An Egyptian star of Italian origin, who hypnotized her audience with elegance, grace and song.
In as much as the world loved her, she was not lucky in love and her life ended in tragedy.
She was a beautiful flower born to serve, as a Queen of hearts, leaving a quiet legacy of songs , love and her smiles.
She will live eternally in the memories of those who met her, knew and loved her, and those who have yet to discover her. A treasured icon , in a foreign world, we have yet to understand.
Chaque Nuit Quand l'oiseau de Paradis fait sa ronde J'ouvre la porte à mon amour Et tous les deux nous voyageons loin du monde En attendant le retour Des premiers rayons du soleil et de l'ombre Dans la chambre nue Où tous nos gestes sont un monde inconnu Every night when the bird of paradise make its rounds I open the door to my love and we travel far away from the world and awaiting our return are the first rays of the sun and shade where naked in our room our gestures and sentiments are unknown to the world.
Chaque nuit Nous échangeons des colliers de promesses Nous échangeons des anneaux d'or Des rivières et des diamants de jeunesse Et puis nous quittons le port Comme des rois sur des bateaux de tendresse Pour mille pays Que tu fais naître de ma main chaque nuit every night we exchange necklasses of promises we exchange golden rings, rivers and diamonds of our youth and then we leave the port like kings, on boats of tenderness, for 1000 lands you give birth from my hand each night
Et nos yeux ne trouvent pas le sommeil Comment s'endormir quand l'arbre est en feu Devant le soleil Dieu, Que je t'aime chaque nuit Que tu m'aimes chaque nuit Que la route est belle chaque nuit and our eyes do not find sleep how do you sleep when the tree is on fire in front of the sun, God, That I love you each night That you love me each night That the road is good every night Mon amour Je ne veux plus jamais voir le jour
my love I never want to see day again -----------------------------------------
Such passion from a single woman, is bound to raise a fire in many hearts. lol
Have a great day!
Maybe someday you'll come To the village I'm from Right by the bay of beautiful Napoli Where each Saturday night As the vino takes flight We sing and dance and love of life is free Giorgio plays the guitar Sandro the mandolin And me I dance and bang on the tambourine But when Gigi appears The hurrahs and the cheers Come from the crowd as he begins to sing
And in between each song They shout and sing out strong
We love you Gigi l'Amoroso The greatest Italian lover since man discovered fire Gigi l'Amoroso If you only knew what you make us do With your songs of desire For each and every one his favourite song Volare, Come Prima, Ö Sole Mio
Everyone loved Gigi, the baker's wife would leave her shop just to hear him sing, the notary's wife who was a saint blessed him and made the sign of the cross every time he opened his mouth, and the widow, the young one, tore her wigs to shreds and put on fancy lace, and on and on, everyone loved Gigi, even me, even me, but…
Came a lady one day Rich as all USA Who told him Hollywood wasn't very far Oh ! he liked what he heard And believed every word Like Valentino he'd become a star We were all at the boat With a lump in our throat To wish him well and show him how much we cared Everyone in the crowd were all openly proud He'd made it now beyond the village square
And when he said Goodbye We all began to cry
We love you Gigi l'Amoroso The greatest Italian lover since man discovered fire Gigi l'Amoroso If you only knew what you make us do With your songs of desire Arrivederci, Gigi, much success The tears you see are tears of happiness
Gigi... We stayed 'till the boat was out of sight, and we all returned to the village, but, it wasn't the same after he left Everything seemed different the baker's wife refused to light the oven the notary's wife, wouldn't even talk to her husband she just kept counting her beads and the widow, the young one, cried and went into mourning for a second time And me...
Many days have gone by Oh the years how they fly The fountain even cried we all missed him so Not a word, not a sign My heart measured the time Oh Gigi, Gigi why did you have to go ? Our performance went on But the spirit was gone Each song we sang was only a memory At the end of our show As the silence would grow Each night I'd hear his haunting melody
If you only knew What you make us do With your songs of desire Gigi...
Gigi !? Is that you in the shadow? It is you Gigi come closer! Oh let me look at you You are crying ? But why are you crying ? Oh ! l'American ! Now I understand what do they know except Rock and Roll and "Baby, Baby, Baby" That's not for you, you are Giuseppe, Fabrizio, Luca Santini and you are Napoletano ! Listen Gigi, listen... that's Giorgio playing and that, that's Sandro's mandolin wait, Gigi, wait ! I'll get my tambourine wait, you can't leave like that ! This is your home! Listen... you hear them Gigi ? The whole town is coming ! They want you to sing Gigi ! To sing for them They love you Gigi, everybody loves you Sing Gigi ! Canta ! Bravo !!! Bravo !
