TEXT

Refrain: El grillo e buon cantore
che tiene longo verso,
Dale, beve,grillo, canto,
El Grillo e buon cantore.
Ma non fa come gli altri uccelli
Come li han cantato un poco.
Van’ de fatto in altro loco sempre
el grillo sta pur saldo.
Quando la maggior el caldo.
Alhor cantata sol per amore.
(repeat refrain)
 
The cricket is a fine singer
who sings long a mating song
which he gets drunk on.
The cricket is a fine singer.
He is different from the
other small animals
as he moves about as he sings.
He is devoted to his song,
for during the hottest time of day,
he sings for love alone.
