Le rose sono rosse

Un giorno desti a me
un libro in prestito,
su quelle pagine
io scrissi allor:
 
Le viole sono blu,
le rose rosse, amor,
dolce è la musica
ma non come sei tu!
 
Ci ritrovammo ancor
e sulle pagine
tornai a scrivere
con tutto il cuor:
 
Le viole sono blu,
le rose rosse, amor,
dolce è la musica
ma non come sei tu!
 
Finì la scuola
ed io lontano me ne andai,
tu mi scrivesti
ed io non ti risposi mai:
 
Le viole sono blu,
le rose rosse, amor,
dolce è la musica
ma non come sei tu!
 
Ho visto un angelo,
ha gli occhi come i tuoi
e quando a scuola andrà
qualcuno scriverà:
 
Le viole sono blu,
le rose rosse, amor,
dolce è la musica
ma non come sei tu!

Roses Are Red

One day you gave me
a book on loan.
On its pages,
I then wrote:
 
violets are blue,
roses are red, love,
music is sweet
but not as sweet as you!
 
We met again
and on the pages,
I started writing again
with all of my heart:
 
violets are blue,
roses are red, love,
music is sweet
but not as sweet as you!
 
School ended
and I moved far away.
You wrote to me
and I never wrote you back:
 
violets are blue,
roses are red, love,
music is sweet
but not as sweet as you!
 
I saw an angel—
she has eyes like yours
and when she goes to school
someone will write:
 
violets are blue,
roses are red, love,
music is sweet
but not as sweet as you!
