Original


Scalinatèlla
longa, longa, longa, longa,
strettulélla, strettulélla,
addó' sta chella 'nammuratèlla?

Nun spónta ancora,
o zuc, zuc, zuc, zuc,
zucculillo, zucculillo,
pe' 'sta viarèlla scarrupatèlla.

Addó' mme ne vogl'í
t''o ddico, e crídeme.
Addó' se ne pò ghí
chi è stanco 'e chiágnere?

Scalinatèlla
saglie 'ncielo o scinne a mmare,
cercammélla, trovammélla,
pòrtame a chella sciaguratèlla.

Chella s'è 'nnammurata 'e nu pittore
ca pitta Capre e parla furastiero,
e i' porto 'mpiétto nu dulore 'e core
e sento che mm'accide stu penziero.

Scalinatèlla
longa, longa, longa, longa,
strettulélla, strettulélla,
addó' sta chella 'nammuratèlla?

Nun spónta ancora,
o zuc, zuc, zuc, zuc,
zucculillo, zucculillo,
pe' 'sta viarèlla scarrupatèlla.

Addó' mme ne vogl'í
t''o ddico, e crídeme.
Addó' se ne pò ghí
chi è stanco 'e chiágnere?

Scalinatèlla
saglie 'ncielo o scinne a mare,
cercammélla, trovammélla,
pòrtame a chella sciaguratèlla.

A ghiuorne, a ghiuorne parte nu vapore.
A ghiuorne 'ammore mio se vótta a mare.

Translation


Little stairway,
long, long, long, long
A bit narrow, a bit narrow
where is she, that little sweetheart?

She still doesn't appear
Zuk, zuk, zuk, zuk,
little clog, little clog,
along this small street a bit messy!

Where would I ever go,
I'll say it to you, and believe me
Where does he could ever go,
someone who's tired to cry?

Little stairway,
climb up to the sky or go down onto the sea
search for her to me, find her to me
bring me that little scoundrel!

That one has falled in love with a painter
who paints Capri and speaks as a foreigner...
so I hold in my chest such a pain into my heart
and I feel this thought 's killing me!

Little stairway,
long, long, long, long
A bit narrow, a bit narrow
where is she, that little sweetheart?

She still doesn't appear
Zuk, zuk, zuk, zuk,
little clog, little clog,
along this small street a bit messy!

Where would I ever go,
I'll say it to you, and believe me
Where does he could ever go,
someone who's tired to cry?

Little stairway,
climb up to the sky or go down onto the sea
search for her to me, find her to me
bring me that little scoundrel!

In the next days a steam-ship will leave...
Within a few days my love will throw itself into the sea!
