The following is an English equivalent of the song Silviaby Italian singer-songwriter Vinicio Capossela (born December 14, 1965):

"Sylvia rests in her room

With one hand under her pillow

While outside appears the morning

Which shortly will awaken her.

Sylvia puts her clothes on before the mirror

And on her lips a bit of lipstick.

Let's go carefully on the make-up.

Otherwise, Mommy will grumble.

'Sylvia! Hurry up! It's already 8 (a.m.)!

If you don't get moving !!! ... You're late as usual.

And now enough with all that make-up

Which does you no good ... I already told you so!'

Sylvia does not hear otherwise. She pretends.

She looks at the mirror, little convinced

While a hand closes over her breast,

Still small but ... growing.

(The last two verses then are repeated in their entirety.)

Sylvia now runs over to the mirror

Forgetting that it's 8 o'clock

And finds a thousand fantasies...

Which let her go no further."

What are the English lyrics at the end of Vinicio Capossela's 'Il Grande Leviatano'?

Italian is the language in which Il Grande Leviatano ("The Great Leviathan") is sung by the song's composer, Vinicio Capossela (born December 14, 1965).Specifically, the Hannover-born singer-songwriter composes songs which keep alive the folk music traditions of his family's native Campania in southwest Italy. He also is knowledgeable in English, French and German literary and musical traditions. So it is possible that during a concert he may quote or paraphrase something relevant to water and whales from one of his favorite English writers -- Geoffrey Chaucer (c. 1343-1400), Herbert Melville (1819-1891), or Samuel Taylor Coleridge (1772-1834) -- or even from the Biblical story of Jonah.
