"Bella Ciao" as written by Egon Blank Tomas, Jesper Klas Andersson and Pd Traditional....
The world is waking outside my window
Bella ciao, bella ciao, bella ciao ciao ciao
Drags my senses into the sunlight
For there are things that I must do
Wish me luck now, I have to leave you
Bella ciao, bella ciao, bella ciao ciao ciao
With my friends now up to the city
We're going to shake the Gates of Hell
And I will tell them - we will tell them
Bella ciao, bella ciao, bella ciao ciao ciao
That our sunlight is not for franchise
And wish the bastards drop down dead
Next time you see me I may be smiling
Bella ciao, bella ciao, bella ciao ciao ciao
I'll be in prison or on the TV
I'll 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.
