuntrosa nun è.
Chist'è 'o mese d' 'e vase,
Vase ardente e azzeccuse.
Si dimane mme sposo,
Mm' 'a piglio cu 'e rrose,
Cu maggio e cu' tte.

Mm'aggio fatto 'na casa ô paese,
'Nu nido annascuso c' 'o bellovedè.
È 'na casa ca sta 'nParaviso,
'Nu regno 'ncampagna ch'è degno 'e 'nu rre!
Nove mise ce vonno pe' fà 'nu bebè,
Ma cu 'st'aria, n'abbastano tre.

Chist'è 'o mese d' 'e rrose,
Chist'è 'o mese 'e ll'ammore,
Se fa ll'aria addirosa
E nenna scuntrosa,
Scuntrosa nun è.
Chist'è 'o mese d' 'e vase,
Vase ardente e azzeccuse.
Si dimane mme sposo,
Mm' 'a piglio cu 'e rrose,
Cu maggio e cu' tte.

Beautiful, happy girls of this land,
Sing, sing together with me!
The spring brings into your houses
The wish of a heat, guess what's it?
This is the roses that May has brought to you,
Roses of May, what a beautiful bouquet!

This is the month of the roses,
This is the month of love,
The air becomes balmy
And the obstinate girl
Stops to be obstinate.
This is the month of the kisses,
Passionate and affectionate kisses.
If tomorrow I marry
I'll do it with roses,
In May and with you.

I've built a house in this land,
A secret nest with nice terrace.
It's a house in Paradise,
A kingdom in country that's worthy of a king!
We may need nine months to have a baby
But in this cosiness it's enough the three.

This is the month of the roses,
This is the month of love,
The air becomes balmy
And the obstinate girl
Stops to be obstinate.
This is the month of the kisses,
Passionate and affectionate kisses.
If tomorrow I marry
I'll do it with roses,
In May and with you.
