Year: 1960

Tutt' 'e strade se 'ncontrano,
Se 'ntrecciano,
Se parlano
Comm' ê penziere, comm' ê speranze
D' 'e 'nnammurate.
E si chesta fantasia
Nun è proprio 'na buscia,
Pe' stasera tutt' 'e dduje
Core e core stammo già:
Songh' 'e strade ca ce portano
A 'sta felicità.

Turnammoce a 'ncuntrà,
Ca è bello a ce 'ncuntrà
Cu 'stu felillo 'e luna.
Tu pure vuò accussì,
Dall'aria 'o sento 'e dì
Ca ce vulimmo bbene.
Ammore,
'A strada 'e ll'ammore
T'aspetta cu mme:
'Sta carreca 'e sciure
C'addorano 'e te.
'O core mio te vò,
'O core tujo me vò:
Nuje simmo 'na canzona.
Turnammoce a 'ncuntrà,
Ca è bello a ce 'ncuntrà
Cu 'stu felillo 'e luna.

Chella sera d' 'e nnuvole
D' 'e cchiacchiere,
D' 'e llacreme,
Quanta penziere e che turtura
P' 'a gelusia.
Ll'ombra toja s'alluntanava
Ma 'na lacrema parlava
Dint' ô scuro e me diceva:
"Chella more senza 'e te!"
Quanta strade e quanta palpite
Speranno 'e te vedè.

Turnammoce a 'ncuntrà,
Ca è bello a ce 'ncuntrà
Cu 'stu felillo 'e luna.
Tu pure vuò accussì,
Dall'aria 'o sento 'e dì
Ca ce vulimmo bbene.
Ammore,
'A strada 'e ll'ammore
T'aspetta cu mme:
'Sta carreca 'e sciure
C'addorano 'e te.
'O core mio te vò,
'O core tujo me vò:
Nuje simmo 'na canzona.
Turnammoce a 'ncuntrà,
Ca è bello a ce 'ncuntrà
Cu 'stu felillo 'e luna.

All roads converge,
They intertwine one another,
They talk to each other
Like thoughts, like hopes
Of lovers.
And if this fantasy
Isn't exactly a lie,
This evening we both
Will hold each other tightly:
These roads lead us
To the happiness.

Let's meet again,
'Cause it's so nice to meet each other
In the light of the crescent moon.
You want it too,
I feel it coming in the air
Because we love each other.
My love,
This road of love
Waits for you with me:
These flowers
That carry your smell.
My heart wants you,
Your heart wants me:
We are like a song.
Let's meet again,
'Cause it's so nice to meet each other
In the light of the crescent moon.

That cloudy evening
Of idle talks,
Of tears,
How many thoughts and torments
Of jealousy.
Your shadow was moving away from me
But a tear showed your true feelings
In the darkness and told me:
"She'll die without you!"
How many roads and how many emotions,
Hoping to see you.

Let's meet again,
'Cause it's so nice to meet each other
In the light of the crescent moon.
You want it too,
I feel it coming in the air
Because we love each other.
My love,
This road of love
Waits for you with me:
These flowers
That carry your smell.
My heart wants you,
Your heart wants me:
We are like a song.
Let's meet again,
'Cause it's so nice to meet each other
In the light of the crescent moon.
