Funiculì funiculà

Funiculi funicula Funiculì funiculà is a beautiful Neapolitan song which was composed by the journalist Peppino Turco (7 march 1846 - 14 October 1903) and by the musician Luigi Denza (24 February 1846 - 27 January 1922) in 1880.

Funiculì funiculà was composed to commemorate the inauguration of the first funicular of “Mt.Vesuvius” which is a stratovolcano on the Bay of Naples. Funiculì funiculà was first sung in the “Quisisana Hotel”. This beautiful song was sung by many famous singers such as Luciano Pavarotti, Andrea Bocelli and Andre Rieu.

Funiculì funiculà

Aissera, Nanninč, me ne sagliette, tu saje addo'? (Tu saje addo'?)
Addo' 'stu core 'ngrato cchiu' dispietto, farme nun po'! (Farme nun po'!)
Addo' lo fuoco coce, ma si fuie, te lassa sta! (Te lassa sta!)
E nun te corre appriesso, nun te struie, sulo a guarda'! (Sulo a guarda'!)

Jammo, jammo, 'ncoppa jammo ja',
jammo, jammo, 'ncoppa jammo ja'.
Funiculí - funiculá, funiculí - funiculá,
'ncoppa jammo ja', funiculí - funiculá.

Nčh jammo: da la terra a la montagna,
no passo nc'č... No passo nc'č...

Se vede Francia, Prňceta, la Spagna...
e io veco a te! E io veco a te...

Tiráte co li ffune, ditto 'nfatto,
'ncielo se va...'Ncielo se va...

Se va comm'a lo viento e, a ll'intrasatto,
gué saglie sá'... Gué saglie sá'...

Jammo, jammo,'ncoppa jammo ja'...
Jammo, jammo,'ncoppa jammo ja'...
Funiculí - funiculá,funiculí - funiculá...
'Ncoppa jammo ja',funiculí - funiculá....

Se n' 'e' sagliuta, oi' ne', se n' 'e' sagliuta, la capa giŕ! (La capa giŕ!)
E' gghiuta, po' e' turnata, po' e' venuta, sta sempe cca'!(Sta sempe cca'!)
La capa vota, vota, attuorno, attuorno, attuorno a te! (Attuorno a te!)
Sto core canta sempe nu taluorno,sposammo,oi' ne'!(Sposammo,oi' ne'!)

Jammo, jammo, 'ncoppa jammo ja',
jammo, jammo, 'ncoppa jammo ja'.
Funiculí - funiculá, funiculí - funiculá,
'ncoppa jammo ja', funiculí – funiculá

Funiculě funiculŕ

Yesterday evening, O Nannina (short for Carolina), I climbed up,
Do you know where?
To where an ungrateful heart can no longer vex me!
Where a fire is burning, but if you flee
It lets you be.
It doesn't chase you, doesn't melt you, with just one glance!

Let's go, let's go, let's go to the top,
Let's go, let's go, let's go to the top,
Funiculì, funiculà, Funiculì, funiculà!
Let's go to the top, Funiculì, funiculà!

Let's go from here below up to the mountain, O Nannina, a step away!

You can see France, Procida, and Spain,
And I see you!

You rise, pulled by a cable, quick as a wink
into the sky.

We'll rise up like a whirlwind all of a sudden knows how to do!

Let's go, let's go, let's go to the top,
Let's go, let's go, let's go to the top,
Funiculì, funiculà, funiculì, funiculà!
Let's go to the top, Funiculì, funiculà!

My head is spinning, O Nannina, It's gone up there already!
It went there, spun 'round, and then returned
It's always here!
My head is spinning, spinning,
Encircling you!
This heart of mine is always singing
the same refrain "Marry me, O Nannina"!

Let's go, let's go, let's go to the top,
Let's go, let's go, let's go to the top,
Funiculì, funiculà, funiculì, funiculà!
Let's go to the top, Funiculì, funiculà!
