Buttalo Via

Throw It Away


Daccelo a noi a te non serve


Give it to us – you don’t need it

Quel legname* daccelo a noi Give that wood to us.

Del legname ormai che te ne fai?


What will you do with that wood now?


Il suo legname non le serve più


You don’t need your wood anymore.


Non mi serve più, strulla! Strulli tutti


I don’t need it anymore? … You all…

Quel legname vale tanto oro quanto pesa That wood is worth its weight in gold.
Quel legname è denaro That wood is money.

Questa è solo carta straccia

All three:

This is just ripped paper

Presto te ne accorgerai You will soon realize.
Butta butta tanto che te ne fai Throw it, throw it [away] – what will you do with it?
Via via via buttalo via Away, away, away, throw it away.
Via via via fai pulizia Away, away, away, clean up.
Butta butta non ti serve più Throw it, throw it, you don’t need it anymore.
Straccia straccia non ti serve più Rip it up, rip it up, you don’t need it anymore.
Brucia brucia brucia fanne un falò Burn it, burn it, burn it, make it into a bonfire.

Non ci credo e questi nessuno me li prende!


I don’t believe it, and no one will take these from me.


Papà tu devi credergli


Daddy, you have to believe him

Silvestro è prete e quindi se ne intende! Silvestro is a priest so he knows about it!

No, no, no e poi no


No, no, and again no.

Quel legname è mio e non ve lo darò mai! That wood is mine and I’ll never give it to you.

Legname is wood in the sense of timber for building, while legno is raw wood to burn, or wood as an adjective.
