Original


Lassų, in un ripostiglio polveroso,
fra mille cose che non servon pių,
ho visto, un poco logoro e deluso,
un caro amico della gioventų.

Qualche filo d'erba,
col fango disseccato
tra i chiodi ancor pareva conservar,
era uno scarpone militar.

Vecchio scarpone quanto tempo č passato
quante illusioni fai rivivere tu.
Quante canzoni sul tuo passo ho cantato
che non scordo pių.

Sopra le dune del deserto infinito,
lungo le sponde accarezzate dal mar,
per giorni e notti insieme a te ho camminato
senza riposar.

Lassų, fra le bianche cime
di nevi eterne immacolate al sol,
cogliemmo le stelle alpine
per farne un dono ad un lontan amor.

Vecchio scarpone, come un tempo lontano,
in mezzo al fango,
con la pioggia e col sol,
forse sapresti, se volesse il destino, camminare ancor.

Vecchio scarpone quanto tempo č passato
quante illusioni fai rivivere tu.
Quante canzoni sul tuo passo ho cantato
che non scordo pių.

Sopra le dune del deserto infinito,
lungo le sponde accarezzate dal mar,
per giorni e notti insieme a te ho camminato
senza riposar.

Lassų, fra le bianche cime
di nevi eterne immacolate al sol,
cogliemmo le stelle alpine
per farne un dono a un lontano amor.

Vecchio scarpone, come un tempo lontano,
in mezzo al fango,
con la pioggia e col sol,
forse sapresti, se volesse il destino, camminare ancor.

Vecchio scarpone fai rivivere tu
la mia gioventų.

Translation


Up there in a dusty closet,
Among many things, no longer wanted,
I saw a little worn out and disappointed
A dear friend of my youth.

A few blades of grass
With dried mud
Among the nails it seemed still to save.
It was a military boot.

Old boot what long time has gone
How many illusions you make relive
How many songs I sang on your step
That I don't forget any more.

Above the dunes of an endless desert
Along the banks caressed by the sea
For days and nights with you I walked
without resting.

Up there among the white peaks
of eternal snows immaculate in the sun
We picked edelweiss
To make a gift to a faraway love.

Old boot as then, long time ago
Amid the mud
In the rain or the sun,
maybe you would know If destiny wanted how to walk again.

Old boot what long time has gone
How many illusions you make relive
How many songs I sang on your step
That I don't forget any more.

Above the dunes of an endless desert
Along the banks caressed by the sea
For days and nights with you I walked
without resting.

Up there among the white peaks
of eternal snows immaculate in the sun
We picked edelweiss
To make a gift to a faraway love.

Old boot as then, long time ago
Amid the mud
In the rain or the sun
maybe you would know If destiny wanted how to walk again.

Old boot you make live again
My youth.
