Core ‘ngrato

Enrico Caruso

Enrico Caruso ( 25 February 1873 – 2 August 1921) was an Italian operatic tenor. He sang to great acclaim at the major opera houses of Europe and the Americas, appearing in a wide variety of roles from the Italian and French repertoires that ranged from the lyric to the dramatic. Caruso also made approximately 260 commercially released recordings from 1902 to 1920. All of these recordings, which span most of his stage career, remain available today on CDs and as downloads and digital streams.

TESTO:

Catarí’, Catarí’
pecché mm”e ddice sti pparole amare?!
Pecché mme parle e ‘o core mme turmiente Catarí’?!
Nun te scurdá ca t’aggio dato ‘o core, Catarí’
Nun te scurdá
Catarí’
Catarí’, che vène a dicere
stu pparlá ca mme dá spáseme?
Tu nun ce pienze a stu dulore mio?!
Tu nun ce pienze, tu nun te ne cure
Core, core ‘ngrato
T’hê pigliato ‘a vita mia!
Tutto è passato
e nun ce pienze cchiù.
Catarí’, Catarí’
tu nun ‘o ssaje ca fino e ‘int’a na chiesa
io só’ trasuto e aggiu pregato a Dio, Catarí’
E ll’aggio ditto pure a ‘o cunfessore: “Io stó’ a murí
pe’ chella llá
Stó’ a suffrí,
stó’ a suffrí nun se pò credere
stó’ a suffrí tutte li strazie ”
E ‘o cunfessore, ch’è perzona santa,
mm’ha ditto: “Figliu mio lássala stá, lássala stá! ”
Core, core ‘ngrato
T’hê pigliato ‘a vita mia!
Tutto è passato
e nun ce pienze cchiù.
