28 Feb 06 - 06:56 PM (#1681689)
From: GUEST,

As we may all know torna a surriento
is one of the best loved italian folk songs
there are alot of versions around
I sing tenor and would love to know the following version
in english, to sing is to know what I'm singing
about and then see it in my imagination, thank yu

Torna a surriento

Guarda il mare com'e,bello

spira tanto sentimento

come il tuo soare accento

che me, desto, fa sognar

senti come lieve sale

daigiardini odor d'aranci:

un profumo non v'hueguale

per chi palpita d'amor

E tu di ci''Io parto, addio

T'allontani dal mio core:
questa terra dell' amore

hai la forza di lasciar?

Ma non mi fuggir

non darmi piu tormento

Tor na a Sorrento, non farmir

then it goes on to another verse

thank you michael booth

I don't have time to do a comparison of your italiano vs english, but here is a link, maybe it will be useful to start the discussion.
