mi salutati 'dda bedda ciutàti
mi salutati li frati e l'amici
e 'dda poira vicchiaredda di me matri..
Spihàtimi di mia chi si nni dici
si li me cosi sunnu cujitàti
ca siddu voli Diu - comu si dici -
puru iu ci haju a jiri a libbirtàti...

Ah, friends and comrades all, who forth are faring,
My love to fair Palermo ye are bearing
A greeting give to all my friends, my brothers,
A tender greeting, too, for my old mother.
See what in town they all of me are saying,
And see if my affair is growing quiet;
For then, if God so will as I'm praying,
My longing eye in freedom soon shall spy it.
