    Hi! Napule e, Quando,quando, Io so pazzo, does anyone know to translate these into french,
    german or greek language?
    Been thankfull. My italian is reasonable, but not good enough. Pino uses occasionally Napoli slang
    as he is from there.

    Napule mille paure Napule / Napoli is a thousand fears
    a voce de' criature / it's the children's voices
    che saglie chianu chianu e / that slowly raise
    tu sai ca nun si sulo. / and so you know you're not alone
    Napule nu sole amaro / Napoli is a bitter sun
    Napule addore 'e mare / Napoli is the smell of the sea
    Napule 'na carta sporca / Napoli is a dirty paper
    e nisciuno se ne importa e / that no one cares about
    ognuno aspetta a' ciorta. / and everyone is waiting for fortune
    Napule 'na camminata / Napoli is a walk
    inte viche miezo all'ate / in the alleys among the people
    Napule tutto 'nu suonno / Napoli is a dream
    e 'a sape tutto o' munno ma / and it's known by the whole world, but
    nun sanno a verit. / they don't know the truth

    -----------------------------------------------
    IO SO PAZZO
    Io so' pazzo, io so' pazzo / I am crazy, I am crazy
    e vogli'essere chi vogli'io / and I wanna be who i want
    ascite fora d'a casa mia / get out of my house!
    Io so' pazzo, io so' pazzo / I am crazy i am crazy
    ho il popolo che mi aspetta / the folks are waiting for me
    e scusate vado di fretta / and sorry but I'm in a hurry!
    Non mi date sempre ragione / You don't have to always say I'm right
    io lo so che sono un errore / i know I'm a mistake
    nella vita voglio vivere almeno un giorno da leone / In my life I want to live at least one day as a lion
    e lo Stato questa volta non mi deve condannare/ and this time the law must not condemn me
    pecch so' pazzo, je so' pazzo / because i am crazy i am crazy
    ed oggi voglio parlare. / and today i wanna talk.
    Io so' pazzo, io so' pazzo / i am crazy, i am crazy
    si se 'ntosta 'a nervatura / if i get very angry
    metto 'a tutti 'nfaccia 'o muro / I'll smash everybody against the wall
    Io so' pazzo, io so' pazzo / i am crazy, i am crazy
    e chi dice che Masaniello / and who said that Masaniello
    poi negro non sia p bello? / would not be more beautiful if he was black?
    e non sono menomato / and i am not maimed
    sono pure diplomato / i am even graduated
    e la faccia nera l'ho dipinta per essere notato / and i painted my face black only to get myself noticed
    Masaniello crisciuto / Masaniello has grown up
    Masaniello turnato / Masaniello is back
    Io so' pazzo, io so' pazzo / i am crazy, i am crazy
    nun ce scassate 'o cazzo!/ don't bug me!/ leave me alone! (it's a bit more vulgar in italian)

    "-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!"
