Ma se ghe pensu: GCFC Songs


Genoa

Canzone tradizionale di emigranti liguri

Lyrics

Ma se ghe penso alloa mi veddo o mâ, Veddo i mæ monti e a ciassa da Nonsiâ, Riveddo o Righi e me s'astrenze o chêu, Veddo a lanterna, a cava, lazzû o mêu, Riveddo a séia Zena illûminâ, Veddo là a Foxe e sento franze o mâ, E alloa mi penso ancon de ritornâ, A pösâ e osse dov'ò mæ madonnâ...

Traditional song of Ligurian emigrants

Lyrics

But if I think about it, I can see the sea, I see my mountains, and Nunziata Square, I see the Righi and I'm shaking my heart, I see the Lanterna, the Cava, and there the pier... I see Genoa illuminated in the night, There I see Foce and I hear the sea breaking And so again I think of coming back To rest my bones where my grandma rests...
