Arriverderci Roma
Connie Francis Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Arrivederci Roma,
Goodbye, goodbye to Rome

City of a million moonlit places,
City of a million warm embraces,
Where I found the one of all the faces,
Far from home!
Arrivederci Roma,
It's time for us to part,

Save the wedding bells for my returning,
Keep my lover's arms outstretched and yearning,
Please be sure the flame of love keeps burning,
In her heart!

City of a million moonlit places,
City of a million warm embraces,
Where I found the one of all the faces,
Far from home!

Arrivederci Roma,
It's time for us to part,

Save the wedding bells for my returning,
Keep my lover's arms outstretched and yearning,
Please be sure the flame of love keeps burning,
In her heart!





Arrivederci Roma,
Roma, Roma, Roma
