I was unable to locate the song on Youtube and also unable to find lyrics, although one site said they were talking with the publisher about getting the lyrics. So, unless someone has the CD, it may prove very difficult to locate.

Giorgio, I am working on it. However, I cannot continue until tomorrow.

I have the first stanza done--except for one word or phrase.

I will be asking a friend to help me figure out a few words before posting the lyrics. Hang tough.



Oh, have you ever heard a song named 'Io Vagabondo'?

LYRIC ADD

Don't Get Me Wrong by Andy Roberts

This is my song for you alone
Hoping you don't change
Although the mist inside the room
Hides the sadness in your eyes
When I need to talk to you
You're always out of range

This is my song for anyone
Try to stick around
Though the masters of your eyes
Burn the house of reason down
Pin your shoulders to the wall
And drive you underground

GUITAR BREAK

This is my song for everyone
Please don't get me wrong
'Cause when the tide has cut you off
And strangers shoot you as you stand
A flower held in either hand
You don't nee-eed a song
[the singer turns the single syllable word "need" into two syllables]

This is my song for you alone
Hoping you don't change
Although the mist inside the room
Hides the sadness of your eyes
Conceals the acid in your eyes
When I need to talk to you
You're always out of range

GUITAR FADES OUT

Gio, if I post the lyrics I have for Io Vagabondo, could you please help me with the translation? I can manage the pronunciation, but some of the phrasing/meanings escape me.

Io Vagabondo

Io un giorno crescerò
e nel cielo della vita volerò.
Ma un bimbo che ne sa
sempre azzurra non
può essere l'età…

Poi, una notte di settembre
mi svegliai, il vento sulla
pelle, sul mio corpo il
chiarore delle stelle;
chissà dov'era casa mia
e quel bambino che
giocava in un cortile…

Io, vagabondo che son io,
vagabondo che non sono altro
soldi in tasca non ne ho,
ma lassù mi è rimasto Dio.

Sì, la strada è ancora là
un deserto mi sembrava la città.
Ma un bimbo che ne sa sempre
azzurra non può essere l'età.

Poi, una notte di settembre
me ne andai, il fuoco
di un camino, non è caldo
come il sole del mattino,
chissà dov'era casa mia
e quel bambino che
giocava in un cortile…

Io, vagabondo che son io,
vagabondo che non sono altro
soldi in tasca non ne ho,
ma lassù mi è rimasto Dio.

vagabondo che son io,
vagabondo che non sono altro
soldi in tasca non ne ho,
ma lassù mi è rimasto Dio.

There was (and is) a large Italian population in Montreal where I lived when this song was a hit back in the early 1970s. I had many Italian friends and they turned me onto the song. Over the years I have on and off meant to learn it and sing it. I realize it's a big job to translate it and there is no hurry--I have waited 39 years, so a while longer is no problem. It is also the New Years season and you have family, so if you can help later in the new year I would be very grateful to you.

Buon anno, Giorgio, per voi e la vostra famiglia.

Bruce

I'm sure he says 'Hides the sadness of your eyes'. However, if I were going to sing it I would change it to 'Hides the sadness of your sighs' to avoid the eyes/eyes repetition. But that's just me.

This is the translate, say me if it's Ok

A day I will grow
and I will fly in the sky of life,
but what does a child know about it
the age can't be
blue for ever…

Then a September night I woke up
the wind on my skin
the gleam of the stars on my body
who knows where my home was
and that child
who played in a yard…

Me, what a vagabond I am
I'm nothing else than a vagabond
I've got no coins in my pocket
But up there I've left God

Yes, the road is there yet
and the city looked to me like a desert
but what does know a child about it
the age can't be blue for ever…

Then a September night I left
the fire of a fireplace is not so warm
like the morning sun,
who knows where my home was
and that child
who played in a yard…

Me, what a vagabond I am
I'm nothing else than a vagabond
I've got no coins in my pocket
But up there I've left God



Bruce, if you can, help me with Can't Get Away From You lyrics by Chunky, Novi & Ernie (and Nicolette Larson). I wait it by many months.

Gio, ti ringrazio tanto. The translation is excellent; it's exactly what I needed.

I will not be able to start on Can't Get Away From You until Monday. But I will get to it then. I hope that is ok. Ciao for now.
