the world is waking
outside my window

bella ciao

dress my senses into the sunlight
for there are things that I must do

wish me luck now
I have to leave you

bella ciao

with my friends now
up to the city
we're gonna shake the gates of hell

and I will tell them
we will tell them

bella ciao

that our sunlight
is not the franchise
I wish the bastards drop down dead

next time to you see me
I may be smiling

bella ciao

I'll be in prison
or on the TV
and say the sunlight dragged me here

    General CommentI have the album this song comes from. It is a traditional Italian tune, but the words are about a man named Carlo Guilani who was shot dead while protesting at the G8 summit in Genoa, 20th July 2001. He has a website. Look him up.
