Lyrics

Partirono le rondini dal mio paese
freddo e senza sole,
cercando primavere di viole,
nidi d’amore e di felicita.
La mia piccola rondine parti
senza lasciarmi un bacio,
senza un addio parti.

Non ti scordar di me:
la vita mia legata e a te.
Io t’amo sempre piu,
nel sogno mio rimani tu.
Non ti scordar di me:
la vita mia legata e a te.
C’e sempre un nido nel mio cor per te.
Non ti scordar di me!

Non ti scordar di me!

The swallows left
From my cold and sunless country,
Searching for Springs full of violets
And lovely and happy nests.

My little swallow left
Without leaving me a kiss
She left without a goodbye

Don’t forget about me:
My life is tied to you
I love you more and more
In my dream you stay

Don’t forget about me
My life is tied to you
There’s always a nest
In my heart for you

Don’t forget about me!
