E come lo cerco fra tutta 'sta gente che vie' e che va'
So' tante le strade le piazze e le case de qua' e de la'
E' grande e' troppo grande, e' immensa 'sta mia città
L'ho visto sortanto un momento ma er core 'sta già a trema'
E mo' come faccio a trovallo si l' 'ho da cerca'?
Ndo' 'sta?
E' grande e' troppo grande, e' immensa 'sta mia città
E' grande e' troppo grande, e' immensa 'sta mia città

[Translation from the Roman dialect]
And how can I search him among all these people who come and go
Are many the streets the squares and the houses here and there
It is large it is too large, it is huge this my town
I have seen him just a moment but the heart is already trembling
And now how can I find him if I have to search him?
Where's he?
It is large it is too large, it is huge this my town
It is large it is too large, it is huge this my town
