Don't worry: it's coming, it's coming for all the good girls and boys! And not.

Let's read together:

They told me, dear Befana,
that you fill the stocking with wool,
that all the children, if they are good,
from you they receive rich gifts.

you come right on time,
but I'm scared, poor fellow,
that you travel by direct train:

where there are good children.

to make you take the accelerated!

O dear Befana, take a little train
that you stop at every child's house,
that stop at the houses of the poor
with many gifts and many sugared almonds.
