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!
