Roberto Vecchioni – La Gallina Maddalena lyrics

Venne con la luna rossa,
venne con la luna piena,
dalle ceneri di Gramsci
democratica e serena.
Mangia, mangia per la strada
si credette faraona,
e fu invece solamente
la gallina Maddalena.
Era una gallina vecchia,
ma sembrava sempre nuova,
e ingrass? per quarant'anni,
senza fare mai le uova
