    I’m checking with my neighbors. Their parents were from Bari.

    Thanks Joe!

    Dear Lisa,

    I am Italian, from northern Italy. I think that the woman has spelled the word unproperly maybe. I only know “TU SCENDI DALLE STELLE”, a Christmas song whose name remembers the one you talked about.

    I hope it helped!

    Big hugs

    Thanks for writing Marta! There were some other questions my readers had about Italian songs and rhymes. I wonder if you know any of those? They’re at this link. We appreciate any help. Have a lovely holiday! Lisa

    Here’s another Italian question:


    I saw your site and I was wondering if you could help me find an old rhyme my Italian grandmother used to say to us kids.

    I have no idea what it was called or even how to spell it. I can only remember that it started out with, ‘cuesta una bella piazza’ and it went on to say something about a pupazza, pecoralla and at the very end, she would run her fingers up our forearms while saying (spelled wrong) … que fa fa fa fa fa …

    I would really like to know what this was if you have any ideas.

    Thanks so much,

    Does anyone have the words to a song called La Mia Mamma? It has 7 or 8 verses that address the days of the week, and the verses build in length. I’ve heard it on an Italian recording I have, but have been unable to locate lyrics.

    Dear Lisa, my grandmother (from Rome) also used to say the one about the Piazza… I guess they both used the third version on this site:
