Cecco Angiolieri – Dante Allaghier, Cecco, tu’ serv’ amico

Dante Allaghier, Cecco, tu’ serv’ amico,
si raccomand’ a tte com’ a segnore;
e sì tti prego per lo dio d’Amore,
il qual è stat’ un tu’ signor antico,
che mmi perdoni s’i’ spiacer ti dico,
ché mmi dà sicurtà ‘l tu’ gentil cuore:
quel ch’i’ vo’ dire è di questo tenore,
ch’al tu’ sonetto in parte contradico.
Ch’al meo parer nell’una muta dice
che non intendi su’ sottil parlare,
di que’ che vide la tua Beatrice;
e puoi hai detto a le tue donne care
che be llo ‘ntendi: e dunque contradice
a ssé medesmo questo tu’ trovare.

Puff Daddy / Faith Evans / 112 – I’ll Be Missing You (1998)

Come tutti sappiamo, questa è una cover di “The Police – I’ll be watching you” del 1983.
Carino il motivetto? E’ in realtà stato “preso” da una composizione di Johann Sebastian Bach, proprio lui, il MITICO Bach, maestro di Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (che lo amava – musicalmente). Ecco il perché di tanto successo. Ma Sting non si è ispirato a Bach solo in questa canzone, ce ne sono tante altre 🙂 – e come dargli torto…

Every day I wake up
I hope I’m dreaming
I can’t believe this shit
Cant believe you ain’t here
Sometimes it’s just hard for a nigga to wake up
Its hard to just keep going
Its like I feel empty inside without you being here
I would do anything man, to bring you back
Id give all this shit, shit the whole knot
I saw your son today
He look just like you
You was the greatest
You’ll always be the greatest
I miss you big
Cant wait till that day, when I see your face again
I can’t wait till that day, when I see your face again…

Yeah… this right here (tell me why)
Goes out, to everyone, that has lost someone
That they truly loved (cmon, check it out)

Verse one: puff daddy

Seems like yesterday we used to rock the show
I laced the track, you locked the flow
So far from hanging on the block for dough
Notorious, they got to know that
Life ain’t always what it seem to be (uh-uh)
Words can’t express what you mean to me
Even though you’re gone, we still a team
Through your family, I’ll fulfill your dream (that’s right)
In the future, can’t wait to see
If you open up the gates for me
Reminisce some time, the night they took my friend (uh-huh)
Try to black it out, but it plays again
When it’s real, feelings hard to conceal
Cant imagine all the pain I feel
Give anything to hear half your breath (half your breath)
I know you still living your life, after death

Chorus: faith evans

Every step I take, every move I make
Every single day, every time I pray
Ill be missing you
Thinking of the day, when you went away
What a life to take, what a bond to break
Ill be missing you

[puff] I miss you big

Verse two: puff daddy

Its kinda hard with you not around (yeah)
Know you in heaven smiling down (eheh)
Watching us while we pray for you
Every day we pray for you
Till the day we meet again
In my heart is where I’ll keep you friend
Memories give me the strength I need (uh-huh) to proceed
Strength I need to believe
My thoughts big I just can’t define (cant define)
Wish I could turn back the hands of time
Us in the 6, shop for new clothes and kicks
You and me taking flicks
Making hits, stages they receive you on
I still can’t believe you’re gone (cant believe you’re gone)
Give anything to hear half your breath (half your breath)
I know you still living you’re life, after death

Chorus

[faith evans] somebody tell me why

Interlude: faith evans

On that morning
When this life is over
I know
Ill see your face

Outro: 112

Every night I pray, every step I take
Every move I make, every single day
Every night I pray, every step I take
[puff] every day that passes
Every move I make, every single day
[puff] is a day that I get closer
[puff] to seeing you again
Every night I pray, every step I take
[puff] we miss you big… and we wont stop
Every move I make, every single day
[puff] cause we can’t stop… that’s right
Every night I pray, every step I take
Every move I make, every single day
[puff] we miss you big

Cecco Angiolieri – Tre cose solamente m’ènno in grado

Tre cose solamente m’ènno in grado,
le quali posso non ben ben fornire,
cioè la donna, la taverna e ‘l dado:
queste mi fanno ‘l cuor lieto sentire.
Ma sì mme le convene usar di rado,
ché la mie borsa mi mett’ al mentire;
e quando mi sovien, tutto mi sbrado,
ch’i’ perdo per moneta ‘l mie disire.
E dico: ” Dato li sia d’una lancia! “,
ciò a mi’ padre, che mmi tien sì magro,
che tornare’ senza logro di Francia.
Ché fora a torli un dinar più agro,
la man di Pasqua che ssi dà la mancia,
che far pigliar la gru ad un bozzagro.

Nicki Minaj – Fly (Feat. Rihanna)

[Chorus: Rihanna]
I came to win, to fight, to conquer, to thrive
I came to win, to survive, to prosper, to rise
To fly
To fly

[Verse 1: Nicki Minaj]
I wish today it will rain all day
Maybe that will kinda make the pain go away
Trying to forgive you for abandoning me
Praying but I think I’m still an angel away
Angel away, yeah strange in a way
Maybe that is why I chase strangers away
They got their guns out aiming at me
But I become near when they aiming at me
Me, me, me against them
Me against enemies, me against friends
Somehow they both seem to become one
A sea full of sharks and they all see blood
They start coming and I start rising
Must be surprising, I’m just summising
Win, thrive, soar, higher, higher, higher
More fire

[Chorus: Rihanna]
I came to win, to fight, to conquer, to thrive
I came to win, to survive, to prosper, to rise
To fly
To fly

[Verse 2: Nicki Minaj]
Everybody wanna try to box me in
Suffocating everytime it locks me in
Paint they own pictures than they crop me in
But I will remain where the top begins
Cause I am not a word, I am not a line
I am not a girl that can every be defined

I am not fly, I am levitation
I represent an entire generation
I hear the criticism loud and clear
That is how I know that the time is near
So we become alive in a time of fear
And I ain’t got no motherfucking time to spare
Cry my eyes out for days upon days
Such a heavy burden placed upon me
But when you go hard your nay’s become yay’s
Yankee Stadium with Jay’s and Kanye’s

[Chorus: Rihanna]
I came to win, to fight, to conquer, to thrive
I came to win, to survive, to prosper, to rise
To fly
To fly

[Bridge: Nicki Minaj]
Get ready for it
Get ready for it
Get ready for it
I came to win
Get ready for it
Get ready for it
I came to win

[Chorus: Rihanna]
I came to win, to fight, to conquer, to thrive
I came to win, to survive, to prosper, to rise
To fly
To fly
