Anzoleta dopo la regata (1835)


Part of a series or song cycle:

La Regata Veneziana


Anzoleta dopo la regata

Ciapa un baso, un altro ancora,
caro Momolo, de cuor;
qua destrachite che xe ora de sugarte sto sudor.
Ah t’ho visto co passando
su mi l’ocio ti a butà
e godito respitrando:
un bel premio el ciaparà…
Sì un bel premio in sta bandiera
che xe rossa de color;
gha parlà Venezia intiera,
la t’a dito vincitor.
Ciapa un baso, benedeto a vogar nissun te pol,
de casada de tragheto ti xe el megio barcarol.

Angelina after the regatta

Take a kiss, another,
dear Momolo, from my heart;
here at your right hand is it time to dry your sweat.
Ah I have seen you in passing
by throwing my glance toward you
and enjoyed whispering:
he will catch a beautiful prize…
Yes this flag is a nice prize,
it is red;
of which all of Venice will talk,
you are called the winner.
Take a kiss, no rower is more blessed than you,
yours is the best name among rowers of ferryboats.
