  • Santa Lucia
    Naples (Campania)

    Sul mare luccica
    L'astro argento,
    Placida è l'onda,
    Prospero è il vento,
    Venite all'agile
    Barchetta mia!...
    Santa Lucia!
    Santa Lucia!

    Con questo zeffiro
    Così soave,
    Oh! com'è bello
    Star su la nave!
    Su passagieri,
    Venite via!
    Santa Lucia!
    Santa Lucia!

    O dolce Napoli,
    O suol beato,
    Ove sorridere
    Volle il creato,
    Tu sei l'impero
    Del armonia!...
    Santa Lucia!
    Santa Lucia!

    Or che tardate?
    Bella è la sera,
    Spira un auretta
    Fresca e leggera,
    Venite all'agile
    Barchetta mia!...
    Santa Lucia!
    Santa Lucia!

    Brightly the silver star
    Shines o'er the ocean,
    Fair winds woo billows
    Calmly in motion,
    My bark shall fleetly glide
    Over the sea, ah!
    Santa Lucia!
    Santa Lucia!

    Borne on by willing airs
    So smoothly floating,
    Oh, what a joy when
    Yonder we're boating!
    Ho, friends! now all aboard!
    Come sail with me, ah!
    Santa Lucia!
    Santa Lucia!

    Oh charmful Napoli!
    Oh happy nation,
    Smiling fair welcome
    From thy creation!
    Thou realm of harmony,
    All hail to thee, ah!
    Santa Lucia!
    Santa Lucia!

    Why are ye waiting now?
    Eve glows in splendor
    Light airs invite ye,
    Cooling and tender
    Here in my bonny bark
    Come all with me, ah!
    Santa Lucia!
    Santa Lucia!
