I have asked the people in our Italian office (based in Milan) and they do not know this song. They will look into this and let me know if they find anything.

Do you have any other information on it.

I don't know the Italian, but here's how it appeared in Singing Together, 1977:

PEPPINETTA

Merry and sweet is Peppinetta,
Carolling all the long day through
(La la lie-ra, la, la, la,
lie-ra la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la,
La la lie-ra la la la, lie-ra la la la la la la
La la la la.}
Down by the shore at sun-down I met her,
Washing her nets as fisher-girls so,
Down by the shore at sun-down I met her
Washing her nets, as fisher-girls do
(La La etc)

All the day long for coral toiling,
Poor in her home beside the sea
(La la, etc)
Yet ne'er a frown her sweet face is spoiling,
Fair as a flow'r, contented is she,
Yet ne'er a frown her sweet face is spoiling
Fair as a flow'r , contented is she

===

I may have m,iscounted the 'la's!

The following book has musical notation for piano and one or two voices, with lyrics in Italian and English. The English is different from the words posted above.

Songs of Italy: Sixty-Five Tuscan, Florentine, Lombardian and Other Italian Folk and Popular Songs collected and edited by Eduardo Marzo, English translations by Dr. Theo. Baker (New York: G. Schirmer, 1904), page 12.

Thank you for this wonderful memory from my early secondary school school days in the sixties. We sang "Peppinetta" from those purple printed sheets that had such a magic (possibly toxic) smell!

The world was such a different place then. My main concern was whether my hair "flicked up" successfully.

Those were the days. Thanks for the memory.

Thanks, Jim. When it comes to locating sheet music, you're a wonder. I'm thinking of adding this song to my Italian collection.
