Rispetto III  canto popolare

Angiolo delicato fresco e bello
Quanto vi seppe vostra mamma fare!
Nascesse mille voi siete il più bello,
Fiorisce l’erba do’ avete a passare.
Dove avete a passar fiorisce il grano.
Bello, nasceste colle rose in mano.
Dove avete a passar fiorisce il giglio.
Bello, nasceste colle rose in collo.
Dove avete a passar fiorisce il lino.
Bello, nasceste con un gelsomino.

Respect III   folk song   translation by Hélène Lindqvist

As delicate as an angel, fresh and beautiful
that‘s how your mother made you!
Of thousand people you are the most beautiful,
even the grass blooms when you pass by.
When you pass by, the wheat blossoms
Beautiful, you were born with roses in your hands.
When you pass by, the lilies blossom,
Beautiful, you were born with roses around your neck.
When you pass by the jasmine blossoms,
Beautiful, you were born with a jasmine.
