There is one person, famous in Venice,
for his sympathy and big heart.
Everywhere he spreads good mood.
On the whole earth one remembers him.
They return to his territory, people of every rank
look for his company, spending evenings in pleasure.
Senators, directors of orchestras, conductors, captains,
the simple and the poor.
What he has, he gives, with all his love.
His boat, his passion, he always stands by.
He lets us admire, the beauty of the lagoon,
during the day and in the moonlight.
For all he understands to give,
we always have to be thankful.
