Here they are:

NU BELLO CARDILLO

Sto crescenno nu bello cardillo
quanta cosa che l'aggiu impara
a da ire da chisto e da chillo
l'immasciata pe me a da porta

Siente ca, bello mio, lo commanne
C'e na casa, na nena nce sta
tu la vide che nun e distante
che la nena a gi a truva.

Si la truovi che face durmenno
pe na fata nun l'ha da pija
nu rumore nun fa co le penne
ue, cardi, l'avessi a sceta

Si affaciata po sta a lu barcone (balcone?)
pe na rosa l'avessi a pija
ue cardi, vide la nenna
va facenno, cardi, addura.

Se la trovi che face l'ammore
stu curtiello nasconnete a ca
o cuncilla dritto a lu core
e lo sanghe tu m'hai da porta

Ma si piensa co te piano piano
Zitto zitto tu l'ha da azzecca
se a pero te vo co la mano
presto in petto tu l'hai da zumpa

Mara, these words were printed on the jacket of a version of Joan Baez in Concert that was released in Japan. I can't put in the accent marks for you and I am suspicious of the "r" in "barcone" -- I think the word is "balcone" (listen to it on your recording). But this should get you started.

Molto grazie, Sharyn!

The words seem to be in a dialect that differs a bit from the Italian I learned in Firenze. ("Core" instead of "cuore," "ammore" instead of "amore," and "nu" instead of (I assume) "un'" or "uno.") Also that "nce" is a typo, isn't it?

Which words are supposed to have accent marks? (IIRC, Italian does not use many of them. I can usually type Italian lyrics on my keyboard without having to use them.) If you could indicate the word(s) and the name of the accent mark(s) -- e.g., acute accent, grave accent, I can add them using Word.

Grazie ancora,

Gini

Hey Genie, I'm off to work in a minute -- I'll have to give you the accent information later. But it is my understanding that this song is in Portuguese, not Italian (I don't speak either, I speak Spanish and a few words of Irish, studied Latin).

This seems to be the one (not the Baez version), from HERE.

LU CARDILLO
(Autori anonimi)

Stò criscenno 'nu bello cardillo
Quanta cose che l'aggia 'mparà
adda ire da chisto e da chillo
li masciate po' m' adda purtà.

Siente cca bello mio loco 'nnante
'nce 'na casa 'na nenna 'nce stà
tu la vide ca non è distante
chella nenna aje da ire a truvà

si la truove ca stace durmenno
pe 'na fata guè nun la piglià
nu rommore nun fa cu li penne
guè cardì tu l'avissa scetà

si affacciata po' sta a lu balcone
pe 'na rosa l'avissa piglià
guè cardì vi ca lla nun te stuone
va vatenne cardì 'nnaddurà

si la truove che face l'ammore
stu curtiello annascunnete cca
'nficcancillo deritto a lo core
e lo sanghe tu m'aje da putà

ma si penza vattè chianu chianu
zitto zitto te 'nciaje d'azzeccà
si afferrà po te vo cu la mano
priesto 'mpietto tu l'aje da zumpà

si te vase o t'afferra cianciosa
tanno tu l'aje da dire accussì
lu patrone pe te nun reposa
puveriello pecchè hadda murì

t'accarezza te vasa ah viato
cchiù de me tu si cierto cardì
si cu tico cagnarme m''e dato
doppo voglio davvero murì

Everything I found said "Bello" not "Bella" but I didn't find any lyrics at all.

O.K, here I am, back again. The first six stanzas of Masato's first version are a lot like the Joan Baez version I gave you and, Genie, you can take the accent marks from his text. No, I don't think "nce" is a typo -- Masato gives "'nce" for it. The only typo I made above is "affaciata": it should be "affacciata." And Sorcha, you are correct, it is "bello," not "bella."

Any further questions about this text that I can help you with?

"Lu cardillo" sung by a male singer [Real Audio], from HERE.

I see from Masato's link that it is Neapolitan (like "O Sole Mio" and a number of other popular "Italian" favorites). That would explain the variant dialect/spelling.

Yes, it is a Neapolitan song. The "cardillo" is a little bird, a goldfinch. The singer asks the little bird to be his messenger, and to fly to the woman he loves. If the little bird finds his beloved asleep, he must not make any noise with his wings not to awake her, but if he finds her making love with someone else, he must stab her to death with a knife the singer says he'll give him. But what the singer really wants the little bird to do, is to tell this woman that his master can't sleep any more because of her. And if she embraces and kisses the little bird, the singer would give his life to be at the lucky little bird's place just for a moment...

LO CARDILLO

Stó' criscenno no bello cardillo...
quanta cose ca ll'aggi''a 'mpará:
Ha da ire da chisto e da chillo,
li 'mmasciate isso mm'ha da portá!...
Siente ccá bello mio: llòco 'nnante,
nc'è na casa, na nénna nce sta,
tu la vide ca nun è distante:
chella nénna haje da ire a trová!

Si la truove ca stace dormenno,
pe' na fata, gué, non la pigliá...
No rommore non fá co' li ppenne...
gué, cardí', tu ll'aviss''a scetá!?
Si affacciata po' sta a lo barcone,
pe' na rosa ll'aviss''a pigliá?
Gué, cardí', vi' ca llá tu te stuone...
va' vatténne cardí', nn''addurá!...

Si la truove ca face ll'ammore,
'sto cortiello annascùnnete ccá...
'Nficcancillo deritto a lo core
e lo sango tu mm'haje da portá...
Ma si penza...vatté' chiano chiano,
zitto zitto te nce haje da azzeccá,
Si afferrá po' te vò' co' la mano,
priesto 'mpietto tu ll'haje da zompá...

Si te vasa o t'afferra cianciósa,
tanno tu ll'haje da dire accossí:
"Lo patrone pe' te non reposa...
poveriello, pecché ha da morí?"
T'accarezza, te vasa...ah, viato
cchiù de me tu si' certo cardí'...
Si co' tico cagnarme mm'è dato,
voglio, doppo, davvero morí!
