Funiculì, Funiculà

Funicular : “a kind of railway in which carriages are pulled uphill by cable”

Are you ready, Kiddo?

Below is  “Funiculì, Funiculà”, performed by Luciano Pavarotti. Press “play” then follow the singing when it begins which will bring you to the English translation and added pictures. When you get to each picture, wait for the singing to continue before scrolling to the next picture and translation.

By the way, there is a music video in the mix for you to listen to afterwards.

Listen, listen, echoes sound afar!
Listen, listen, echoes sound afar!
Funiculì, funiculà, funiculì, funiculà!
Echoes sound afar, funiculì, funiculà!

 

 

Some think the world is made for fun and frolic,
And so do I! (And so do I! 😉 ) 

 

 

Some think it well to be all melancholic,
To pine and sigh; to pine and sigh . . . 

 

 

But I, I love to spend my time in singing,
Some joyous song, some joyous song . . .

 

 

To set the air with music bravely ringing
Is far from wrong! Is far from wrong!

 

 

Listen, listen, echoes sound afar!
Listen, listen, echoes sound afar!

 

Funiculì, funiculà, funiculì, funiculà!
Echoes sound afar, funiculì, funiculà!

 

 

 

Listen, listen, echoes sound afar!
Listen, listen, echoes sound afar!
Funiculì, funiculà, funiculì, funiculà!
Echoes sound afar, funiculì, funiculà!

 

 

 

Ah me! ’tis strange that some should take to sighing,
And like it well! And like it well!

 

For me, I have not thought it worth the trying,
So cannot tell! 

So cannot tell!

 

 

With laugh, with dance and song the day soon passes
Full soon is gone, full soon is gone,

 

 

 

For mirth was made for joyous lads and lasses
To call their own! To call their own!

 

Listen, listen, echoes sound afar!

Listen, listen, echoes sound afar!

Funiculì, funiculà, funiculì, funiculà!

Echoes sound afar, funiculì, funiculà!

 

Listen, listen, echoes sound afar!

Listen, listen, echoes sound afar!

Funiculì, funiculà, funiculì, funiculà!

 

Echoes sound afar, funiculì,

 

funiculàaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhh!

 

 

 

 

 

Thank you, Mr. Pavarotti, for that most wonderful performance.

And have a stellar weekend, Kiddo, I will be thinking of you while I work. Stay safe.

Love always, Daddio
