Folk Music in Italian

O Sole Mio

Che bella cosa na jurnata 'e sole,
n'aria serena doppo na tempesta!
Pe' ll'aria fresca pare gia` na festa,
che bella cosa na jurnata 'e sole.

Ma n'atu sole
cchiu` bello, oje ne',
'o sole mio,
sta 'nfronte a te!
O sole,
'o sole mio,
sta 'nfronte a te,
sta 'nfronte a te!

Quanno fa notte e 'o sole se ne scenne,
me vene quase 'na malincunia.
Sotto 'a fenesta toia restarria,
quanno fa notte e 'o sole se ne scenne.

Ma n'atu sole
cchiu` bello, oje ne',
'o sole mio,
sta 'nfronte a te!
O sole,
'o sole mio,
sta 'nfronte a te,
sta 'nfronte a te!

Giovanni Capurro

O Sole Mio

What a wonderful thing a sunny day
The serene air after a thunderstorm
The fresh air, and a party is already going
on…What a wonderful thing a sunny day.

But another sun,
that's brighter still
It's my own sun
that's in your face!
The sun,
my own sun
It's in your face!
It's in your face!

When night comes and the sun has gone down,
I start feeling blue;
I'd stay below your window
When night comes and the sun has gone down.

But another sun,
that's brighter still
It's my own sun
that's in your face!
The sun,
my own sun
It's in your face!
It's in your face!

Giovanni Capurro
