Year: 1957

Erano verde…
Erano verde 'e ffronne.
E mò sò comm' 'e suonne perdute…
E mò songh' 'e ricorde 'ngiallute…
Dint'a chest'aria 'e llacreme
'E stò guardanno.
C' 'o viento se ne vanno
Pe' nun turnà maje cchiù.

Malinconico autunno,
Staje facenno cadè
Tutt' 'e ffronne d' 'o munno
Sulamente pe' mme…
Chi mm'ha lassato pe' nun turnà,
Chi sà a che penza…
Chi sà che fa…
Ammore mio,
Nun sò stat'io…
Sì stata tu!…
Pecché?… Pecché?…
Malinconico autunno,
Staje chiagnenno cu mme.
Tutt' 'e ffronne d' 'o munno
Staje facenno cadè.

Dint'a 'sta villa
Ll'aspetto fin'â sera,
Vicino a 'sta ringhiera, penzanno
A 'e ccose ca diceva giuranno…
Mme pare ancora 'e sentere:
"Sì 'a vita mia!
'Sta vita che sarria
S'io nun tenesse a tte?"

Malinconico autunno,
Staje facenno cadè
Tutt' 'e ffronne d' 'o munno
Sulamente pe' mme…
Chi mm'ha lassato pe' nun turnà,
Chi sà a che penza…
Chi sà che fa…
Ammore mio,
Nun sò stat'io…
Sì stata tu!…
Pecché?… Pecché?…
Malinconico autunno,
Staje chiagnenno cu mme.
Tutt' 'e ffronne d' 'o munno
Staje facenno cadè.

Malinconico autunno,
A chest'ora addò sta?
Malinconico autunno,
I' ll'aspetto, stò ccà.

They were green…
These leaves were green.
And now they are like lost dreams…
And now they are yellowed memories…
With sadness
I look at them.
They go away with the wind
And never come back anymore.

Melancholic autumn,
You make fall down
All the leaves in the world
Only for me…
She who has left me forever,
Who knows what she thinks about?…
Who knows what she does?…
My love,
It was not my fault…
The fault was yours!…
Why?… Why?…
Melancholic autumn,
You cry with me.
You make fall down
All the leaves in the world.

In this villa
I wait for her until the evening,
Leaning on the railing, I think
About oaths that she made to me…
It seems I still hear her words:
"You are my life!
What would be my life
If you were not with me?"

Melancholic autumn,
You make fall down
All the leaves in the world
Only for me…
She who has left me forever,
Who knows what she thinks about?…
Who knows what she does?…
My love,
It was not my fault…
The fault was yours!…
Why?… Why?…
Melancholic autumn,
You cry with me.
You make fall down
All the leaves in the world.

Melancholic autumn,
In this hour where is she?
Melancholic autumn,
I wait for her, I'm here.
