Song Description

You could compare this to the blues--the lyrics are full of pain which is comforted by the music. Just a few notes will bring rushing back or evoke this WWII southern Italian era. But our arrangement isn't quaint or folky; it has a modern intensity. The arrangement is instantly catchy, danceable; the performance is top-notch.

Story Behind the Song

This was a popular folk song during WWII, about a conscripted soldier who needs to leave his love, probably never to return.

ITALIAN LYRICS FIRST; ENGLISH TRANSLATION BELOW. This was a popular folk song during WWII, about a conscripted soldier who needs to leave his love, probably never to return.
********************************************************************
Stamattina mi son alzato,
O bella, ciao, bella ciao, bella ciao ciao ciao!
Stamattina, mi son alzato,
Ed ho trovato l?invasor.

O partigiano, porta? mi via,
O bella, ciao, bella ciao, bella ciao ciao ciao!
Partigiano, porta? mi via, Che mi sento di morir.

E so? io muoio da partigiano,
O bella, ciao, bella ciao, bella ciao ciao ciao!
So? io muoio da partigiano, Tu me devi seppelir.

E seppelirai, lassu? in montagna,
O bella, ciao, bella ciao, bella ciao ciao ciao!
Seppelirai, lassu? in montagna, sotto l?ombra d?un bel fior.

E tutti quelli che passerano
O bella, ciao, bella ciao, bella ciao ciao ciao!
Tutti quelli che passerano mi dirano che bel fior!

ENGLISH TRANSLATION
This morning, I got up (o beautiful one, bye, bye bye!!!) and found the invader.

O comrade, take me away, (o beautiful one, bye, bye bye!!!) because I feel like I?m going to die.

And so I die, as a comrade, (o beautiful one, bye, bye bye!!!); you must bury me.

And bury me up in the mountains (o beautiful one, bye, bye bye!!!), under the shadow of a beautiful flower.

All those who pass by (o beautiful one, bye, bye bye!!!) will tell me how lovely the flower is.
