Ho messo nuove corde al mandolino

Language: Italian

Ho messo nuove corde al mandolino
Perché le voglio far le serenate,
E gliene voglio far sera e mattino
E verno e state.

E farò sì che per le mie canzone
Vada costei famosa e disiata,
Come la bella Donna d'Avignone
Un tempo è stata.

E si dirà. "Qual è cotesta stella
Ond'il mondo ragiona? Oh come ha'l viso?"
Ed io: "Non se ne trova una sì bella
In Paradiso."

Gentle Reminder
This is a personal project that I began in 1995. I receive no salary for my full-time work on it, and aside from ad revenue and copyright fees, it is supported financially by fewer than 0.02% of our visitors. So if you found the information here useful, please consider making a donation. Your gift is greatly appreciated.
