PEPPINO THE ITALIAN MOUSE
The complete lyrics and translation of Peppino.


Peppino ...the Italian Mouse
 
Signore e signori io mi chiamo Peppino o suricillu
Ladies and Gentlemen my name is Peppino the Little Mouse.

And what a mulignana (eggplant0

Peppino o you little mouse o won't you go away,
Find yourself another house to run around and play
You scare my girl you eat my cheese you even drink my wine,
I try so hard to catch you but you trick me all the time.

Ce sta nu suricillo abbasciu u cell arretu u muru
There is a small mouse in the cellar behind the wall
Ogni sera quell esce quannu a casa e` scura
Every evening he comes out when the house is dark
Indu u mienzu ra cucina abballa sulu sulu
In the middle of the kitchen dances all alone
ma pare nu malandrino pura a gata 'ssa paura
Looks like a bad boy even the cat gets scared

Peppino u suricillo ma fattu scubari`,
Peppino the little mouse embarrassed me
Mannaggia u suricillo a ca` si 'nna dda` i
Darn the little mouse from here he has to go
Stasira inda cucina nu pocu e vino aggia` lassa`
Tonight in the kitchen I'm going to leave a little wine
E quannu si mbriaga a Peppino aggia` ngappa`
And when he gets drunk Peppino I gotta catch

Ma tu chi si …Siciliano?
But are you …Sicilian?

No! I'm Calabrese you nut!

The other night I called my girl I asked her could we meet,
I said lets go to my house we could have a bite to eat,
And as we walked in through the door she screamed at what she saw,
There was little Peppino doing the cha cha on the floor.

 
Peppino u suricillo ma fattu scumbari`,
Mannaggia u suricillo a ca` si 'nna dda` i
Stasira ind a cucina nu pocu e vino aggia` lassa`
E quannu si mbriaga a Peppino aggia` ngappa`

Ma come finiu?    … a schifio?!!
How did it end?   … It didn't work out???

If I ever catch you I'ma gonna throw you right in a bagnarola (wash tub)
Chello nun gi piace u formaggio American
He doesn't like the American Cheese
Chello va truvannu nu poco e parmungianu
He goes lookin for a bit of parmesan
Se fattu chiatto chiatto cu sta vita buona
He's gotten chubby chubby with the good life
E quannu chill cammina pare proprio nu galanduomu
And when he walks, looks like a proper gentleman

Peppino u suricillo ma fattu scumbari`,
Mannaggia u suricillo a ca` si 'nna dda` i
Stasira inda cucina nu pocu e vino aggia` lassa`
E quannu si mbriaga a Peppino aggia` ngappa`

Eurizi (The guy's name) I gatta present for you

Ah your a nice mouse

Close your eyes  ...now put your hands in the box.

Oooo mannaggia u suricillo mma scasciato a mano
Oooo darn the little mouse has smashed my hand
A mouse trap

O sole mio (few words of an Italian song).

Eh malandrino! (Eh bad boy!)

Oi Mari...
