Lyrics
Chi mai, chi mi dara
quello che ti davo?
Un amore cosi puro...
Dimmi, chi?

Chi mai, chi t'amera
come ti amo?
Solo io, solo io, solo io t'amo...
E solo io, solo io, solo io ti do
Si. Solo io, solo io, solo io... Chi?

Chi mai, chi ti dara
quello che ti davo?
Un amore cosi puro...
Dimmi: chi?

Chi mai, chi t'amera
come ti amo?
Solo io, solo io, solo io t'amo...
E solo io, solo io, solo io ti do
Si. Solo io, solo io, solo io... Chi?
Chi? Chi mai? Chi?
Idiota!
