(E. A. Mario)

Partono 'e bastimente
P' 'e terre assaje luntane,
Cantano a buordo e so' napulitane!
Cantano pe' tramente
'o golfo già scompare,
E 'a luna, 'a miez' 'o mare,
'nu poco 'e Napule
Lle fa vede'...

Santa Lucia,
Luntana 'a te
Quanta malincunia!
Se gira 'o munno sano,
Se va a cerca' furtuna,
Ma quanno sponta 'a luna
Luntana a Napule
Nun se po' sta!

E sonano... Ma 'e mmane
Tremmano 'ncopp' 'e corde...
Quanta ricorde, ahimé,
Quanta ricorde!
E 'o core nun 'o sane
Nemmeno cu 'e canzone,
Sentenno voce e suone,
Se mette a chiagnere
Ca vo' turna'!

Santa Lucia,
Luntana 'a te
Quanta malincunia!
Se gira 'o munno sano,
Se va a cerca' furtuna,
Ma quanno sponta 'a luna
Luntana a Napule
Nun se po' sta!

Santa Lucia tu tiene
Solo 'nu poco 'e mare,
Ma cchiù luntana staie,
Cchiù bella pare!
È 'o canto d' 'e Ssirene
Ca tesse ancora 'e rezze,
Core, nun vo' ricchezze:
Si è nato a Napule
Ce vo' muri'!

Santa Lucia,
Luntana 'a te
Quanta malincunia!
Se gira 'o munno sano,
Se va a cerca' furtuna,
Ma quanno sponta 'a luna
Luntana a Napule
