Nicholas emailed me asking for help with an Italian song…
My grandmother used to sing me a song, and I learned it but don’t know the correct words. It goes to the melody of Giro Giro Tondo. When I first heard Giro Giro Tondo, I thought perhaps it was another verse to my grandmother’s song which, as I remember it, (and not knowing if the words even make sense) goes:
Cinque e cinquanta,
La se la canta,
Case vuole marita.
If anyone knows if this is part of a larger nursery rhyme or song, please let me know.
Nicholas G. Licata
If anyone can also help Nicholas with the words to his song and/or an English translation, please let us know in the comments below.
Thanks in advance!
