Can Someone Help with an Italian Kids Song Called “Quand ero piccolino”?

I recently received this email below:

I would like to find the words to a children’s song called “Quand ero piccolino”. A couple of the lines are:

Chi, chi qui belle wa, wa, wa
chi, chi qui belle wa, wa, wa
chi, chi qui belle wa, wa, wa
a ventren drai, a ventren drai
qui belle divertimento
a ventren drai, a ventren drai
sa liva su la don

I am trying to remember the words as I remember them from sound so the words may not be spelled correctly at all.

If you might be able to give me a site or the correct words I would certainly appreciate that. Thanks.

A. Wiebenga

If anyone can help with this song, please let us know in the comments below. Thanks!

    Are these the lyrics you’re looking for…

    I think it’s this one. There are the lyrics (with a Brazilian translation!) and you can hear it sung.

    Yes, this is the song I am looking for. Thanks so much for replying to this request. Do you know how I could get an English translation of this song? I am sorry to have written the language so poorly but you were able to find the right song. Many thanks.

    The issue is that this song has a copyright so it’s kind of tricky to post either the original lyrics or a translation.
