"Caruso" as written by and Lucio Dalla....
Qui dove il mare luccia e tira forte il vento
Su una vecchia terrazza
Davanti al golfo di Surriento
Un uomo abbraccia una ragazza dopo che aveva pianto
Poi si schiarisce la voce e ricomincia il canto
Te voglio bene assaie ma tanto tanto bene sai

Vidi le luci in mezzo al mare pensó alle nottie lá in America
Ma erano solo le lampare e la bianca scia di un'elica
Sentí il dolore nella musica si alzó dal pianoforte
Ma quando vide la luna uscire da una nuvola
Gli sembró piú dolce anche la morte
Guardó negli occhi la ragazza quegli occhi verdi come il mare
Poi all'improvviso uscí una lacrima e lui credette di affogare
Te voglio bene assaie ma tanto tanto bene sai
É una catena ormai che scioglie il sangue dint'e vene sai

Potenza della lirica dove ogni dramma é un falso
Che con un pó di trucco e con la mimica puoi diventare un altro
Ma due occhi che ti guardano cosí vicini e veri
Ti fan scordare le parole confondono i pensieri
Cosí diventa tutto piccolo anche le notti lá in America
Ti volti e vedi la tua vita come lá scia di un'elica
Ma si é la vita che finisce ma lui non ci pensó poi tanto
Anzi si sentiva giá felice e ricominció il suo canto
Te voglio bene assaie ma tanto tanto bene sai
É una catena ormai che scioglie il sangue dint'e vene sai
Te voglio bene assaie ma tanto tanto bene sai
É una catena ormai che scioglie il sangue dint'e vene sai

    General CommentThe reason it probably sounds blobby is because the italian has so many more syllables to tell the story. The English translation is much shorter. It is actually a really sad story.
    Here, where the sea shines
    and the wind howls,
    on the old terrace
    beside the gulf of Sorrento,
    a man embraces a girl
    after the tears,
    then clears his throat
    and contines the song:
    I love you very much
    very, very much, you know;
    it is a chain by now
    that heats the blood inside the veins,
    you know...

    He saw the lights out on the sea,
    thought of the nights there in America,
    but they were only the fishermen's lamps
    and the white wash astern.
    He felt the pain in the music
    and stood up from the p iano,
    but when he saw the moon
    emergin from a cloud,
    death also seemed sweeter to him.
    He looked the girl in the eyes,
    those eyes as green as the sea.
    Then suddenly a tear fell
    and he believed he was drowning.

    I love you very much,
    very, very much, you know;
    it is a chain by now
    that heats the blood inside the veins,
    you know...

    The power of opera,
    where every drama is a hoax;
    with a little make-up and with mime
    you can become someone else.
    But two eyes that look at you,
    so close and real,
    make you forget the words,
    confuse your thoughts,
    so everything becomes small,
    also the nights there in America.
    You turn and see your life
    through the white wash astern.
    But, yes, it is life that ends
    and he did not think much about it,
    on the contrary, he already felt happy
    and continued his song:

    I love you very much,
    very, very much, you know;
    it is a chain by now
    that heats the blood inside the veins,
    you know...
