Lyrics  Vacanze Romane:

  • Roma, dove sei? Eri con me Oggi prigione tu, prigioniera io
  • Roma, antica città
  • Ora vecchia realtà
  • Non ti accorgi di me e non sai che pena mi fai
  • Ma piove il cielo sulla città
  • Tu con il cuore nel fango
  • L’oro e l’argento, le sale da te
  • Paese che non ha più campanelli
  • Poi, dolce vita che te ne vai
  • Sul Lungotevere in festa
  • Concerto di viole e mondanità
  • Profumo tuo di vacanze romane
  • Roma bella, tu, le muse tue
  • Asfalto lucido, “Arrivederci Roma”
  • Monetina e voilà
  • C’è chi torna e chi va
  • La tua parte la fai, ma non sai che pena mi dai
  • Ma Greta Garbo di vanità
  • Tu con il cuore nel fango
  • L’oro e l’argento, le sale da te
  • Paese che non ha più campanelli
  • Poi, dolce vita che te ne vai
  • Sulle terrazze del Corso
  • “Vedova allegra”, máìtresse dei caffè
  • Profumo tuo di vacanze romane
Lyrics translated Vacanze Romane Roman Holidays:
  • Rome, where are you? Today you were with me prison, prisoner I
  • Rome, ancient city
  • Now old reality
  • You do not notice me, and you do not know, what pain I do
  • But it rains the sky over the city
  • You with the heart in the mud
  • The gold and silver, tea rooms
  • Country that has no more bells
  • Then, sweet life that you go
  • Along the Tiber in party
  • Viol consort and glamor
  • Scent of your Roman holiday
  • Rome beautiful, you, your muses
  • Asphalt polished, "Arrivederci Roma"
  • Penny and voila
  • There are those who go and those who go
  • Your part to do, but you do not know what pain you give me
  • But Greta Garbo vanity
  • You with the heart in the mud
  • The gold and silver, tea rooms
  • Country that has no more bells
  • Then, sweet life that you go
  • On the terraces of the Course
  • "The Merry Widow", Mistress of coffee
  • Scent of your Roman holiday
