    Default Pink Martini - Ninna Nanna

    Can somebody translate it to english?

    Ninna nanna marinare
    'Ngopp a varca, miezo o mare
    Io te parl e nun respunn
    Te si perze miez o suonn

    Te vurria magna' de vas
    Ma ho paura e te sceta'
    Cosi' guarde da luntane
    Co' stu core innammurat

    Quann aggia' spetta
    D'averti questa sera
    Co'sta luna quiena?
    Quann aggia ' sogna'
    Di dirti quanto t'amo
    Co' stu' core 'man - ma tu -
    sogni qui nel bluuuu...

    Ninna nanna marinare
    Tu si bell comme o' mare
    A vote calm, senza creste
    A vote tutta na' tempesta

    Ma tu suonn d'ate cose
    E chissa se t'arricuord
    Che tra a luna e mieze e stelle
    Io t'aspette a braccia aperte

    Quann aggia' spetta
    D'averti questa sera
    Co'sta luna quiena?
    Quann aggia ' sogna'
    Di dirti quanto t'amo
    Co' stu' core 'man - ma tu -
    sogni qui nel bluuuu...

    Ninna nanna nanna nanna
    Ninna nanna nanna nanna

    Ninna nanna marinare/ lullaby of the sea
    'Ngopp a varca, miezo o mare/ on the boat, in the middle of the sea
    Io te parl e nun respunn/ I speak but you don't answer
    Te si perze miez o suonn/ you're lost in your sleep

    Te vurria magna' de vas/ I'd like to cover you with kisses
    Ma ho paura e te sceta'/ but I don't want to wake you up
    Cosi' guarde da luntane/ So i just look at you
    Co' stu core innammurat/ with this heart in love

    Quann aggia' spetta/ how long do i have to wait
    D'averti questa sera/ for having you tonight
    Co'sta luna quiena?/ with this full moon light
    Quann aggia ' sogna'/ For how long do i have to dream
    Di dirti quanto t'amo/ to tell you how much i love you
    Co' stu' core 'man - ma tu -/ with this heart in my hands- but you
    sogni qui nel bluuuu.../ you dream here in the blue

    Ninna nanna marinare/ lullaby of the sea
    Tu si bell comme o' mare/ you're as beautiful as the sea
    A vote calm, senza creste/ sometimes calm, without crests
    A vote tutta na' tempesta/ sometimes tempestuous

    Ma tu suonn d'ate cose/ but you dream of something else
    E chissa se t'arricuord/ and who knows if you remember
    Che tra a luna e mieze e stelle/ that among the moon and the stars
    Io t'aspette a braccia aperte/ i wait for you with open arms

    Quann aggia' spetta/ how long do i have to wait
    D'averti questa sera/ for having you tonight
    Co'sta luna quiena?/ with this full moon light
    Quann aggia ' sogna'/ For how long do i have to dream
    Di dirti quanto t'amo/ to tell you how much i love you
    Co' stu' core 'man - ma tu -/ with this heart in my hands- but you
    sogni qui nel bluuuu.../ you dream here in the blue

    Ninna nanna nanna nanna/ lullaby, lullaby
    Ninna nanna nanna nanna / lullaby,lullaby
    "-Please tell me you're going to appeal to my humanity..."
    "-Actually, I'm planning to threaten you."

    "Well, if you'll excuse me, I have work to do. Evil plots don't just make themselves, you know!"

    Yep, it's neapolitan dialect
    "-Please tell me you're going to appeal to my humanity..."
    "-Actually, I'm planning to threaten you."
