[Verse 1]
Fond recollections, they are mem’ry’s trea-sures
Within my treasure chest apart from all the rest,
One recollection brings a thousand pleasures,
The mem-’ry of the day when I first met you.

[Verse 2]
Be-cause I love you, I shall always cherish
The golden past I knew so sweet because of you,
Each memory of you can not fade or perish;
In-to a life of dark-ness you brought sunshine

[Verse 1]
Che bella cosa ‘na iurnata’e sole
N’aria serena doppo ‘na tempesta!
Pe’llaria fresca pare già ‘nà festa
Che bella cosa ‘na iurnata’e sole.

Luceno e llastre d’a fenesta toia
‘na la vannara canta’e se ne vanta,
E petramente torce, spanne e canta,
Luceno e llastre d’a fenesta toa.

Just like the sunrise you came to me,
Just like the sun - rise from out the sea,
Because my road was dreary
You came one day to light my way.
Just like the way.

Ma n’atu sole cchiù bello, ohi-ne,
‘O sole mio sta nfronte a te.
‘O sole, o sole mio sta nffronte a te, sta nfrontea
Ma n’atu te!
