Hi all,
My aunt that just recently passed away used to bounce me on her knee while singing this song to me in Italian. I know the spelling is probably wayyy off, but I've never seen the words written I just remember them from her singing. If anyone can translate or knows the correct spelling I would greatly, greatly appreciate it.

Spelling the way that it sounds, the words are:

Baca dia
Su ma tah
Nay day Lana
Nay day stupa
Avidelavicchia

I'm sorry for the awful spelling attempt but again if anyone knows anything about this saying/song, I'd love to know. I wish now that I had asked my aunt before her passing

"nay day" could maybe be written "nei dei".
  Pronunciation of "nei": http://deit.contribute.dict.cc/?action=audio-history&f=id-427739
  Pronunciation of "dei": http://deit.contribute.dict.cc/?action=audio-history&f=id-420317
The last line could maybe be "avi della vecchia" (= "ancestors of the old woman").
  Pronunciation of "vecchia": http://deit.contribute.dict.cc/?action=audio-history&f=id-419062

Maybe you could write it in IPA (Wikipedia(EN): International_Phonetic_Alphabet), so I would maybe be able to recognize some other words. Maybe you could try Google voice search, too?
