Nel corso
sempre avanti e indietro
stiamo a passeggiar
un giorno uguale a un altro giorno
il tempo se ne va
Sulla piazza del paese sono solo, sai chi c'è?
Michelino, che per cento lire
canta e balla il twist.
E sento ogni tanto di qualcuno che se ne va 
se ne va lontano alla grande città.

I razzi vanno sulla luna
noi restiamo qua
nel corso sempre avanti e indietro
stiamo a passeggiar
viene il sole il sole muore
viene la luna e se ne va
ma 'sta vita questa vita nostra
quando cambierà?


In the course
always back and forth
we go on walking
one day equal to another day
the time goes by
On the village square I'm alone, do you know who's here?
Michelino, who for a hundred lire
sings and dances the twist.
And I feel every now and then someone who goes
who goes away to the great city.

The rockets go to the moon
we stay here
in the course
always back and forth
we go on walking
the sun comes the sun dies
the moon comes and goes
but 'this life this our life
when will it change?
