Sole alla valle
E sole alla collina
Per le campagne
Non c'è più nessuno
Sun in the valley
And sun on the hill
in the fields
There no-one any more
 
Addio addio amore
Io vado via
Amara terra mia
Amara e bella
Goodbye Goodbye love
I'm leaving
o my bitter homeland
Bitter and beautiful
 
Cieli infiniti
E volti come pietra
Mani incallite ormai
Senza speranza
endless skies
And faces like stone
Calloused hands now
hopeless
 
Addio addio amore
Io vado via
Amara terra mia
Amara e bella
Goodbye Goodbye love
I'm leaving
o my bitter homeland
Bitter and beautiful
 
Fra gli uliveti è nata
Già la luna
Un bimbo piange
Allatta un seno magro
Among the olive trees has risen
Already the moon
A child is crying
nursed by a meagre breast
 
Addio addio amore
Io vado via
Amara terra mia
Amara e bella
Goodbye Goodbye love
I'm leaving
o my bitter homeland
Bitter and beautiful
