O Sole Mio Song Lyrics


Ma n'atu sole cchiù bello ohine
Ô sole mio stanfronte a te
Ô sole, ô sole mio
Stanfronte a te stanfronte a te

Che bella cosa 'na iurnata 'e sole
N'aria serena doppo 'na tempesta
Pe' ll' aria fresca pare già' na festa
Che bella cosa 'na iurnata 'e sole

Ma n'atu sole cchiù bello ohine
Ô sole mio stanfronte a te
Ô sole, ô sole mio
Stanfronte a te stanfronte a te

Quanno fa note e' o sole se ne scenne
Mme vene quase 'na malincunia
Sotto 'a fenesta toia restarria
Quanno fa notte e' o sole se ne scenne

Ma n'atu sole cchiù bello ohine
Ô sole mio stanfronte a te
Ô sole, ô sole mio
Stanfronte a te tanfronte a te

Artist Info:


"O Sole Mio" is a world-famous Neapolitan song, dated 1898, with music composed by Eduardo di Capua and Alfredo Mazzucchi. It was written by Giovanni Capurro. This song has been an anthem of the glorious Italian music and its culture, often associated with the warmth and beauty of the shining sun of Italy. The melody is extremely catchy and has been converted and adapted for performance even by artists outside of Italy. The song illustrates not only the Italian fondness for lyrical beauty but also a deep connectitude in the musical tradition.

Annotations and Meaning:


"O Sole Mio" roughly translates to "My Sunshine," and it poetically describes the beauty of the sunny day and the sun acting as a metaphor for love and warmth. The lyrics, "Che bella cosa 'na iurnata 'e sole" (What a beautiful thing a sunny day), set a tone of appreciation for nature's beauty and its impact on human emotions. The recurring lines, "Ô sole mio stanfronte a te" (my sun is shining in front of you), emphasize a personal connection to the warmth and light of the sun, suggesting a deep emotional or romantic significance. The song also touches on themes of longing and melancholy, especially in the verses describing the sunset, "Quanno fa notte e' o sole se ne scenne" (When it becomes night and the sun goes down), which contrasts the sun's brightness with the onset of night, bringing a sense of sadness.
This duality enhances the song's emotive power, capturing the highs and lows experienced in the narrator’s life.
