Mike Patton - Scalinatella Lyrics

Addó' sta chella

Nun spónta ancora...
Pe' 'sta viarèlla

Addó' mme ne vogl'í, to ddico...e crídeme...
Addó' se ne pò ghí chi è stanco 'e chiágnere?!

Saglie ‘ncielo
O scinne a mare
Pòrtame a chella

Chella s'è 'nnammurata 'e nu pittore
Ca pitta Capre e parla furastiero...
E i' porto 'mpiétto nu dulore 'e core
E sento che mm'accide stu penziero!

Addó' sta chella

Nun spónta ancora...
Pe' 'sta viarèlla

Addó' mme ne vogl'í, to ddico...e crídeme...
Addó' se ne pò ghí chi è stanco 'e chiágnere?!

Saglie ‘ncielo
O scinne a mare
Pòrtame a chella

A ghiuorne a ghiuorne parte nu vapore...
A ghiuorne 'ammore mio se vótta a mare!

Mike Patton Scalinatella Comments
  1. Matt H

    Let’s see that no talent hack Anthony Kiedis do this.

    Brandon Wasgatt

    Why does every Patton video have comments about Kiedis or RHCP. Literally nobody thinks Kiedis is a more talented singer, I have never heard that opinion in my life. What're you so defensive about?

    Matt H

    Brandon Wasgatt, It harkens to Kiedis’ comments years ago about him saying “he thought he was looking in a mirror” backhandedly suggesting he was trying to copycat him. The aftermath of comments you read are a result of us thinking Keidis should have made it more of a genuine compliment considering Patton is, in fact more talented, and he should have at least humbly acknowledged, in the very least, that “imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.” but instead, his comment was rooted in competitive based ego and insecurity making him have to eat crow after all these years.

  2. Danilo Cucurullo

    So sorry he can't get the Naples language's accent... :(

  3. John John

    God this is sexy as hell

  4. Paolo Schiattarella

  27. jorge15359

    Esa se enamoró de un pintor
    que pinta Capri y habla en forastero
    y yo llevo en el pecho un dolor de corazòn
    y siento que me mata este pensamiento

    En unos días, en unos dias parte un vapor
    En unos dìas mi amor se tira al mar

  34. theenigmajjames

    @thepronocup we can do without all the rosetta stone translations buddy ...thanks for comin' out though

  35. thepronocup

    ENGLISH 2 out of 2
    She's fallen in love with a painter
    who paints Capri a talks a foreign language
    and I got my chest the ache of my heart
    and I feel this though is killing me


    In some days (from now) a ship will leave
    In some days (from now) my love will drown at sea

  36. thepronocup

    ENGLISH 1 out of 2
    Small stairway , long, long, long and narrow, narrow
    where's my little love?
    I still can't hear the zoc (sound of the sabot shoe),
    litlle sabot, little sabot along this tiny, rambling road.
    Where I want to escape, this I'll tell you and believe me.
    Where can somebody go if tired of crying?
    Little stairway that climb* up to the sky or go* down to the sea,
    search her for me, find her for me, bring that brat girl to me.

    *[he's talking to the stairway, hence the second person]

  37. thepronocup

    ITALIAN 2 out of 2

    Quella si è innamorata di un pittore
    che dipinge Capri e parla straniero,
    ed io ho nel petto un dolore di cuore
    e sento che mi uccide questo pensiero.


    Fra giorni, fra giorni parte una nave.
    Fra giorni il mio amore si getta in mare.

  38. thepronocup

    ITALIAN 1 out of 2
    lunga, lunga, lunga, lunga,
    strettina, strettina,
    dove è quella innamoratina?

    Non si sente ancora,
    il zoc, zoc, zoc, zoc,
    zoccoletto, zoccoletto,
    per questa stradina sconnessa.

    Dove me ne voglio andare,
    te lo dico, e credimi.
    Dove se ne può andare
    chi è stanco di piangere?

    sali in cielo o scendi al mare,
    cercamela, trovamela,
    portami quella sciaguratella.

    ca pitta Capre e parla furastiero,
    e i' porto 'mpiétto nu dulore 'e core

    A ghiuorne, a ghiuorne parte nu vapore.
    A ghiuorne 'ammore mio se vótta a mare.

    Addó' mme ne vogl'í
    t''o ddico, e crídeme.
    Addó' se ne pò ghí
    chi è stanco 'e chiágnere?

    saglie 'ncielo o scinne a mmare,
    cercammélla, trovammélla,
    pòrtame a chella sciaguratèlla.

  41. LesfleursdumalSofia

    Little stairway, long and tight: where is my little lover?
    I can't see her yet with little clogs, on this ruined little lane.Where I wanna go I'll tell you, believe me, where you can go when you're tired of living??
    Little stairway up to the sky or down to the sea, search and find her for me, bring her to me, wretched! She fell in love with a painter, which draws goats and speaks foreigner; I carry this pain in my heart and I feel like dying!
    And so on..:)

  56. Professicchio

    @krakatica114 As in the best Neapolitan tradition it's a sad, gentle and haunting love song.
    It's basically a first person account of someone looking for his lost beloved one through the streets of Naples ('Scalinatella' means narrow, stairway-like street , typical of the old town)

  57. krakatica114

    Does anybody know what is he singing about ?

  58. felouz

    @0o0ramon0o0 Mike explodes him. nothing to compare

  64. DisGuido
