Underground System New York, New York

Underground System came bubbling up out of BKNY in early 2010. Originally steeped in influence and inspiration credited to Fela Kuti and the West African pioneered Afrobeat aesthetic, they have since carved out a niche that stands uniquely alone as their own. ... more

Track Name: Bella Ciao
Sta matti- mattina, sta mattina appena alzata
devo andare a lavorar devo andare a lavorar!

A lavo- lavorare laggiù in risaia
laggiù in risaia
laggiù in risaia
Sotto il sol

E tra gli insetti e le zanzare
duro lavoro mi tocca, mi tocca, mi tocca
TOCCA, TOCCA
mi tocca far

Il capo in piedi col suo bastone,
E noi curve a lavorar
lavo Rar rar rar!

Bella ciao ciao, bella ciao ciao, Bella ciao
(4x)

Lavoro infame,
infame per pochi soldi,
E tua vita a consumar
tua vita a consumar

Ma verrà il giorno che tutte quante
Lavoreremo,
lavoreremo in libertà

Bella ciao ciao
BELLA CIAO CIAO
Bella ciao
(4x)

(Break)

Stamattina, Stamattina, mi sono alzata
Stamattina, Stamattina, mi sono alzata
E ho trovato l'invasor
ho trovato l'invasor

O PARTIGIANOOO O PARTIGIANOOO
portami via
O PARTIGIANOOO O PARTIGIANOOO
portami via
Che mi sento di morir (2x)


In the morning, in the morning upon awaking
I have to go off to work, I have to go off to work

To work down there in the rice fields,
down there in the rice fields,
down there in the rice fields
under the beating sun

And between the insects and mosquitoes,
hard work, I must, I must
I MUST, I MUST
I must perform

The boss standing tall with his club
while we are bent at our hard work
Work Work Work Work!

Beautiful good bye, Beautiful bye bye,
Beautiful good bye (4x)

I work a dreadful job,
for very little money
That wastes my life
That wastes my life

But the day will come when we all
will work,
will work in liberty

Beautiful good bye, goodbye
BEAUTIFUL BYE! BYE!
Beautiful good bye
(4x)

(break)

This morning, morning, I woke this morning,
This morning, morning, I woke this morning, And found oppression still exists,
oppression still exists

OH FREEDOM FIGHTER, OH FREEDOM FIGHTER Take me away
OH FREEDOM FIGHTER, OH FREEDOM FIGHTER
Take me away
because I feel I’m dying here (2x)


E se io muoio, E se io muoio, da partigiano
E se io muoio, E se io muoio, da partigiano
Tu mi devi seppellir (2x)

E SEPPELLIRE E SEPPELLIRE
lassù in montagna,
E SEPPELLIRE E SEPPELLIRE
lassù in montagna,
Sotto l'ombra di un bel fior. (2x)

E tutti quelli, E tutti quelli
che passeranno
E tutti quelli, E tutti quelli
che passeranno
Mi diranno o che bel fior (2x)

È QUESTO IL FIORE, È QUESTO IL FIORE
Da partigiano
È QUESTO IL FIORE, È QUESTO IL FIORE
Da partigiano
Morto per la libertà.

(Horns)

E tutti quelli, E tutti quelli
che passeranno
E tutti quelli, E tutti quelli
che passeranno
Mi diranno che bel fior (3x)
MI DIRANNO CHE BEL FIOR
Mi diranno che bel fior (3x)
MI DIRANNO CHE BEL FIOR

È questo e il fiore, È questo e il fiore
Da partigiano
È questo e il fiore, È questo e il fiore
Da partigiano
Morto per la libertà (3x)
MORTO PER LA LIBERTÀ
Morto per la libertà (3x)
MORTO PER LA LIBERTÀ

LIBERTÀ (tag)
And if I die, And if I die, a freedom fighter,
And if I die, And if I die, a freedom fighter,
Then you must bury me (2x)

AND BURY ME, AND BURY ME
Up in the mountain,
AND BURY ME, AND BURY ME
up in the mountain,
Under the shade of a beautiful flower. (2x)

And all the people, and all the people
who will pass by
And all the people, and all the people
who will pass by
Will say “What beautiful flower!”

THIS IS THE BLOSSOM, THIS IS THE BLOSSOM
of those that died here
THIS IS THE BLOSSOM, THIS IS THE BLOSSOM
of those that died here
For liberty



And all the people, and all the people
who will pass by
And all the people, and all the people
who will pass by
Will say “What beautiful flower!” (3x)
WILL SAY “WHAT BEAUTIFUL FLOWER!”
Will say “What beautiful flower!” (3x)
WILL SAY “WHAT BEAUTIFUL FLOWER!”

THIS IS THE BLOSSOM, THIS IS THE BLOSSOM
of those that died here
THIS IS THE BLOSSOM, THIS IS THE BLOSSOM
of those that died here
Died for liberty (3x)
DIED FOR LIBERTY
Died for liberty (3x)
DIED FOR LIBERTY

LIBERTY (tag)
