Funiculi, Funicula

Funiculi, Funicula

Funiculì, Funiculà is a famous Neapolitan song in the video I'd Like to Teach the World to Sing.

Lyrics

Some think the world is made for fun and frolic,
And so do I, and so do I.
Some think it's going to be so melancholic,
To pine and sigh, to pine and sigh.

But I, I love to spend my time in singing,
Some joyous songs, some joyous songs.
To set the air with music bravely ringing,
It's far from wrong, it's far from wrong.

Chorus:
Listen! Listen! Music sounds so fun!
Listen! Listen! Music sounds so fun!
Tra-la-la-la! Tra-la-la-la! Tra-la-la-la! Tra-la-la-la!
Music sounds so fun! Tra-la-la-la! Tra-la-la-la!

Some sing the world is set for freedom dancing,
But not so I, and not so I.
Some sing our eyes could keep from finally glancing,
Upon the sly, but not so I.

But all was so amazing and so charming,
Divinely sweet, divinely sweet.
And shortly, there's no time for paceful harming,
In nimble feet, in nimble feet.

Repeat Chorus

All we are feeling nice and sick of sighing,
And we like it well, we like it well.
For me, I haven't thought it's worth the trying,
They couldn't tell, they couldn't tell.

But when we laughed, 'tis from the day that passes,
But soon it's gone, but soon it's gone.
For more, 'twas made for joyous lads and lassies,
To call their own, to call their own.

Repeat Chorus

But I, I love to spend my time in singing,
Some joyous songs, some joyous songs.
To set the air with music bravely ringing,
It's far from wrong, it's far from wrong.

Repeat Chorus

Music sounds so fun! Tra-la-la-la-laaaa-laaaa-laaaa-laaaaaaaaaaaaaa!
