The Neapolitan Song Song 2 - Funiculí funiculà

Complete Lyrics

English

This evening I went up somewhere, Nannine, do you know where? do you know where? Where your ungrateful heart can't hurt me, it really can't, it really can't! Where the fire burns but it you run, it lets you be, it lets you be. It does not chase, it does not destroy you Just with its presence, just with its presence. Let's go, let's go, let's go up to the top. Let's go, let's go, let's go up to the top. Funiculi funicula funiculi funicula. Let's go, let's go, funiculi funicula.

Italian

Aisséra, Nanninè, mme ne sagliette, tu saje addó, tu saje addó. Addó, 'sto core 'ngrato, cchiù dispiette farme nun pò, farme nun pò! Addó lo ffuoco coce, ma si fuje, te lassa stà, te lassa stà. E nun te corre appriesso e nun te struje sulo a guardà, sulo a guardà. Jammo, jammo, 'ncoppa jammo ja`. Jammo, jammo, 'ncoppa jammo ja'. Funiculi - funiculà, funiculi - funiculà. 'Ncoppa jammo ja', funiculi - funiculà.

Come on let's go: from the plain up the mountain Without walking! Without walking! One can see France, the island of Procida, and Spain. But it's you I see, it's you I see. Come on pull the ropes, no sooner said than done, We'll go up to the sky, up to the sky One goes like the wind, all of a sudden, it goes right up, it goes right up! Let's go, let's go, let's go up to the top, Let's go, let's go, let's go up to the top, Funiculi funicula funiculi funicula, Let's go, let's go, funiculi funicula,

Nèh jammo: da la terra a la montagna, no passo nc'è. No passo nc'è. Se vede Francia, Pròceta, la Spagna. e io veco a te! E io veco a te. Tirtite co li ffune, ditto 'affitto, 'ncielo se va, 'ncielo se va. Se va comin'a lo vicino e, a Wintrasatto, gué saghe sà, gué saglie Jammo, jammo, 'ncoppa jammoja'. Jammo, jammo, 'ncoppa jammo jar. Funículí - funículà, funículí - funículà. 'Ncoppa jammoja', funiculí - funiculà.

It's spinning around and around, My head already, my head already, It has gone, then returned, then come back again, but it is still here! but it is still here! My head turns around and around, around you! around you! My heart always sings one of these days: we'11 get married, we'll get married, Let's go, let's go, let's go up to the top, Let's go, let's go, let's go up to the top, Funiculi funicula funiculi funicula, Let's go, let's go, funiculi funicula.

Se n'è sagliuta, oje né, se n'è sagliuta, la capa gié, la capa gié. E' ghiuta, po' è tornata, po' è venuta. Sta sempe ccà. Sta sempe ccé. La capa vota vota attuorno, attuorno, attuorno a te, attuorno a te. Lo core canta sempe no taluorno: Sposammo, oje né. Sposammo, oje né. Jarnmo, _Mulino, 'ncoppa jammojar. Jazruno, jainmo, 'ncoppa ja turno ja'. Funictzlí - fiznicuM, fimictzlí - fiznicuM. 'Ncoppa jammoja', fizniculí - fizniculé.
