Cust' e' su babbu - Sardinian Children's Songs - Sardinia - Mama Lisa's World: Children's Songs and Rhymes from Around the World  - Intro Image


Another version:

Custu est su procu
Custu dd'at mortu
Custu dd'at abruschiau
Custu si dd'est papau
E a custu pipiu no ndi dd'anti lassau.

English Translation

This one is the pig,
This one killed it,
This one roasted it,
This one ate it
And to this baby they didn't leave any.
