Senza alcun ordine la danza sia.

Senza alcun ordine la danza sia.

Finch’han dal vino
Calda la testa
Una gran festa
Fa preparar.
Se trovi in piazza
Qualche ragazza,
Teco ancor quella
Cerca menar.
Teco ancor quella
Cerca menar.
Senza alcun ordine
La danza sia;
Chi’l minuetto,
Chi la follia,
Chi l’alemanna
Farai ballar.
Ed io frattanto
Dall’altro canto
Con questa e quella
Vo’ amoreggiar.
Ah! la mia lista
Doman mattina
D’una decina
Devi aumentar!

W.A.Mozart, Don Giovanni

Memories always start ‘round midnight.

Memories always start ‘round midnight.

Milan, december 2011

It begins to tell,
‘round midnight, midnight.
I do pretty well, till after sundown,
Suppertime I’m feelin’ sad;
But it really gets bad,
‘round midnight.
Memories always start ‘round midnight
Haven’t got the heart to stand those memories,
When my heart is still with you,
And ol’ midnight knows it, too.
When a quarrel we had needs mending,
Does it mean that our love is ending.
Darlin’ I need you, lately I find
You’re out of my heart,
And I’m out of my mind.
Let our hearts take wings’
‘round midnight, midnight
Let the angels sing,
for your returning.
Till our love is safe and sound.
And old midnight comes around.
Feelin’ sad,
really gets bad
Round…..Round…….Round….Mid…..night….
