VeganMoFo 2013 #20: Funiculi Funicula Send-Off to Another Year of MoFo Goodness!

Papa Macaroon was from Naples. As Little Kid Macaroon, I learned a popular traditional Neapolitan song by Peppino Turco & Luigi Danza in called “Funiculi Funicula.” I think I bugged Momma Macaroon singing and skipping around our home. Who knew a song about a cable car would be so fun and exciting!
Thanks for joining us on our VeganMoFo run of Italian food. Please have a listen to one of my favorite songs. Feel free to try to sing along (lyrics are below)
Fino alla prossima volta!
(Until next ti me)

sung by Andrea Bocelli

Aissera, oje Nanniné, me ne sagliette,
tu saje addó, tu saje addó
Addó ‘stu core ‘ngrato cchiù dispietto
farme nun pò! Farme nun pò!
Addó lu fuoco coce, ma se fuje
te lassa sta! Te lassa sta!
E nun te corre appriesso, nun te struje
sulo a guardà, sulo a guardà.

Jamme, jamme ‘ncoppa, jamme jà,
Jamme, jamme ‘ncoppa, jamme jà,
funiculì, funiculà!
funiculì, funiculà!
‘ncoppa, jamme jà,
funiculì, funiculà!

Né, jamme da la terra a la montagna!
Nu passo nc’è! Nu passo nc’è!
Se vede FranciaProceta e la Spagna
Io veco a tte! Io veco a tte!
Tirato co la fune, ditto ‘nfatto,
‘ncielo se va, ‘ncielo se va.
Se va comm’ ‘a lu viento a l’intrasatto,
guè, saglie, sà!

Jamme, jamme …

Se n’è sagliuta, oje né, se n’è sagliuta,
la capa già! La capa già!
È gghiuta, po’ è turnata, po’ è venuta,
sta sempe ccà! Sta sempe ccà!
La capa vota, vota, attuorno, attuorno,
attuorno a tte! Attuorno a tte!
Stu core canta sempe nu taluorno:
Sposamme, oje né! Sposamme, oje né!

Jamme, jamme … [6]
