    Un coccodrillo vero,/ a real crocodile
    un vero alligatore/ a real alligator
    ti ho detto che l'avevo/ i told you i have it
    e l'avrei dato e te./ and i would have given it to you
    Ma i patti erano chiari:/ but we made a clear agreement
    il coccodrillo a te/ the crocodile for you
    e tu dovevi dare/ and you were supposed to give me
    un gatto nero a me./ a black cat

    Volevo un gatto nero, nero, nero,/ it was a black black cat that i wanted
    mi hai dato un gatto bianco/ you gave a white cat
    ed io non ci sto più./ and i won't accept this
    Volevo un gatto nero, nero, nero,/ it was a black black cat that i wanted
    siccome sei un bugiardo/ since you're a liar
    con te non gioco più./ i won't play with you anymore

    Non era una giraffa/ it wasn't a
    di plastica o di stoffa:/ plastic or stuffed giraffe
    ma una in carne ed ossa/ but one made of flesh and bones
    e l'avrei data e te./ and i would have given it to you
    Ma i patti erano chiari:// we had a clear agreement
    una giraffa a te/ a giraffe for you
    e tu dovevi dare/ and you were supposed to give me
    un gatto nero a me./ a black cat

    Volevo un gatto nero, nero, nero,/it was a black black cat that i wanted
    mi hai dato un gatto bianco/ you gave a white cat
    ed io non ci sto più./ and i won't accept this
    Volevo un gatto nero, nero, nero,/it was a black black cat that i wanted
    siccome sei un bugiardo/ since you're a liar
    con te non gioco più./ i won't play with you anymore

    Un elefante indiano / an indian elephant
    con tutto il baldacchino:/ with its canopy
    l'avevo nel giardino / i had it in my garden
    e l'avrei dato e te./ and I'd have given it to you
    Ma i patti erano chiari:/ we had a clear agreement
    un elefante a te/ an elephant for you
    e tu dovevi dare/ and you were supposed to give me
    un gatto nero a me./ a black cat

    Volevo un gatto nero, nero, nero,/ it was a black black cat that i wanted
    mi hai dato un gatto bianco/ you gave a white cat
    ed io non ci sto più./ and i won't accept this
    Volevo un gatto nero, nero, nero,/ it was a black black cat that i wanted
    siccome sei un bugiardo/ since you're a liar
    con te non gioco più./ i won't play with you anymore

    I patti erano chiari:/ we had an agreement
    l'intero zoo per te/ the whole zoo for you
    e tu dovevi dare/ and you were supposed to give me
    un gatto nero a me./ a black cat

    Volevo un gatto nero, nero, nero,/it was a black black cat that i wanted
    invece è un gatto bianco / instead it's a white cat
    quello che hai dato a me./ that you gave me
    Volevo un gatto nero, / it was a black cat that i wanted
    ma insomma nero o bianco/ but after all black or white
    il gatto me lo tengo/i'm gonna keep it and
    e non do niente a te./ i won't give you anything
