Lyrics
Rotola rotola rotola
strada facendo rotola
rimbalza qua e là
rotola rotola rotola
come il mio amore inutile
dove mai finirà.

Tratta il mio cuore così come fosse un barattolo
lo fa girare qua e là
senza nessuna pietà
forse neppure lo sa perché lo fa.

Rotola rotola rotola
strada facendo rotola
gira rimbalza e rotola
come il mio amore inutile
dove mai finirà.

Tratta il mio cuore così come fosse un barattolo
lo fa girare qua e là
senza nessuna pietà
forse neppure lo sa perché lo fa.

Rotola rotola rotola
strada facendo rotola
gira rimbalza e rotola
come il mio amore inutile
dove mai finirà
dove mai finirà
dove mai finirà
dove mai finirà.

Rolls rolls rolls
rolls along the way
bouncing here and there
rolls rolls rolls
like my useless love
where ever will it end.

She treats my heart so like if it was a jar
she makes it turn here and there
without any mercy
perhaps not even she knows why she does it.

Rolls rolls rolls
rolls along the way
turns bounces and rolls
like my useless love
where ever will it end.

She treats my heart so like if it was a jar
she makes it turn here and there
without any mercy
perhaps not even she knows why she does it.

Rolls rolls rolls
rolls along the way
turns bounces and rolls
like my useless love
where ever will it end
where ever will it end
where ever will it end
where ever will it end?
