Original


Era il più ammirato nei saloni
per le strane dimensioni.
Si credeva l'uomo più elegante,
più galante, nel suo dìr.

Sempre tutto quanto impomatato,
ricercato nel vestir.
E portava un abito a quadretti,
i baffetti di Charlot.

Era alto così, era grosso così,
lo chiamavan Bombolo.
Si provò di ballar, cominciò a traballar,
fece un capitombolo.

Ruzzolò di qua, rimbalzò di là
come fa una palla.
Per destin fatal, cadde in un canal
ma rimase a galla.

Pei suoi piccoli piè, pel suo grande gilet,
lo chiamavan Bombolo.
E pensavano: "Ahimè, chissà mai cosa c'è
sotto a quel gilet."

Poi ne combinò da sbalordire
quando volle dimagrire.
Un dottore gli ordinò per cura,
acqua pura, niente più.

Lui per far la cura più intensiva
ne inghiottiva tutto il dì.
E così nel mentre si curava,
si gonfiava sempre piò.

Era alto così, era grosso così,
lo chiamavan Bombolo.
Si provò di ballar, cominciò a traballar,
fece un capitombolo.

Ruzzolò di qua, rimbalzò di là
come fa una palla.
Per destin fatal, cadde in un canal
ma rimase a galla.

Pei suoi piccoli piè, pel suo grande gilet,
lo chiamavan Bombolo.
E pensavano: "Ahimè, chissà mai cosa c'è
sotto a quel gilet."

Un bel dì però, il perchè non sò,
guadagnò un milione.
Tanto si gonfiò e si emozionò
che scoppiò il pallone.

La questura indagò quando in pezzi trovò
l'elegante Bombolo.
Dopo un lungo sermon dichiarò in conclusiom:
"L'ammazzò il milion!"

Bombolo, Bombolo....

Translation


He was the most admired in the salons
due to his peculiar proportions.
He fancied himself as more elegant,
more gallant in his speech.

He was always spruced up
and dressed to the nines.
He wore a checkered suit,
and a Chaplin mustache.

He was this1 tall; he was this fat
and they called him The Balloon.
He tried to dance, began to totter,
then took a tumble.

He rolled here and rebounded there,
like a bouncing ball.
His fatal destination was falling in a canal,
but remaining afloat.

Due to his small feet and his voluminous vest
They called him The Balloon
and thought, "Oh my! Who knows what's
beneath that vest!"

The trouble he caused was impressive!
When he wanted to lose weight,
a doctor prescribed a cure:
pure water, nothing more.

To maximize his results,
he guzzled it all day.
And, so as he was cured
he swelled even more.

He was this tall; he was this fat
and they called him The Balloon.
He tried to dance, began to totter,
then took a tumble.

He rolled here and rebounded there,
like a bouncing ball.
His fatal destination was falling in a canal,
but remaining afloat.

Due to his small feet and his voluminous vest
They called him The Balloon
and thought, "Oh my! Who knows what's
beneath that vest!"

One fine day though, why, I don’t know,
he made a million.
He swelled and got so excited
that The Balloon burst.

The police investigated when in pieces they found
The Elegant Balloon.
After a long sermon the conclusion was announced:
“He was murdered by the million!”

The Balloon, The Balloon….
