CARA MAMA IO SONO MALATA
(Traditional Italian)

Cara mama io sono malata
Ma una cosa nell'orto ci sta
E nell'orto ci sta l'insalata*
Si tu la vuoi, io te la do

CHO: Oh, mama no, no, no!
Questo fa male pel male che ho!
Oh, quant' e stupida la mama mia!
Che no conosce la mala tia!
Oh, mama no, no, no!
Questo fa male pel male che ho!

(*Subsitute "la patata" in second verse, "il pomidoro," in third verse, etc.)

Cara mama io sono malata
Ma una cosa nell'orto ci sta!
E nell'orto ci sta l'ortolano
Si tu la vuoi, io te la do

CHO: Oh mama, si, si, si!
Questo va bene par farmi guari!
O quant' e cara la mama mia,
Che conosciuto la malattia
Oh mama, si, si, si!
Questo va bene par farmi guari!

OH, DEAR MAMA, I'M FEELING SO BADLY
(English translation by Win Stracke)

"Oh, dear mama, I'm feeling so badly!
Go to the garden and find me a cure."
"Yes, my daughter, I'll pick you some lettuce*,
And it will make you feel better, I'm sure"

CHO: "Oh, mama, no, no, no!
That would be bad for me, mama, I know.
Why can't you stop being stupid and find me
Something that's good for me and won't upset me?
Oh, mama, no, no, no!
That would be bad for me, mama, I know."

(*Subsitute "potatoes" in second verse, "tomatoes," in third verse, etc.)

"Oh, dear mama, I'm feeling so badly!
Go to the garden and find me a cure."
"Yes, my daughter, I'll bring you the gardener,
And he will make you feel better I'm sure."

CHO: "Oh, mama, yes, yes, yes!
That is exactly the thing that I need.
Where in the world is there such a mother?
Search as I might, I could ne'er find another.
Oh, mama, yes, yes, yes!
Go find the gardener and bring him with speed."

From the book, "Songs of Man," by Win Stracke
