This song is very hurting for italian people because it reminds of the fascism in Italy, and seen that this song is part of fascist propaganda, and fascism is a crime, I think it should be removed from LT in respect of the million people who died in World War II.
I'm sorry if I disturbed you and I hope you'll remove that lyrics ASAP.

Kindly yours.

This is a Fascist song "Little Black Face". It speaks of the fascist in their black shirts, Il Duce (Benito Mussolini). It is fascist propaganda abdicating overthrow.
It has been translated already.

Fascism and colonial conquest in Africa, with crass racism and sexism to boot.
A masterpiece, indeed.
Well, we all know how that turned out, don't we?

I find this kind of song brings out the worst in human nature. Still it has historical value.

I can hardly imagine young Italians dreaming of conquering North Africa yet again though, so I don't think it poses an immediate threat. Maybe keeping it could be OK if it was clearly flagged as fascist propaganda, so that a casual reader could be reminded why it's here and what it's really about.

Our rules don't allow this kind of songs, so I unpublished it.
Petit élève, you are right, it has mainly a historical meaning as today Italy is not a colonialist country, but it is still a fascist and male chauvinist song. It was very popular during the fascist dictatorship, almost a symbol of the regime, so today it's a fascist party apology, which is a crime according to current Italian laws.
