You who don't cry


Music: Ernesto De Curtis,

Lyrics: Libero Bovio.

Year: 1915

Comm'è bella 'a muntagna stanotte!
Bella accussì nun ll'aggio vista maje!
'N'anema pare rassignata e stanca,
Sott' 'a cuperta 'e chesta luna janca.

Tu ca nun chiagne e chiagnere mme faje,
Tu stanotte addò staje?
Voglio a tte!
Voglio a tte!
Chist'uocchie te vonno,
'N'ata vota, vedè.

Comm'è calma 'a muntagna stanotte!
Cchiù calma 'e mo nun ll'aggio vista maje!
E tutto dorme, tutto dorme o more
E i' sulo veglio, pecché veglia ammore.

Tu ca nun chiagne e chiagnere mme faje,
Tu stanotte addò staje?
Voglio a tte!
Voglio a tte!
Chist'uocchie te vonno,
'N'ata vota, vedè.

What beautiful the mountain is tonight!
Such beautiful I never saw it!
It looks like a meek and tired soul
Under the cover of this white moon.

You who don't cry and make me cry,
Where are you tonight?
I need you!
I need you!
My eyes want to see you
Once again.

What quiet the mountain is tonight!
Quieter than now I never saw it!
Everything sleeps, sleeps or dies down
Only I stay awake because love stays awake.

You who don't cry and make me cry,
Where are you tonight?
I need you!
I need you!
My eyes want to see you
Once again.
