This is an adaptation of words to the same tune. You can try an

on-line translator for the literal meaning.

CHE BELLA COSA È NA IURNATA 'E SOLE

N'ARIA SERENA DOPPO NA TEMPESTA!

PE' LL'ARIA FRESCA PARE GIÀ NA FESTA...

CHE BELLA COSA NA JURNATA 'E SOLE

When I first saw you with your smile so tender

my heart was captured, my soul surrendered.

I spent a lifetime waiting for the right time

now that you're near the time is here at last!

CHORUS

MA N'ATU SOLE CHIÙ BELLO OI NÈ

O SOLE MIO STA 'NFRONTE A TE!

O SOLE O SOLE MIO

STA 'NFRONTE A TE

STA 'NFRONTE A TE

It's now or never come hold me tight

kiss me my darling, be mine tonight.

Tomorrow will be too late

it's now or never

my love won't wait.

QUANNO FA NOTTE E 'O SOLE SE NE SCENNE

ME VENE QUASE' NA MALINCUNIA

SOTTO A FENESTA TOIA RESTARRIA

QUANNO FA NOTTE E 'O SOLE SE NE SCENNE

Just like a willow we would cry an ocean

if we lost true love and sweet devotion.

Your lips excite me let your arms invite me,

for who knows when we'll meet again this way.
