Klein and Wagner

In the last house along the street a girl’s voice rang out; the sweetness of it tugged at his heart. To his delight he was able to understand many of the words, and he noted the refrain:

Mamma non vuole, papa ne meno,
Come faremo a fare l’amor?

“Klein and Wagner,” Klingsor’s Last Summer, Hermann Hesse
