Espremute arancia, red tomatoes 

Vespas that go “beep beep”

The sun is hot, the verb I forgot 

La strada so busy, I can’t  sleep 

Gelato limone, nocciolo, Nutella

Cobbled streets make it hard to walk 

I forget the words, the verbs and phrase 

I struggle with the language, it’s hard to talk 

Arancini my favourite, risotto balls 

Simple yet oh so scrumptious 

Due cappuccini e due panini 

Wonder and look at the market stalls

The noise, the heat, the sea so blue 

The wine tastes of the sun

If you’re sad come here, in need of a beer?

But one rule applies, you gotta have fun!

Ato, ito, uto

Hook on to speak in the past 

Remember the formula and you’ll get by

Non ho capito, you speak so fast!
