Original


Mm' è arrivata, stammatina,
na cartulina.
E' na veduta 'e Napule
che mm'ha mannato mámmema.

Se vede tutt' 'o Vommero,
se vede Margellina,
nu poco 'e cielo 'e Napule,
'ncopp'a 'sta cartulina!

Napule,
aggio scritto pe' te chesta canzone
e, p' 'o ricordo 'e mámmema,
aggio chiagnuto lacreme 'e passione!

E se vede pure 'o mare
cu Marechiaro.
Mme parla cchiù 'e na lettera
'sta cartulina 'e Napule!

Che gioja, stu Pusilleco,
'sta villa quant' è fina.
Comm' è bello 'o Vesuvio.
Che bella cartulina!

Napule,
aggio scritto pe' te chesta canzone
e, p' 'o ricordo 'e mámmema,
aggio chiagnuto lacreme 'e passione!

Comme tu puó' stá felice
- mamma mme dice -
luntano tanto 'a Napule,
luntano tanto 'a mámmeta?

E soffro mille spáseme,
'ncore tengo na spina
quanno cunfronto 'America
cu chesta cartulina!

Napule,
aggio scritto pe' te chesta canzone
e, p' 'o ricordo 'e mámmema,
aggio chiagnuto lacreme 'e passione!

Aggio scritto pe' te chesta canzone!

Translation


This morning I have received
One postcard.
This is a view of Naples
That my mom has posted to me.

One can see all Vomero,
One can see Mergellina,
And a little of the sky of Naples.
What a beautiful postcard!

Naples,
I have written this song about you
And, remembering my mom,
I have cried by sad tears.

And one can see also the sea
With Marechiaro.
Better than any letter this postcard
Tells me about Naples.

What a joy, what a delight,
This villa how it's fine!
How beautiful is the Vesuvius
On this postcard!

Naples,
I have written this song about you
And, remembering my mom,
I have cried by sad tears.

"How can you be happy –
My mom writes me –
So far from Naples,
So far from your mom?"

And I suffer by thousand torments,
In my heart there's a thorn
When I compare America
With this postcard.

Naples,
I have written this song about you
And, remembering my mom,
I have cried by sad tears.

I have written this song about you!
