    Such nostalgia! :) Whenever my mom would get depressed about something, or say what will we do if...he'd say: "


    I hope you don't mind. This is so others can enjoy it more, and why it really could be one of our anthems. :)
    E' una canzone senza titolo

    It's a song without a title




    tanto 'pe cantà, 'pe fà qualche cosa

    Just for singing, to do something




    nun è "gnente de straordinario

    It's nothing special













    è roba del paese nostro

    It's from our country




    che se po' cantà pure senza voce

    You can sing it even without a voice




    basta 'a salute

    Health is all you need




    quanno c'è 'a salute c'è tutto

    when there's health there's everthing




    basta 'a salute e un par de scarpe nove

    you only need health and a new pair of shoes




    poi girà tutto 'er monno

    And you can travel all around the world




    e m'accompagno da me!

    I travel alone!











    'Pe fà la vita meno amara

    In order to live a life less bitter




    me sò comprato 'sta chitara

    I have bought this guitar




    e quanno er sole scenne e more

    And when the sun goes down and dies




    me sento 'n'core cantatore

    My heart starts to sing




    la voce è poca ma intonata

    Voice is lacking but it is tune




    nun serve a fà 'na serenata

    Not meant to sing a serenade




    ma solamente 'a fà in maniera

    But just so that I can




    de farme 'nsogno a primma sera.

    Dream in the early evening











    Tanto 'pe cantà

    Just for singing




    pecchè me sento 'n' friccico ner core

    because I feel a thrill in my heart




    tanto 'pe sognà

    Just for dreaming




    perché ner petto me ce naschi un' fiore

    So that in my heart a flower will grow




    fiore de lillà

    flower of lilliac




    che m'ariporti verso er primo amore

    That would bring me back to my first love

    che sospirava alle canzone mie

    Who sighed when she listened to my songs




    e m'arintontoniva de buscie.

    And killed me with lies











    Canzoni belle e appassionate

    Beautiful and passioned songs




    che Roma mia m'aricordate

    Which my Rome has reminded me of




    cantate solo 'pe dispetto

    Sang only as a joke




    ma 'cò 'na smania dentro ar petto

    But with quite a boldness in the heart




    io nun ve canto a voce piena

    I don't sing to you with all my voice




    ma tutta l'anima è serena

    but all of my soul is content




    e quanno er cielo se scolora

    and when the sky becomes grey




    de me nessuna se 'nn'amora.

    Nobody falls in love with me











    Tanto 'pe cantà

    Just for singing




    pecchè me sento 'n' friccico ner core

    because I feel a thrill in my heart




    tanto 'pe sognà

    Just for dreaming




    perché ner petto me ce naschi un' fiore

    So that in my heart a flower will grow




    fiore de lillà

    flower of lilliac




    che m'ariporti verso er primo amore

    That would bring me back to my first love




    che sospirava alle canzoni mie

    Who sighed when she listened to my songs




    e m'arintontoniva de bucie.

    And killed me with lies





















    Non si fa il proprio dovere perchè qualcuno ci dica grazie, lo si fa per principio, per se stessi, per la propria dignità. Oriana Fallaci

    I've had Fabrizio de Andre, the poet laureate and troubadour of Liguria, on all day.

    Salento says I always play sad songs. :) Well, most of De Andre's songs are sad songs, including this one to a certain extent, but at least this one has a happy tune. Wait for the little guy to burst forth toward the end. :)

    Va Pensiero
    ... Oh, mia Patria sì bella e perduta!

    ‘cause Al Bano è paesano mio.



    Va, pensiero sull'ali dorate
    Va, ti posa sui clivi, sui colli,
    Ove olezzano trepide e molli
    L'aure dolci del suolo natal!
    Del Giordano le rive saluta,
    Di Sionne le torri atterrate...
    Oh, mia patria sì bella e perduta!
    Oh, membranza sì cara e fatal!
    Arpa d'or dei fatidici vati
    Perchà© muta dal salice pendi?
    Le memorie nel petto raccendi,
    Ci favella del tempo che fu!
    O simile di Solima ai fati
    Traggi un suono di crudo lamento,
    O t'ispiri il Signore un concento
    Che ne infonda al patire virtù!
    Che ne infonda al patire
    Al patire virtù,
    Che ne infonda al patire
    Al patire virtù!
    Al patire virtù!
