Godfather Sicilian Song

Did you like the scene?

Here is the English translation of the song::

The moon is burning in the sky
And I am burning with love
The fire that is consumed
Like my heart

My soul cries
Painfully

I'm not at peace
What a terrible night

The time passes
But there is no dawn
There is no sunshine
If she doesn't return

My earth is burning
And my heart is burning
What she thirsts for is water
I thirst for love

Who will I sing
My song to

If there is no one
Who shows herself
On the balcony

 

And the original in Italian:

 

Brucia la luna n'cielu
E ju bruciu d'amuri
Focu ca si consuma
Comu lu me cori

L'anima chianci
Addulurata

Non si da paci
Ma cchi mala nuttata

Lu tempu passa
Ma non agghiorna
Non c'e mai suli
S'idda non torna 

Brucia la terra mia
E abbrucia lu me cori
Cchi siti d'acqua idda
E ju siti d'amuri

Acu la cantu
La me canzuni

Si no c'e nuddu
Ca s'a affacia
A lu barcuni 


 

 

About the film:

The Godfather is a 1972 American crime film directed by Francis Ford Coppola and produced by Albert S. Ruddy from a screenplay by Mario Puzo and Coppola. Starring Marlon Brando and Al Pacino as the leaders of a fictional New York crime family, the story spans the years 1945-55, concentrating on the transformation of Michael Corleone from reluctant family outsider to ruthless Mafia boss while chronicling the Corleones under the patriarch Vito.

Based on Puzo's best-selling novel of the same name, The Godfather is widely regarded as one of the greatest films in world cinema — and as one of the most influential, especially in the gangster genre. Ranked second to Citizen Kane by the American Film Institute in 2007, it was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry of the Library of Congress in 1990 as being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant".

The film  won three Oscars: Best Picture, Best Actor (Brando) and in the category Best Adapted Screenplay for Puzo and Coppola. Its nominations in seven other categories included Pacino, James Caan and Robert Duvall for Best Supporting Actor and Coppola for Best Director. The success spawned two sequels: The Godfather Part II in 1974, and The Godfather Part III in 1990.
