Long ago in sunny Napoli
In a little sunlit square
Quite by chance I heard a melody
At a little streetside fair.
Just a simple, carefree melody
Heard while strolling through the town,
Just a simple tune sung happily
By a quaint little streetside clown.
Ciribiribin, a melody
Your heart can toss up to the sky,
Ciribiribin, a song to sing
Whenever things have gone awry.
Ciribiribin, when you feel sad
Just hum it for a little while,
Ciribiribin, soon as you begin,
Ciribiribin, the world will smile.
