Signor, I gattin' old an' gray,
But—Rosa keess me yestiday.

Joos' yestiday, w'en I am stan'
Right here by my peanutta stan',
A granda lady, beeg an' fine,
Weeth leeps joos' like Eetalia's wine,
Ees com' in soocha fina car
An' ask how mooch peanuttas are.
Her hair so black, her han' so small
I say, "You notta pay at all."
An' she ees joomp from off da seat,
An' keessa me—oh, my, so sweet!
Not like da kees from child or wife,
But deeferent, you bat my life!

Signor, I gattin' old an' gray,
But—Rose keess me yestiday!
