FIGGHIU MIU

Figghiu miu ascuta attentu
Nzoccu ti dici to matri a stu mumentu
Troppi cosi mallantrini chi facemu lomini
Consumano la fonti di lacqua viva
Ma ora dormi nun ci pinsari
ca quannu crisci nun ti lascurdari
E iu ti cantu di la matri terra
Di li muntagli, di li ciuri e lerba
Pogni arbulicchiu chi veni tagghiatu
Idda lu chianci comun figghiu scannatu
Cu fu ca tammazzau figghiu duci duci
Fu nu fratuzzu to ca persi li radici
Sopra scuncizzi ammassamu cimentu
Viulintamu i so sigrita a fariccinni vantu
Ma si la matri po perdi la pacenza
Vintra, mani e vuci scatena cu viulenza
Ma ora dormi nun ci pinsari
ca quannu crisci nun ti lascurdari
canta lu mari un cantu di duluri
ca logghiu lordu caffuca li coluri
siddu nni scurdamu ca gghiè cosampurtanti
cu lunna crisci, addiventa nu giganti
Ma ora dormi nun ci pinsari
ca quannu crisci nun ti lascurdari
tu si ancora forti e nicu comu nomu anticu
nun ti scurdari
ca lu ventu parra e canta a cu sapi ascutari
ca lamuri veni a tia si tu stissu si amuri dormi figghiu beddu

MY SON

My son listen carefully
what your mother tells you in this moment
too many bad things we the men do
that consume the spring of living water

but now sleep on dont think about it
when you grow up you dont forget it

and i sing of mother heart
of mountains, flowers and grass
for each tree that is cutten down
she cryes it like a murdered son

who killed you sweet sweet son
it was a brother of yours who lost the roots

among indecencies we put on cement
we rape her secrets and we are proud of it
but if the mother looses her patience
she unleash violently her womb, hands and voice

the sea sings a song of sorrow
for dirty oil drowns his colours
if we forget that its an important thing
it grows with its wave and become a giant

you are still strong and little like an ancient man
dont forget
that wind speaks and sings to him who can listen
that love came to you if you are love
