Does Anyone Know an Italian Rhyme that Starts with "Si taci"?

Greg wrote asking for help with an Italian lap rhyme. Here’s his email:

"Does anyone remember an old Italian lap rhyme that started si taci, si taci? I could go on but I don’t know the spelling of the first verse. Something like la banna bunk a fa chi."

You can hear an mp3 recording of Si Taci here.

Greg added, “My mother’s family was from the Abbruzzo region (specifically Pietranico) which is near Abbateggio.”

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