I'm here again playing, dirty and all by ear, some classic neapolitan songs.

Tonight song is Cu'mme (With Me) :


below, an excerpt from Wikipedia translated by google translator:

The song "Cu 'mme" (With Me) was first published in 1992 in the interpretation of Roberto Murolo and Mia Martini, within the album Ottantavoglia di cantare on the occasion of the celebrations of Maestro Murolo's eightieth birthday. Following the success of "Cu 'mme", in 1993 the trio Murolo - Martini - Gragnaniello recorded the LP "L'italia è bbella" (Italy is beautiful), taking the title of the song with which Murolo participated that same year at the Sanremo Festival.

Lyrics in Neapolitan language:


Scinne cu 'mme
nfonno o mare a truva'
chillo ca nun tenimmo acca'
vieni cu mme
e accumincia a capi'
comme e' inutile sta' a suffri'
guarda stu mare
ca ci infonne e paure
sta cercanne e ce mbara'
ah comme se fa'

a da' turmiento all'anema
ca vo' vula'
si tu nun scinne a ffonne
nun o puo' sape'
no comme se fa'
adda piglia' sultanto
o mare ca ce sta'
eppoi lassa' stu core
sulo in miezz a via
saglie cu 'mme
e accumincia a canta'
insieme e note che l'aria da'
senza guarda'
tu continua a vula'
mientre o viento
ce porta la'
addo ce stanno
e parole chiu' belle
che te pigliano pe mbara'
ah comme se fa'
a da' turmiento all'anema
ca vo' vula'
si tu nun scinne a ffonne
nun o puo' sape'
no comme se fa'
adda piglia' sultanto
o mare ca ce sta'
eppoi lassa' stu core
sulo in miezz a via
ah comme se fa'
a da' turmiento all'anema
ca vo' vula'
si tu nun scinne a ffonne
nun o puo' sape'
no comme se fa'
adda piglia' sultanto
o mare ca ce sta'
eppoi lassa' stu core
sulo in miezz a via


and English translation

Come down with me
at the bottom of the sea to find
what we don't have here.

come with me
and begin to understand
how useless it is to suffer.

Look at this sea
that causes us fear
is trying to teach us ...

Ah how do
to torment the soul that wants to fly?
If you don't go down to the bottom
you can't know!

No, how do you do it
having to take only
the evil there is
and then leave this heart
only in the middle of the street?

Come with me
and start singing
together with the notes that the air gives.

Without looking
you keep flying
while the wind
takes us there.

Where there are
the most beautiful words
I take you to learn ...

Ah how do
to torment the soul that wants to fly?
If you don't go down to the bottom
you can't know!

No, how do you do it
having to take only
the evil there is
and then leave this heart
only in the middle of the street?


Ciao and keep you safe
