Monique Lyr Add: Mudcat singaround songs NOT in English (130* d) RE: Lyr Add: Mudcat singaround songs NOT in English 24 Jan 21


Folk song from the Abruzzo region of Italy in local dialect about how sad people feel when they part as they leave their places to go to pick olives in the Fall season.
CADE L'ULIVA (Italian dialect)
(NEBBI' A LA VALLE)

Nebbi' a la valle nebbi' a la muntagne,
ne le campagne nun ce sta nesciune.
Addije, addije amore,
casch'e se coije...la live
casch'a l'albere li foije.

Casche la live e casche la genestre,
casche la live e li frunne genestre.
Addije, addije amore,
casch'e se coije...la live
casch'a l'albere li foije.
THE OLIVES FALL
(FOG IN THE VALLEY)

Fog in the valley, fog in the mountain,
In the countryside there's nobody,
Goodbye, goodbye love,
The olives fall and are picked,
The leaves fall from the trees.

The olives fall and so do the brooms (lit. and the broom falls)
The olives fall and so do the brooms leaves (lit. "and the broom leaves"),
Goodbye, goodbye love,
The olives fall and are picked,
The leaves fall from the trees.
Rendition by Alizée Elefante on 06/27/2005, another rendition, another one.
