Sotto un manto di stelle
Roma bella mi appare,
solitario il mio cuor disilluso d'amor.
vuol nell'ombra cantar

Una muta fontana
e un balcone lass?,
o chitarra romana
accompagnami tu.

Suona suona mia chitarra
lascia piangere il mio cuore,
senza casa e senza amore
mi rimani solo tu.

Se la voce ? un p? velata
accompagnami in sordina,
la mia bella fornarina
al balcone non c'? pi?.

Lungotevere dorme
mentre il fiume cammina,
io lo seguo perch? mi trascina con s?
e travolge il mio cuor.

Vedo un ombra lontana
e una stella lass?,
o chitarra romana
accompagnami tu.

Se la voce ? un p? velata
accompagnami in sordina,
la mia bella fornarina
al balcone non c'? pi?.

O chitarra romana
accompagnami tu!
