Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

Una volta c'era un re,
Che a star solo,
Che a star solo s'annoiò;
Cerca, cerca, ritrovò :
Ma il volean sposare in tre,
cosa ta?
Sprezzò il fastom e la beltà ,
E all fin sceglie per sè
L'innocenza, e la bontà 
Là  là  là  là ...

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
Là  là  là  là ...
