Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

Una volta c'era un re,
Che a star solo,
Che a star solo s'annoiņ;
Cerca, cerca, ritrovņ :
Ma il volean sposare in tre,
cosa ta?
Sprezzņ il fastom e la beltą ,
E all fin sceglie per sč
L'innocenza, e la bontą 
Lą  lą  lą  lą ...

English Libretto or Translation:

Once upon a time there was a king
Who was alone,
Who was bored of being alone:
So he searched and searched and found
But all three wanted to marry him,
so what does he do?
He scorns pomp and beauty,
And in the end, he chose for himself
Innocence and virtue
Lą  lą  lą  lą ...
