From: campfire
Date: 14 May 99 - 10:47 PM

Hello, whomever!

FUNICULI FUNICULA

Some think the world is made for fun and frolic
And so do I! And so do I!
Some think it well to be all melancholic
To pine and sigh, to pine and sigh
But I, I love to spend my time in singing
Some joyous song, some joyous song
To set the air with music bravely ringing
Is far from wrong, is far from wrong.

Chorus:
Harken! Harken! Music sounds afar!
Harken! Harken! Music sounds afar!
Tralalala Tralalala
Tralalala Tralalala
Joy is everywhere Funiculi Funicula!

Ah me! 'Tis strange thatsome should take to sighing
And like it well, and like it well
For me, I have not thought it worth the trying
So cannot tell, so cannot tell
With laugh and dance and song the day soon passes
Full soon is gone, full soon is gone
For mirth was made for joyous lads and lasses
To call their own, to call their own

These are from the Rise Up Singing book

Last night
I stayed up late
And masterbated

It felt so good
I knew it would

Last night
I stayed up late
And masterbated

It felt so nice
I did it twice

You should have seen me on the long strokes
It felt so neat
I used my feet I used my hand

Wrap it round the bed-post
Shoot it out the door

No doubt these are the REAL family lyrics she is looking for....and no doubt some Mudcatter can remember the rest and put them into the correct sequence.

It is in the database. I searched for [fun and frolic] in the big blue search box in the upper right to avoid the how to spell funiculi problem.

Warping back to early adolescent memories; this one is a little more difficult to recall:

However, once again, with a refreshed memory.

Last night I stayed up late and masturbated
It felt so good
I knew it would
Last night I stayed up late and masturbated
It felt so nice
I did it twice
You should have seen me on the long strokes
It felt so neat
I used my feet
You should have seen me on the long strokes
It felt so grand
I used my hand
Splash it, dash it, down across the floor
Wrap it round the bedpost, shoot it out the door
It felt so good
I knew it would
It felt so nice
I did it twice
Some people like to fornicate
But I would rather masturbate

OR

Some people like to fuck a chick
But I would rather beat my prick

From: Jon W.
Date: 17 May 99 - 11:19 AM

Getting back to reality, I believe I posted these Italian words a year or two ago but the forum search failed so I'll post them again:

FUNICULI FUNICULA

Stasera, nina mia, viam sul' monte
Un passo c'e. Un passo c'e.
Si vede Francia, Portceddu, la Spagna,
Io veggo a te. Io veggo a te.
La testa gira gira intorno intorno
Intorno a te. Intorno a te.
E il cuore canta come il primo giorno.
Ti sposa a me. Ti sposa a me.

Chorus:
Lesti, lesti via'l monton' su la
Lesti, lesti via'l monton' su la
Funiculi, funicula funiculi funicula
Via'l monton su la, funiculi funicula.

English translation:
This evening, little girl, we climb the mountain
The view to see. The view to see.
One looks on France and Portugal and Spain,
It's you I see, it's you I see.
The head is dizzy whirling 'round and 'round
With thoughts of thee, with thoughts of thee.
And the heart, it sings with Eden's sound
You'll marry me. You'll marry me.

Joyful, joyful up on the mountain high
Joyful, joyful up on the mountain high
Funicula, funiculi, funicula funiculi
Up on the mountain high funicula funiculi.

Note: A "funiculare" was a train equipped with a gear which engaged a toothed track for climbing steep mountainsides.

Subject: Funiculi Funicula.
From: Joe Offer
Date: 18 May 99 - 08:07 PM

Just a slight correction, Jon. As this library's Webster's New World says, a funicular or funicular railway is a mountain railway on which counterbalanced cars on parallel sets of rails are pulled up and lowered by cables. The definition doesn't quite fit my experience - the funicular railways I've ridden have parallel rails only at the point where the two cars would meet. There's a single rail for most of the distance. If you sit in the front of the car, it looks like the other car is going to run right into you, but then it turns away at the last moment and misses you by inches. In my book, it's more fun than a roller coaster. I ride 'em wherever I find 'em. The most memorable ones I've ridden are the newly restored Angel's Flight in downtown Los Angeles, the two across the river from downtown Pittsburgh, and the one that goes to the castle in Salzburg, Austria.
Mega-cool.
-Joe Offer, rail fan-
...but the song doesn't seem to have much to do with railroads, does it?

Well anyway, they are railroads that carry passengers up mountainsides, which is how the two lovers got to the top of the mountain where they could see France, Portugal, and Spain all at the same time-the mountain must have been D**ned high or else it's somewhere in the western Pyrenees (SP?)

This song was written in Naples and environs, in around the 1880's, when a funicular railway was installed that I believe goes part way up the side of Mount Vesuvius. The Neapolitans immediately wrote a song about it. The Italian words that I know are about a fellow who "Goes up" where there is "hot fire" to see his sweetie, who is, so to speak, cold to him. The connection with the funicular is implied: he rides it up the mountain. The chorus just has fun with the name "funicular."

I was told in Naples that a funicular is a cog-wheel railway.

Whoops. Got to go. More on this later, as well, I hope, as an alternate set of Italian words. - Rita Ferrara

I was looking through Dick & Beth Best's 'New Song Fest' in response to another thread and there on page 82 is Funiculi, Funicula with the first two verses as campfire gives them plus a third:-

Some think it wrong to set the feet a-dancing
But not so I! But not so I!
Some think that eyes should keep from coyly glancing,
Upon the sly! Upon the sly!
But, oh! To me the mazy dance is charming,
Divinely sweet! Divinely sweet!
And surely there is naught that is alarming
In nimble feet! In nimble feet!

Still too lazy to look up those words, but here's what I was going to say about funiculars. What I was told in Naples was that the cogwheel actually helps propel the train up the mountain. There may or may not be two parallel tracks for the wheels (in Naples I believe there were), but under the train there is a notched single track which engages the cogs in the cogwheel. That's about all I know about it, except that the Neapolitans are very proud of their funicular railway.

Once I'm properly awake, I'll try to find my Italian songbooks and post some more words. - Rita Ferrara

The word funicular comes from the Latin word for cord or rope, so I'm sure the original meaning was rail cars pulled by cables. Human nature being what it is, the meaning of the word could certainly have expanded to include cog-wheel railways. Funiculars don't work well for long distances or around curves, so a cog-wheel railway would be more likely on a mountain. It's worth a trip to Pittsburgh or Salzburg to ride a real funicular, though.

Joe, I where is there a funicular in Salzburg? Up to the top of the castle, maybe? I rode a cable car there but don't remember any funicular. ?

Maybe the one in Naples used a combination of cogwheels and ropes or cables? Actually I think it's still running. - Rita

bigJ - My source has the additional verse as the second verse rather than the third (?) According to The Scottish Students Songbook (first edition 1897, this edition 1897), the tune was by L. Denza. The words in it, by Edward Oxenford (except for Listen! instead of Harken!), are pretty much the same as the Rise Up Singing lyrics.

This is the version in Neapolitan dialect by Giuseppe Turco (the music is from Luigi Denza 1846-1922) as published by G.Ricordi & C. Editori, Milano, Italy 1991. I believe this is the version that Pavarotti sings frequently.

Aissera, Nanniné me ne sagliete,

Here is some additional information on the original lyrics I found at:
http://www.vesuvioinrete.it/funicolare/e_funicolare_funiculi.htm
with the picture of the title page of the sheet music and midi file

The song was written by journalist Peppino Turco and was set by Luigi Denza in 1880. They drew the inspiration from the inauguration of the first funicular of Mt.Vesuvius. They composed this music in few hours, and in spite of that the song met with success. The famous melody was sang the first time in the rooms of Quisisana Hotel in Castellammare di Stabia. Turco and Denza presented it to the Piedigrotta's day in the same year. The success roused contributed to diffuse Neapolitan song in the world and to recall a lot of tourists.

As posted by Escamilo, the song was written originally by G. Turco with music by Luigi Denza, 1880.
Will S. Rising first made it a hit in 1885 in New York, with a version called "Jammo! Onward Let Us Go," published by Willis Woodward and Co., NY, and written by Sidney Rosenfeld.

Rosenfeld's words, as sung by Rising, are given in pdmusic: Jammo
Public Domain Music gives the English revision (three verses) and the Neopolitan original.

Chorus:
Jammo Jammo, Onward let us go,
Jammo Jammo, Upward let us go,
Funiculi, funicula,
Funiculi, funicula,
Ncoppa jammo ja "Funiculi, funicula."

Years ago, when folk song parodies were getting airplay (Allan Sherman, "My Son the Folksinger" et el.) even imitators had imitators. One of the Allan Sherman derivatives, I forget who, did a song called "Marvin" to the tune of Funiculi, Funicula.

All I remember are the beginning, a bit of the chorus and the last line. Feel free to fill in the gaps.

Some think that raising kids is so bucolic
But that's a lie
But that's a lie.
With Marvin, I could become an alcoholic
And here is why

MARVIN, YOU'RE A ROTTEN KID
By: Christine Nelson

Some think that kids should be in bed by seven,
And so do I,
And so do I.

But Marvin won't go to be before eleven,
He starts to cry,
And so do I.

One time I thought that I would slip a mickey,
Into his juice,
His orange juice.

I tried but oh that kid is really tricky,
He switched the glass,
So what's the use?

(Chorus)
Marvin, Marvin, you're a rotten kid.
Marvin, Marvin, be like your brother Sid.
I'm getting grey, so go away; now just for once do what I say,
Go and play in traffic, don't come back 'til Saturday


Some think that raising kids is so bucolic,
I always did,
I really did.

With Marvin, I could become an alcoholic,
I almost did,
But he's my kid.

We bought a car for him to ride to school in,
A Jag-u-are,
Is that bizarre?

Then he insisted that we put a pool in,
Not in the yard,
But in the car.

(Chorus)
Marvin, Marvin, you're a rotten kid.
Marvin, Marvin, I'm gonna flip my lid.
It's such a sin; It's such a crime.
You're just so rotten all the time!
I wish that I could sell you but I wouldn't get a dime!
I wish that I could sell you but I wouldn't get a dime!

Some think that kids today are awfully thankless,
You ask me why,
I'll tell you why.

It stems from the fact today that kids are spankless,
And yet they cry,
Oh how they cry.

We tried to buy him everything we're able,
We bought him clothes,
A brand new nose.

Marvin, get out from underneath that table,
Your brand new nose,
Just ripped my hose.

(Chorus)
Marvin, Marvin, you're a rotten kid.
Marvin, Marvin, look at what you did
Don't break my heart; Do as you're told,
You know you're mommy hates to scold!
Stop chewing on your teddy bear,
You're twen-tee-eight-years old.

I don't speak Italian, but I've heard that Italian is a phonetic language; that is, if you know how a word is spelled, then you know how it is supposed to be pronounced, and vice versa. That's assuming you have learned a few simple rules about how various letters and letter-combinations are pronounced.

I don't know, but I would guess the various dialects of Italian work the same way—that is, they change the spelling as necessary to indicate how each word is pronounced in each dialect, but they still follow rigid rules.

In addition, there might be some vowel shifts that are too subtle to be represented with spelling changes, but you might be able to ignore these without being too far wrong.

So what you probably need to do is (1) learn how to pronounce standard Italian, (2) get a reliable printed text written in Neapolitan, and (3) apply the rules you have learned to the text.

Look here: Italian alphabet and Italian phonology at Wikipedia. (That last article is disappointingly technical. Maybe you can find something easier.)

On second thought, maybe you can skip that article and go directly to this one, which looks easier: Neapolitan language (What? They call it a language instead of a dialect? Shows you how much I know!)

Also, look at the links at the bottom of those pages.

Don't take anything I have said as gospel, but I hope it's good enough to get you started.

Vesuvius railway to reopen after 60 years



Some 60 years after it was last used, the famous Thomas Cook funicular railway on Italy's Mount Vesuvius is set to reopen. The railway, which was opened in 1880, and had to be rebuilt after the volcano erupted in 1910, was shut in 1944, when the last major eruption happened. Now, according to The Times newspaper, the railway is to be restored to its former glory following an agreement between the Campagnia region of Italy, the Vesuvius National Park and the Vesuvius Observatory. Amilcare Troiano, of the Vesuvius National Park, reportedly told the newspaper that the railway will initially run from San Vito to the observatory, some 200 metres from the top of the famous mountain, and that eventually it would be extended to the very top of the volcano.

£20m railway line under the cloud of Vesuvius and mafia war

By Malcolm Moore in Naples12:01AM BST 15 May 2007
A £5.5 billion transport project in Italy that includes a railway to ferry tourists to the top of Vesuvius has become mired in controversy amid warnings of an imminent volcanic eruption and a mafia war at the foot of the mountain.

Herculaneum, a town at the foot of the volcano, is to be the first stop on a £20 million reconstruction of Thomas Cook's 19th-century funicular railway. However, there is a "one-in-two" chance of the volcano erupting in the next few years. A survey of the volcano last month warned that 300,000 people could die in an eruption.
"The rule is that the longer the period of inactivity, the bigger the eruption," said Augusto Neri, of the National Geophysical and Vulcanology Institute.
Vesuvius erupted eight times in the 19th century, and in 1906, 1929 and 1944. The last eruption destroyed the original railway.
The new project, to be completed in 2009, is to be financed mostly by the European Union.
Alessandro Crocetta, a spokesman for the regional transport authority, was relaxed about the apparent threat. He said: "Well, if it erupts, it erupts." The decision is all the more remarkable considering that only four years ago, the city council launched a £500 million compensation scheme to move villagers away from the volcano.
A law was passed forbidding further construction within 1.5 miles of Vesuvius, about five miles from Naples.
The 550,000 people who lived in houses inside the "red zone" were offered £20,000 towards the cost of a new house somewhere else.
Almost half of Herculaneum's population took the offer and abandoned their homes. The departure of locals left the way open for the Camorra, the local mafia, to move into their homes.
The area is now regarded as one of the most dangerous parts of the city as gangs wage a turf war.

However, the regional transport authority, headed by Ennio Cascetta, insists that the railway will help regenerate the area.
"It will have an effect on crime in the city, because the economy will improve," he said.
The funicular railway is part of a larger project to improve the underground system of Naples.
Lord Rogers, Sir Norman Foster, Anish Kapoor and Zaha Hadid are among the architects who have designed stations for the metro.
However, there are fears that the project may benefit the Camorra.
According to Italy's anti-mafia commission, 12 per cent of Italy's construction companies are tied to the mafia. A further 12 per cent of firms providing cement and building materials are run by organised crime syndicates.
In Naples, the local council has taken steps to award public contracts to non-Camorra companies. However, firms are suspected of either paying protection money or buying concrete from the gangs. The anti-mafia commission said the "entrepreneurial capacity" of the mob in the construction sector was growing fast and assisting their laundering of drug money.
Last week almost 100 gangsters were arrested in Nola, near the foot of Vesuvius, to investigate "links between local and national politicians and public contracts".
Meanwhile, at Herculaneum, where work is already beginning to restore Thomas Cook's original station, six people have been gunned down in the past week.
Nevertheless, Mr Cascetta said a railway line to the top of Vesuvius was "something romantic".
