Just Jot January – 2020 – Song Lyric Sunday Edition

It is not my “intention” to give everyone a lesson in Italian today but the prompt for #SLS is “La” and I found this song sung by Connie Francis that I really like.  I can remember listening to her when I was young and I have a few of her songs in my iTunes collection so every once in a while those memories come back.

According to Wikipedia, the English translation of Al di la is “Beyond.”  I like that word.  Connie Francis changed the English lyrics of the song a bit when she sang it.

Lyrics
La la la la la
Al di lб del bene
Piщ prezioso, ci sei tu
Al di lб del sogno
Piщ ambizioso, ci sei tu
Al di lб delle cose piщ belle
Al di lб delle stelle, ci sei tu
Al di lб, ci sei tu per me
Per me, soltanto per me
Al di la means you are
Far above me, very far
Every star will light
The way above me
To where you are
Just to measure your worth
I’d move heaven and earth
To be near you
You’re my life
You’re my love
You’re my own al di lб
La la la la la
Al di lб della volta infinita
Al di la della vita, ci sei tu
Al di lб ci sei tu per me
La la la la la

Lyrics – Jerry Vale sang it this way
Al di la means you are far above me, very far
Al di la, as distant as the lovely evening star
Where you walk flowers bloom
When you smile all the gloom turns to sunshine
And my heart opens wide
When you’re gone it fades inside and seems to have died
Al di la, I wondered as I drifted where you were
Al di la, the fog around me lifted, there you were
In the kiss that I gave was the love I had saved for a lifetime
Then I knew all of you was completely mine.
