Perry Como In Italy - 1966

Santa Lucia

Sul mare luccica l'astro d'argento
placida é l'onda
prospero é il ventoTranslation: The silver moon is shining above the sea, the waves are slow and the wind is lively.
 
Sul mare luccica l'astro d'argento
placida é l'onda
prospero é il vento

Venite all’agile
Barchetta mia
Santa Lucia, Santa LuciaTranslation: Come quickly my little boat, Santa Lucia, Santa Lucia!
 
(Interlude)
 
Soft winds caress the sea,
Breezes so tender,
Make every dancing wave,
Gladly surrender!
 
Days here are heavenly,
Nights are pure ecstasy,
Santa Lucia, Santa Lucia!
 
Venite all’agile
Barchetta mia
Santa Lucia, Santa Lucia
 
Original Italian melody by Teodoro Cottrau , 1850
Musical adaptation by Nick Perito with Italian/English lyrics adapted by Ray Charles
 
Note: Santa Lucia used to be the name of a small fishermen's village, on the bay of Naples. 
Then it became part of the city and it still defines that area, which, by the way, is dedicated to
Santa Lucia (Saint Lucia). < Giuliana Gorlei-Pittsey >
