Vide 'o mare quant?è bello,
Spira tantu sentimento,
Comme tu a chi tiene mente,
Ca scetato 'o faie sunnà.

Guarda, gua?, chistu ciardino;
Siente, sie? sti sciure arance:
Nu profumo accussi fino
Dinto 'o core se ne va?

E tu dice: "I? parto, addio!"
T?alluntane da stu core?
Da sta terra de l?ammore?
Tiene 'o core 'e nun turnà?

Ma nun me lassà,
Nun darme stu turmiento!
Torna a Surriento,
Famme campà!

Vide 'o mare de Surriento,
Che tesoro tene nfunno:
Chi ha girato tutto 'o munno
Nun l'ha visto comm'a ccà.

Guarda attuorno sti Sserene,
Ca te guardano 'ncantate,
E te vonno tantu bene...
Te vulessero vasà.

E tu dice: "I' parto, addio!"
T'alluntane da stu core
Da sta terra de l'ammore
Tiene 'o core 'e nun turnà?

Ma nun me lassà,
Nun darme stu turmiento!
Torna a Surriento,
Famme campà!

Torna a Surriento,
