This Land of Ours

This land of ours has no borders
other than a dancing sky and the immense plain.
Yes, this land of ours has no borders—
love is there for you and me.
 
Where do you come from?
To where will you return?
If you stop by, my door is open.
The dancing fire sings out hope.
Love is there for you and me.
All together...
 
This land of ours has no borders
other than a dancing sky and the immense plain.
Yes, this land of ours has no borders—
love is there for you and me.
 
The sky adorns the mountain tops
with the long mirage of its clouds,
and me—I sing—and you—you sing
love is here for you and me.
Again...
 
This land of ours has no borders
other than a dancing sky and the immense plain.
Yes, this land of ours has no borders—
love is there for you and me.
 
The howling wind has in its retinue
a thousand legends out there on the plains.
But the most beautiful one is that I love you—
love is there for you and me.
All together...
 
This land of ours has no borders
other than a dancing sky and the immense plain.
Yes, this land of ours has no borders—
love is there for you and me—
love is there for me—
love is there for you and me.

Comments van auteur:

This is an adaptation of "This Land Is Your Land," a folk song written in 1940 by Woody Guthrie. The complicated pedigree of the song is explained in https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/This_Land_Is_Your_Land
-
Dalida dramatically changed up the usual presentation of the song, giving it an up-tempo and snappy beat. The lyrics very, very loosely reflect the original lyrics but the message of the song is completely different. For Guthrie, the song was patriotism and love of country. For Dalida, it about country and romantic love.
