Lyrics to "Amara Me" by Nino Rota from the movie Love and Anarchy
Hello, I've been looking all over the internet and can't find the italian lyrics to this song. Could someone please write them out? And maybe if possible tell me the gist of the song, I don't know Italian . Thank you so much!
Here is a youtube videa from the movie where the song is, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tkV1W_4-bjc

Hi. This song is in truth a traditional song from southern county of Italy Abruzzo, so the lyrics is not just in Italian but in dialect from Abruzzo.
It's the complaining of a widowed woman who is disperate for herself and her baby. I write you the lyrics and then the translation:
TITLE: Marč maje
Marč maje e scure maje
tu si muorte e jč che facce
mo me sciatt 'e trecce 'n facce
mo m'accite 'n goll 'a taie
E mare mą, mare mą, mare maje
e scure mą, scure mą, scure maje
mo m'accite, mo m'accite, mo m'accite
'n goll 'a taje
So' na pechera spirgiute
lu mundune m'ha lassate
lu guaggiuone sembr' abbaje
pe la fame mo s'arraje.
E marč mą...
Je a tinč na casarielle
mo so sule e abbandunate
senza casa e senza lette
senza pane e companaje
Poor me, me disperate, you have died and now what shall I do? Now I undo my plaits all over my face, now I kill myself over you. I'm a condemned sheep, the ram has left me alone, the cub is always crying and it will end up to get angry for its hunger. Poor me, me desperate (ecc...). I had a small house, now I'm lonely and abandoned, without a house nor a bed, without bread nor companage.
