No giorno t'haggio havere intra ste mane
sence dovesse perdere le zappe,
fugimi quanto voi che non mi scappi.

Non ce pensare no la scia se trame
fingi sentita e da che non ce'n cappi,
fugimi quanto voi che non mi scappi.

Me stratii e me beffaggi come cane
et io papieto'n ce stongo a se mappi
fugimi quanto voi che non mi scappi.

Dove va trenta ben puo ir trenta uno
ch'io t'aggio haver al dispetto d'ognuno,
fugimi quanto voi che non mi scappi.

Some day I shall catch hold of you,
Even if I should ruin my shoes.
Run away as much as you want, for you can’t escape me.

Don’t consider it, don’t give up all your tricks,
Mind you, don’t get caught up in it.
Run away as much as you want, for you can’t escape me.

You torture me and tease me like a dog,
And I, greedy old man, put up with all your schemes.
Run away as much as you want, for you can’t escape me.

Where there’s room for thirty, one more can go,
For I shall get hold of you despite everyone.
Run away as much as you want, for you can’t escape me.
