Here are the full lyrics of the “Resistenza” hymn “Bella Ciao”:

“Una mattina mi son svegliato,

o bella ciao, bella ciao, bella ciao ciao ciao!

Una mattina mi son svegliato

e ho trovato l'invasor.

O partigiano portami via,

o bella ciao, bella ciao, bella ciao ciao ciao

o partigiano portami via

che mi sento di morir.

E se io muoio da partigiano,

o bella ciao, bella ciao, bella ciao ciao ciao,

e se io muoio da partigiano

tu mi devi seppellir.

Seppellire lassù in montagna,

o bella ciao, bella ciao, bella ciao ciao ciao,

seppellire lassù in montagna

sotto l'ombra di un bel fior.

E le genti che passeranno,

o bella ciao, bella ciao, bella ciao ciao ciao,

e le genti che passeranno

mi diranno «che bel fior.»

Questo è il fiore del partigiano,

o bella ciao, bella ciao, bella ciao ciao ciao,

questo è il fiore del partigiano

morto per la libertà!”
