Les yeux battus la mine triste
et les joues blêmes
Tu ne dors plus
Tu n'es plus que l'ombre de toi-même
Seul dans la rue tu rôdes
Comme une âme en peine
Et tous les soirs sous sa fenêtre
on peut te voir

Je sais bien que tu l'adores
Et qu'elle a de jolies yeux
Mais tu es trop jeune encore
Pour jouer les amoureux
Et gratte, gratte sur ta mandoline
mon petit Bambino
Ta musique est plus jolie
que tout le ciel de l'Italie
Et chante, chante de ta voix câline
mon petit Bambino
Tu peux chanter tant que tu veux
Elle ne te prend pas au sérieux

Tu peux fumer comme un Monsieur des cigarettes
Te déhancher sur le trottoir quand tu la guettes
Tu peux pencher sur ton oreille, ta casquette
Ce n'est pas ça, qui dans son cœur, te vieillira
L'amour et la jalousie ne sont pas des jeux d'enfant
Et tu as toute la vie pour souffrir comme les grands

Et gratte, gratte sur ta mandoline
Mon petit Bambino
Ta musique est plus jolie
que tout le ciel de l'Italie
Et chante, chante de ta voix câline
mon petit Bambino
Tu peux chanter tant que tu veux
Elle ne te prend pas au sérieux
Tu peux chanter tant que tu veux
Elle ne te prend pas au sérieux
Tu peux chanter tant que tu veux
Bambino
Bambino
Bambino

    General Commenti love this song! bambino! anyway here is a translation to english for all of you who don't know french :P

    Beaten eyes, a sad expression
    and pale cheeks
    You don't sleep any more
    You are just a shadow of yourself
    Only in the street you roam
    Like a heart in sorrow
    And every evening beneath the window
    you can be seen

    I know well that you adore her
    (Bambino, Bambino)
    And that she has pretty eyes
    (Bambino, Bambino)
    But you are still too young
    (Bambino, Bambino)
    To play at lovers
    (Bambino, Bambino)

    And pluck, pluck on your mandolin
    my little Bambino
    Your music is prettier
    than all the Italian sky
    And sing, sing your tender voice
    my little Bambino
    You can sing all you want
    She won't take you seriously

    You can smoke like a cigarette man
    Sway your hips on the pavement as you watch out
    You can tilt your cap over your ear,
    It's not that, which in its heart, will age you
    Love and jealousy are not childs play
    And you have all your life to suffer like grown ups

    And pluck, pluck on your mandolin
    my little Bambino
    Your music is prettier
    than all the Italian sky
    And sing, sing your tender voice
    my little Bambino
    You can sing all you want
    She won't take you seriously
