Cristina wrote asking for help with a childhood song her grandma sang to her.  Here’s her note:

Mama Lisa,

I am trying to figure out the name of a song my Nonna used to sing to me as a baby. She is from Bari and I cannot find the song anywhere. It went something like “chic de lo spanda lo.. e la gatto cucinare, e lo topo a ballare”.

Can you help?

Thank you,

Cristina

A loose English translation of this song would be: "the spilling of (something) .. and the cat cooks, and the mouse dances."

If anyone can help with the Italian words to this song, please comment below.

Thanks!

Mama Lisa
