Nu juorno buono (English translation)

English translation

A good day

Luckily this morning there’s a different atmosphere
The sun with its rays shine through the window
My land is so beautiful
I miss it when I leave
I’m bringing a spare postcard with me
This place must not die
My people must not leave
My accent must be heard
The Waste Crisis
The increase of tumors
We are the land of the sun
Not the Land of Fires
 
Luckily this morning the story has changed
I see people that are smiling carefree
There exists no evil
You feel good on the street
The world has stopped
In this beautiful (splendid) day
 
It’s a good day
This morning the sun woke me up
The smell of coffee
The stereo playing songs
How much time passed since the last time I felt like this?
Everything starts because it has an end
But I'm missing nothing (I have everything I need)
This morning there’s nothing missing
I hug Lil’ Gabriele
He falls asleep on my chest
He doesn’t know about problems
He doesn’t know about these idiots
He doesn’t know that life first gives you sweet then poisons you
 
I kiss my mom
She’s already done with house works
She’s a princess in misery
She gave birth to this kid (scugnizz = neapolitan street kid)
She taught me since I was little
That a dream can be true
I’d wipe off all of your wrinkles
Caused by sad things
 
Forget having to leave for jobs
New firms will prosper in our land
Forget banks, we will lend them money
No masters, we will steal their throne
There’s no lines in the offices (how what?!)
And even though you root for another soccer team
You’re still my brother
Make love
Instead of holding that knife
Violence was always the method of those who don't have brains
 
Cut this line that splits the North from South
I’m watching the sky to look for who is not here anymore
It’s also a new day for them too
And I’m sure I made you smile from up there too
 
It’s a good day
This morning the sun woke me up
The smell of coffee
The stereo playing songs
How much time passed since the last time I felt like this?
Everything starts because it has an end
But I'm missing nothing (I have everything I need)
This morning there’s nothing missing
I hug Lil’ Gabriele
He falls asleep on my chest
He doesn’t know about problems
He doesn’t know about these idiots
He doesn’t know that life first gives you sweet then poisons you
 
It's a good day..
It's a good day..
It's a good day..
It's a good day...
 
It’s a good day
This morning the sun woke me up
The smell of coffee
The stereo playing songs
How much time passed since the last time I felt like this?
Everything starts because it has an end
But I'm missing nothing (I have everything I need)
This morning there’s nothing missing
I hug Lil’ Gabriele
He falls asleep on my chest
He doesn’t know about problems
He doesn’t know about these idiots
He doesn’t know that life first gives you sweet then poisons you
 
This place must not die
My people must not leave
My accent must be heard
 
To my uncle who gets up every morning
To Gennaro who just had a baby
To all the fish-sellers, to all the fruit/vegetable-sellers
To all the people of this Rione (neapolitan district)
