Fedele Lyr Req: The Death of the Bear (15) RE: Lyr Req: The Death of the Bear 25 Mar 00

Thank you everyone. The song is really about a bear, it is a metaphore for the Soviet Union: the only thing I understand is that it is about a girl in the last years of the Soviet Union remembering her past, her friends, some of them caught by the KGB, shot in Afghanistan, put into a madhouse... but also when she was proud as Yuri Gagarin sailed over the clouds. I think it's someway a "trotzkist" song. Speaking about "Osteria numero uno, paraponzi ponzi po" it's only a series of very vulgar sentences that rhyme with a number, i.e, Osteria numero mille la mi' fava fa scintille (Pub n° one thousand my dick is shooting sparks), everyone sings his own way, it's sung by drunk people but it's not very common in my region (Tuscany). Thank you if you provide me the lyrics for that Bear. I did not expect to receive so many answers so soon. Bye - if anyone is interested in Italian songs, mostly political ranging from the second half of the 19th century to the Seventies of the 20th, I'm still here. You can also mail me directly to Folk Forever!
