Traditional Sicilian

Quanno nascette Ninno a Betelem me,
E rannotee pa rea miezo journo
Maje le stelle, lusteree belle,
Seve dettero accusi!
La chiu lucen to
Jet tea chiamma li
Magi, in Oriente

English Translation: CAROL OF THE BAGPIPERS

When Christ our Lord was born in Bethlehem afar,
Although 'twas night,
There shone as bright as noon, a star.
Never so brightly, never so whitely,
Shone the stars,
As on that night!
The Brightest star went 
Away to call the Wise Men from the Orient.
