The ballad of Miché

When they opened his cell
It was already late
Because hanging with a rope around his neck
Miché was cold
Every time I hear the song
Of a rooster, I'll think
About that night in jail
When Miché hung himself
Tonight Miché
Hung himself to a nail because
He didn't want to spend twenty years in jail
Far away from you
I know that Miché
Has chosen to die so that you
Would be left with the memory of the great love
He felt for you
Although Miché
Didn't write to you to explain why
He left the world, you know he did it
Only for you
They sentenced him to twenty years
That was the court's verdict
Because one day he killed
The one who wanted to steal his Marì
That's why they sentenced him
To rot in jail for twenty years
But now that he hung himself
They'll have to open his door
In darkness Miché
Flew away knowing that he
Could never tell you he had killed
Only for you
Tomorrow at three
He will be put in a mass grave
Without a priest or a mass because
They have no mercy for suicides
Tomorrow Miché
Will be in the wet ground
And someone will put upon him
A cross with his name and the date
