judy Lyr Add: Bella Ciao (Italian folk song) (63* d) Lyr Add: ED IL CAPELLO (Italian) 29 Dec 97


Ezio,

I'm glad you're better. And I can see you're really adding to the DT repertoire. Great! Thanks.

I've been out of touch: enjoying the holidays here. Here's one that's been floating around my brain since I looked through my music for Italian songs. It came from one of my favorite books (1000 CHANTS VOL. 1); a French book of folk songs from all over. The book gives no information on the songs so I don't know anything about it. It seems to be about what the soldiers take with them? Something about Garibaldi.

Ed Il Capello

Verse I Ed il capello che noi portiamo
Cio-e l'ombrella, cio-e l'ombrella
Ed il capello che noi portiamo
Cio-e l'ombrella, di noi solda
E tu biondina capricciossa garibaldina tru la la
Tu sei la stella, tu sei la stella
E tu biondina capricciossa garibaldina tru la la
Tu sei la stella, di noi solda

Verse II E le stellette che noi portiamo
Son disciplina di noi solda
E tu biondina (etc.)

Verse III E la boraccia che noi portiamo
L'e la cantina di noi solda

Verse IV
E la gavetta che noi portiam
L'e il lavandino di noi solda

Verse V
E le giberne che noi portiamo
Son ortacicche di noi solda
Verse VI
E questo zaino che noi portiam
L'e la dispensa di noi solda

Bill D: thanks for the Italian sites, I'll go check them out Ezio and everyone: I wish I could post the music, it's a snappy little tune, but I'm not there yet
