Tony Derosas - S’indataraiu (English translation)

Sardinian

S’indataraiu

Su sole su manzanu est bessende,
Taulara s’est tota illuminende
e tue cun sos balcas tuas andende,
e no t’abbies chi ses imbetzende.
 
De orgogliu ti ses postu a tribulare
pro poder a nois totus dimostrare
chi trabagliende cun vera boluntade
un homine si podet mezorare.
 
Salude e gloria ja ti podes meritare
Deus Deus Deus Deus
Deus t’illuminet
pro poder continuare
a esser bonu semper
cun sa familia tua e sos parentes,
cun sos amigos tuos e tota sa jente,
cun totus fizos tuos vida perenne.
 
Ite tribulia totu s’annu…
Aspetende a lu ‘ider mannu…
Isperemus chi siet bonu e prenu
e a nos cumpensare bi penset Deus.
 
Torrende ses a domo famidu e istracu,
oe puru as trabagliadu che a unu macu.
Muzere tua dae su balcone ‘aldiende
E nois cun issa ti semus aspetende…
 
Salude e gloria ja ti podes meritare
Deus Deus Deus Deus
Deus t’illuminet
pro poder continuare
a esser bonu semper
cun sa familia tua e sos parentes,
cun sos amigos tuos e tota sa jente,
cun totus fizos tuos vida perenne.

The Mussel Fisherman

The sun is rising in the morning,
Tavolara1 is all lighting up
and you are leaving with your boats,
and you don’t see that you’re getting old.
 
Proudly you worked yourself to death
to be able to show to all of us
that by working with true goodwill
a man can improve himself.
 
Health and glory is what you just deserve
God God God God
may God enlighten you
so that you will continue
to always be good
to your family and relatives,
to your friends and all the people,
to all your sons forever.
 
What a torment throughout the year…
Expecting to see it big…
Let’s hope it to be good and full
and let God's work reward us.
 
You’re coming back home, hungry and tired,
even today you’ve worked like a madman.
Your wife is watching from the window
and, with her, we are waiting for you .
 
Health and glory is what you just deserve
God God God God
may God enlighten you
so that you will continue
to always be good
to your family and relatives,
to your friends and all the people,
to all your sons forever.

What a beautiful song! It's unbelievable how well traditional music lends itself to more modern arrangements - I have loved both versions, but I must admit that, as lovely as Tony Derosas' version is, I very much prefer the cover.

Anyway, thank you for posting this!

You are right, I also prefer the musical arrangement of the cover. But Tony Derosas is the real composer.
Thank you a lot for your vote and your kind words Regular smile
