GIRLS.
  Come all the maidens in merry community
    Gay and jocose,
      Hither we wend.
  Risotto, Minestra, are knitted in unity
    Nobody knows
      How it will end.
  Risotto is handsome and really delectable —
    Stalwart and tall;
      Second to none.
  Minestra, nice-looking and very respectable.
    So we are all —
      Every one.
    So we are all —
      Every one.
ALL.
    So we are all —
      Every one.
