Si maritau Rosa

(Rosa has married)




Sicilian folk song.



Gian Campione
(1946 - 2005)
sings


Vinni la primavera,
Li mennuli sù 'nciuri
A ttia 'nfocu d'amuri,
Lu cori t'addumò.

Ri quanti beddi giuvini
Ca passanu pi 'sta strata,
Nuddu di 'na taliata
Digna la casa tò.

Si maritau Rosa,
Saridda e Pippinedda
E tu ca sì 'a cchiù bedda
Nun ti pò marità.

L'aceddi s'assicutunu
Facennu discurseddi.
Ah, quanti cosi beddi
Ca ti fannu sunnà.

E tu tra peni e lacrimi
Ristruggi la tò vita.
Tu ti vò fari zita,
Tu ti vò marità.

Si maritau Rosa,
Saridda e Pippinedda
E tu ca sì 'a cchiù bedda
Nun ti pò marità.

The spring has come,
The almonds are in blossom
And you are burning from love,
Your heart is inflamed.

How many beautiful guys
Are passing by this street
But no one takes a look
At your house.

Rosa has married,
Sarah and Giuseppina too,
And you, the most beautiful,
You can't get married.

The birds are flying after each other,
Doing twitterings.
Ah, how many beautiful things
They make you listen.

But you, in sufferings and tears,
You destroy your life.
You want to be a bride,
You want to get married.

Rosa has married,
Sarah and Giuseppina too,
And you, the most beautiful,
You can't get married.
