Here is a video of Taddeo Scalici performing the popular Italian song called Azzurro by Celentano.  Below the video are the lyrics.

Cerco l'estate tutto l'anno
I look for summer all year long

E all'improvviso eccola qua
and all of a sudden, here it is.

E lei e partita per le spiagge
She left for the beach

E sono solo quassu in citta
and I'm alone, up here, in the city

Sento fischiare sopra i tetti
I hear whistling above the roofs

Un aeroplano che se ne va
an airplane that is leaving.



il pomeriggio e' troppo azzurro < Video starts here
the afternoon is too blue

E lungo per me, mi accorgo
Too long for me, I realize

Di non avere piu risorse
I don't have more resources

Senza di te, e allora
Without you, and so

Io quasi quasi prendo il treno
I'm about to take the train

E vengo, vengo da te
And come, come to you

Ma il treno dei desideri
But the train of desires

Nei miei pensieri all'incontrario va
In my thoughts goes the other way

End of Chorus

Penso quand'ero all'oratorio
Thinking when I was at the oratory

Con tanto sole, tant' anni fa
With so much sun, many years ago

Quelle domeniche da solo
Those Sundays by myself

In un cortile, a passeggiar
In a courtyard, taking a walk

Ora mi annoio piu di allora
And now I get more annoyed than before

Neanche un prete per passegar
With not even a priest to walk with

Repeat Chorus

Vedo un po' d'Africa in giardino
I see a little bit of Arica in the garden

Tra l'oleandro e il baobab
Between the oleander and the monkey bread

Come facevo da bambino
Like I used to as a child

Ma qui c'e' niente, per rinfrescar
But there is nothing here, (nothing) refreshing

Stanno innaffiando le tue rose
They are watering your roses

Non c'e il leone, chissa dov'e'
The lion is not here, who knows where he is

Repeat Chorus
