Volare
Gipsy Kings Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Pienso que un sueno parecido no volvera mas
Y me pintaba las manos y la cara de azul
Y me improviso el viento rapido me llevo
Y me hizo a volar en el cielo infinito

Volare, oh oh
Cantare, oh oh oh
Nel blu dipinto di blu
Felice di stare lassu

Y volando, volando feliz
Yo me encuentro mas alto
Mas alto que el sol
Y mienstras que el mundo
Se aleja despacio de mi
Una musica dulce
Se ha tocada solo para mi

Volare, oh oh
Cantare, oh oh oh
Nel blu dipinto di blu
Felice di stare lassu

Pienso que un sueno parecido no volvera mas
Y me pintaba las manos y la cara de azul
Y me improviso el viento rapido me llevo
Y me hizo a volar en el cielo infinito

Volare, oh oh
Cantare, oh oh oh
Nel blu dipinto di blu
Felice di stare lassu

Volare, oh oh
Cantare, oh oh oh
Nel blu dipinto di blu
Felice di stare lassu

Pienso que un sueno parecido no volvera mas
Y me pintaba las manos y la cara de azul
Y me improviso el viento rapido me llevo
Y me hizo a volar en el cielo infinito

Volare, oh oh
Cantare, oh oh oh
Nel blu dipinto di blu
Felice di stare lassu

Nel blu dipinto di blu
Felice di stare lassu
Nel blu dipinto di blu
Felice di stare lassu
Nel blu dipinto di blu




Felice di stare lassu
Nel blu dipinto di blu
