Non ho l'età, Gigliola Cinquetti

Winner of the 1964 Sanremo edition, it was also the winning song in the 1964 Eurovision Song Contest, held in Copenhagen.
Cinquetti was sixteen years old, making her the youngest Sanremo winner ever, and the second youngest Eurovision winner in history. The song, written by Nisa, Mario Panzeri and Gene Colonnello, was performed at Sanremo by Cinquetti and French singer Patricia Carli; it was a surprise at the Festival and kept the top position in the Italian hit parade only for only two weeks in a row, surpassed by "Una lacrima sul viso" by Bobby Solo.

After the Copenhagen victory, the song appeared in other languages: "No tengo edad" (Spanish), "Je suis à toi" (French), "This Is My Prayer" (English), "Yumemiru omoi" (Japanese), "Heyr mína bæn" (Icelandish).

Non ho l'età
Non ho l'età per amarti
Non ho l'età
per uscire sola con te
E non avrei
Non avrei
Nulla da dirti
Perché tu sai
Molte più cose di me
I'm not old enough
I'm not old enough to love you
I'm not old enough
to go out alone with you
And I would not have
I would not have
Anything to tell you
Because you know
many more things than me
 
Lascia che io viva
Un amore romantico
Nell'attesa
Che venga quel giorno
Ma ora no
Let me live
a romantic love
while waiting
for that day to come
But not now
 
Non ho l'età
Non ho l'età per amarti
Non ho l'età
per uscire sola con te
Se tu vorrai
Se tu vorrai
Aspettarmi
Quel giorno avrai
Tutto il mio amore per te
I'm not old enough
I'm not old enough to love you
I'm not old enough
to go out alone with you
If you would like
If you would like
to wait for me
That day you will have
All my love for you
 
Lascia che io viva
Un amore romantico
Nell' attesa
Che venga quel giorno
Ma ora no
Let me live
a romantic love
while waiting
for that day to come
But not now
 
Non ho l'età
Non ho l'età per amarti
Non ho l'età
per uscire sola con te
Se tu vorrai
Se tu vorrai
Aspettarmi
Quel giorno avrai
Tutto il mio amore per te
I'm not old enough
I'm not old enough to love you
I'm not old enough
to go out alone with you
If you would like
If you would like
to wait for me
That day you will have
All my love for you
