Year: 1963

Tramonta 'a luna
E nuje, pe' recità ll'urdema scena,
Restammo mmane e mmane,
Senza tenè 'o curaggio 'e ce guardà.

Famme chello che vuò
Indifferentemente.
Tanto 'o ssaccio che sò:
Pe' tte nun sò cchiù niente!
E damme 'stu veleno,
Nun aspettà dimane,
Ca, indifferentemente,
Si tu m'accide nun te dico niente.

E ride pure,
Mentre me scippe 'a pietto chistu core.
Nun sento cchiù dulore
E nun tengo cchiù llacreme pe' tte.

Famme chello che vuò
Indifferentemente.
Tanto 'o ssaccio che sò:
Pe' tte nun sò cchiù niente!
E damme 'stu veleno,
Nun aspettà dimane,
Ca, indifferentemente,
Si tu m'accide nun te dico niente.

E indifferentemente
Io perdo a tte!

The moon rises
And, to play the last scene,
We still hold each other's hands
Without daring to look at each other.

Do what you want with me,
Indifferently.
I know who I am:
Now I'm nothing to you!
Well, give me this poison,
Don't wait for tomorrow,
Because, if indifferently
You kill me, I tell you nothing.

But you laugh
While you rip my heart out.
I feel no pain anymore
And I have no tears for you anymore.

Do what you want with me,
Indifferently.
I know who I am:
Now I'm nothing to you!
Well, give me this poison,
Don't wait for tomorrow,
Because, if indifferently
You kill me, I tell you nothing.

And, indifferently,
I'm losing you!
