Learn Italian in Song: Via Con Me

Paolo Conte, 1981. Below is the Neri per Caso version that first introduced me to the song.

Via Con Me

Away with Me

Via, via, vieni via di qui, Away, away, come away from here
niente più ti lega a questi luoghi, Nothing more ties you to these places
neanche questi fiori azzurri… not even these blue flowers
via, via, neanche questo tempo grigio Away, away, not even this gray weather
pieno di musiche full of music
e di uomini che ti sono piaciuti… and of men whom you have liked [who have pleased you].
It’s wonderful, it’s wonderful, it’s wonderful,
good luck my baby,
it’s wonderful, it’s wonderful, it’s wonderful,
I dream of you…
chips, chips, du-du-du-du-du
Via, via, vieni via con me, Away, away, come away with me
entra in questo amore buio, Enter this dark love
non perderti per niente al mondo… Don’t get lost for anything in the world
via, via, non perderti per niente al mondo Away, away, don’t get lost for anything in the world [don’t miss…]
lo spettacolo d’arte varia the spectacle of varied art
di uno innamorato di te… Of one who is in love with you.
Via, via, vieni via con me, Away, away, come away with me
entra in questo amore buio, Enter this dark love
pieno di uomini… full of men…
via, entra e fatti un bagno caldo, Away, come in and take a hot bath
c’è un accappatoio azzurro, There’s a blue bathrobe
fuori piove un mondo freddo… Outside it’s raining a cold world
