Pienso que un sueño parecido no volverá más
y me pintaba las manos lon cara d' azul
y de improviso el viento rápido me llevó
y me hizo volar en el cielo infinito.

Volaré oh oh
Cantaré oh oh oh oh
Nel blu dipinto di blu
felice di stare lassu

Y volando, volando feliz,
yo me encuentro más alto, más alto que el sol,
mienstras el mundo se aleja despacio de mí
una música dulce tocada sólo para mí.

Volaré oh oh
Cantaré oh oh oh oh
Nel blu dipinto di blu
felice di stare lassu

Pienso que un sueño parecido no volverá más
y me pintaba las manos lon cara d' azul
y de improviso el viento rápido me llevó
y me hizo volar en el cielo infinito.

Volaré oh oh
Cantaré oh oh oh oh
Nel blu dipinto di blu
felice di stare lassu

Volaré oh oh
Cantaré oh oh oh oh
Nel blu dipinto di blu
felice di stare lassu

Pienso que un sueño parecido no volverá más
y me pintaba las manos lon cara d' azul
y de improviso el viento rápido me llevó
y me hizo volar en el cielo infinito.

Volaré oh oh
Cantaré oh oh oh oh
Nel blu dipinto di blu
felice di stare lassu

Nel blu dipinto di blu
felice di stare lassu

    General CommentIt's a pity that in this site there is no trace of the original composer and singer of this song: Domenico Modugno (that was italian, of course).
    This song is the most famous italian song in the world, but almost no one is aware of the fact that its title is NOT "Volare" but it is "Nel Blu Dipinto di Blu" (In the Blue Painted of Blue).

    To Da Kool King: "Poi d'improvviso venivo dal vento rapido" means: then suddenly I was taken by the wind (that is, wind pulls him up towards the sun, making him fly)

    I think in a dream it seemed I wouldn't return,
    and I painted each of my hands blue,
    and suddenly a fast wind carried me,
    and I prepared to fly in the infinite sky,

    I flew, oh oh,
    I sang, oh oh oh oh,
    (Italian) In the blue (sky), painted in blue,
    happy to be slow, (This could mean a lot of things)

    (Spanish)
    and flying, happily flying,
    I found myself taller, taller than the sun,
    While the world slowly moved away from me,
    A sweet music played just for me.

    I flew, oh oh
    I sang, oh oh oh oh
    (Italian) In the blue, painted in blue,
    happy to be slow

    (Spanish)

    I think in a dream it seemed i wouldn't return,
    And i painted each of my hands blue,
    And suddenly a fast wind carried me,
    and I did fly in the infinite sky

    I flew, oh oh,
    I sang, oh oh oh oh,
    (Italian)In the blue, painted in blue
    Happy to be slow

    I flew, oh oh,
    I sang, oh oh oh oh,
    (Italian) in the blue, painted in blue,
    Happy to be slow

    (Spanish)

    I think in a dream it seemed i wouldn't return,
    And I painted my hands blue,
    and suddenly a fast wind carried me,
    and i did fly in the infinite sky

    I flew, oh oh,
    I sang, oh oh oh oh,
    (Italian) In the blue, painted in blue,
    happy to be slow,

    In the blue, painted in blue,
    happy to be slow
    (x3)
    in the blue, painted in blue.

    General Commenti have the dean martin version with italian parts (i seem to prefer this version), and it goes a little like this:

    Volare, oh oh
    Cantare, oh oh oh oh
    Let's fly way up to the clouds
    Away from the maddening crowds
    We can sing in the glow of a star that I know of
    Where lovers enjoy peace of mind
    Let us leave the confusion and all disillusion behind
    Just like birds of a feather, a rainbow together we'll find

    Volare, oh oh
    E cantare, oh oh oh oh
    No wonder my happy heart sings
    Your love has given me wings

    Penso che un sogno cosi non ritorni mai piu
    Mi dipingevo le mani e la faccia di blu
    Poi d'improvviso venivo dal vento rapido
    E incominciavo a volare nel cielo infinito
    (i think that a dream will not ever return
    i painted my hands and face a dark blue
    [*] then through improvisation i came upon a rapid wind
    and i began to fly in the infinite sky)

    Volare, oh oh
    E cantare, oh oh oh oh
    Nel blu, dipinto di blu
    Felice di stare lassu
    E volavo, volavo felice piu in alto del sole ed ancora piu su
    Mentre il mondo pian piano spariva lontano laggiu
    Una musica dolce suonava soltanto per me
    (and flying, happily flying,
    I found myself taller, taller than the sun,
    While the world slowly moved away from me,
    A sweet music played just for me.)

    Volare, oh oh
    E cantare, oh oh oh oh
    No wonder my happy heart sings
    Your love has given me wings
    Nel blu, dipinto di blu
    Felice di stare lassu
    (In the blue, painted in blue,
    happy to be slow)

    General Comment" felice di stare lassu' "

    This doesn't mean happy to be slow. It means "happy to be/stay up there/in heaven."
