Il parmigiano lo zafferano la mozzarella e la cannella la pasta al pesto il pollo arrosto il baccalà Ma abbiam trovato la pioggia ed ora viene il bello avevamo dimenticato l’ombrello!! e siam scappati coi pacchi, la borsa, il cestino e con Mammà Siamo tornati a mangiare in città i panini, il gelato, le bistecche, il pesto, il baccalà!
