Rudy Marra - Gaetano (English translation)

Italian

Gaetano

Com’eravamo stupidi, Gaetano
Ci facevamo male e poi ridevamo
Com’eravamo ingenui, Gaetano
Noi liberi sino alla fine e poi ci legavamo
 
E ti ricordi di come eravamo, amo
Ero, eri ero eravamo, amo
Ero, eri, ero eravamo, amo
 
Com’eravamo falsi, Gaetano
Mi avresti ucciso volentieri e ci sorridevamo
Com’eravamo fessi, Gaetano
E quanti soldi spesi senza mai niente in mano
 
E ti ricordi di come eravamo, amo
Ero, eri ero eravamo, amo, amo
 
E adesso c’hai un figlio Gaetano
E adesso a lui che cosa gli diciamo
Non glielo dire no di come eravamo
Stringilo forte e poi poi prendigli la mano
Com’eravamo stupidi Gaetano, com’eravamo falsi
 
Ero, eri ero eravamo, amo, amo
Ero, eri ero eravamo, amo, amo
 
Com’eravamo giovani, Gaetano
I nostri amori persi e anche noi ci perdevamo
Com’eravamo stupidi Gaetano, com’eravamo falsi
 
Ero, eri ero eravamo, amo, amo
Ero, la la la la la.

Submitter's comments:

La canzone all'epoca fece scandalo, così come il video. Ma rivelò un ottimo autore, e musicista originale, capace di elaborare un genere personalissimo, ribattezzato sopa. Apprezzato da colleghi di nome, non dalle masse, per un certo periodo s' è conquistato anche una nicchia di fan oltralpe .

Gaetano

How stupid we were, Gaetano
We hurt and then we laughed
How naive we were, Gaetano
We were free to the end and then we tied
 
And you remember how we were, I love
I was, you were, we were, I love
I was, you were, I was we, I love
 
How fake we were , Gaetano
You would have killed me willingly and we would smile
How foolish we were, Gaetano
And how much money spent with nothing ever in hand
 
And you remember how we were, I love
I was, you were, we were, I love, I love
 
And now you have a son, Gaetano
And now what we tell him
Do not tell him how we were, no
Hold him tight and then take his hand
How stupid we were Gaetano, how false we were
 
I was, you were, we were, I love, I love
I was, you were, we were, I love, I love
 
How young we were, Gaetano
Our loves lost and we lost ourselves too
How stupid we were Gaetano, how false we were
 
I was, you were, we were, I love, I love
I was, la la la la.
 
Thanks a lot for your attention!

The song and video at the time made a scandal.
In his career Marra proved to be an excellent author, appreciated by colleagues, less by the public. His 'sopa' is a very personal style, but he can remember Piero Ciampi, Rino Gaetano, Fabrizio De Andrè or Luigi Tenco.
