Vinniru ca
di notti a la tunnara
li varchi cu li latri Livantini

'Ntisi li vuci di li marinara
'Ntisi chiamari a tutti li vicini

Di notti e notti
cu scappa e cu spara
cu è jiccatu 'mbarca cu catini

S'iddu la matri Maria nun arripara
cademu 'mmanu a sti cani scintini.


The pirates’ ships have come to this gulf at night.
I’ve heard the sailors’ voice.
I’ve heard the neighbours’ calling.

All night long
there are those who try to escape
and those who shoot and fight.
Someone is in chain
and he is thrown into the ships.

If Mother Mary doesn’t save us
we’ll fall in the hands of these fucking bastards
