Domenico Modugno - Nel blu dipinto di blu (Volare) (English translation)

English translation

In The Blue Painted Blue

Versions: #1#2#3
I think that dream like that
Will never return
I painted my hands
And face blu
Then all of sudden I was
Abducted by the wind
And I started to fly
In the infinite sky
 
To fly ho ho
To sing ho ho hoho
In the blu, painted blue
Happy to stay up there,
And I flew and flew
Happy, higher than the sun
And yet more up,
While the world
Slowly dissappered down below,
A sweet music playing
Just for me
 
To fly ho ho
To sing ho ho hoho
In the blu, painted blue
Happy to stay up there
 
But all dreams
Vanish at dawn because
When the moon sets,
It takes dreams with itself
But I keep dreaming
In your beautiful eyes,
That are blue as the sky
Spangled with stars
 
To fly, ho ho
To sing ho ho hoho,
In the blue of your blue eyes
Happy to be down here
And I keep flying, happy
Happy, higher than the sun
And yet more up,
While the world
Is slowly vanishing
In your blue eyes
Your voice is a soft music
That plays for me
 
To fly ho ho
To sing ho ho hoho
In the blue of your blue eyes
Happy to be down here
In the blue of your blue eyes
Happy to be down here
With you...

Two typos:
"mentre il mondo pian piano spariva lontano laggiù"
and
" che sono blu come un cielo trapunto di stelle"

Otherwise, very nice.
