Hello Mama Lisa. I really enjoy your website. Grazie!
I am an adult learning Italian, and would like an easy Italian children’s song to teach my American students.
I know the song “Come to see my farm” (Mi Chacra) in Spanish, and would LOVE to find it translated into Italian. Do you know of any such translation? If not, I can use the McDonald’s farm translation.
Also, have you any info on “Mano Mano Morte”? My mother, from Salerno region, used to play this with me–shaking my hand, which was “dead,” there was a wolf at the door, etc. Do you have the words?

We have the Italian version of Old Mc Donald Had a Farm with a literal English translation. You can click the link to get to the song page.
If anyone can help out with “Mano Mano Morte” or “Come to see my farm” (Mi Chacra), please comment below. (I’d also love to be able to post the lyrics to “Mi Chacra” in Spanish and English, if anyone can provide those.)
