Luna Mezz 'O Mare

C'e la luna mezz'o mare Mamma mia me maritari,
Figghia mia, a cu ta ddari Mamma mia pensaci tu´
Si ti dugnu pisciaiolu (Se te piglia t` o pescaiole)
Iddu va, iddu veni
Sembe lu pisci in mano tene
C'e la luna mezz'o mare Mamma mia me maritari,
Figghia mia, a cu ta ddari Mamma mia pensaci tu´
Si ti dugnu pisciaiolu
Iddu va, iddu veni
Sembe lu pisci in mano tene
Si ci piglia la fantasia
Ti pisciulia a figghia mia.
Refrain:
Ue Mamma, me voglio marita
Ue Mamma quand e bella baccala.
Ue Mamma piscia fritta baccala.
Me vogliu na gualgliotte che mi voglia maritar
C'e la luna mezz'o mare Mamma mia me maritari,
Figlia mia, a cu te dari Mamma mia pensaci tu´
Si ti duniu o muradoriIddu va, iddu veni
La cazola in manu tene.
Se ci incapala fantasia (sei ci chiara la fantasia )
Te cazolia la figghia mia.
Chorus...

    It's not romantic at all, it is a little dirty. It is about a daughter asking her mother whom she should marry. It is in the naplolatano dialect, and not really dante italian, but close enough for a rough translate.

    There is a moon in the middle of the sea, mother of mine, marry me (i.e. Get me married). Daughter of mine, who do you want (to marry), mother, it is up to you.

    You can marry a fisherman, he will go and he will come, but he will always have his fish (guess what this implies) in his hand.

    Hey mamma, i want to get married.
    Hey mamma, pretty salted codfish.
    Hey mamma, fried fish, salted codfish
