Tekst en muziek: Nico Brandsen, Erik van der Hoff en André van der Hoff
(1987)






Hey, ragazzo!
Hey bello!
Hey, hey Roberto!



Once upon a time I took a little trip to Rome
I went to spend my summer there, because I felt at home
Everyone I met was gentle, everyone was nice
Sun was burning in my hair, I didn’t need advice



And I was swimming and I was dancing in the street
Everyone was talking with that Italian beat, oh
Though I didn’t understand a word of what they said
I could always answer with these words that I once read



Arrivederci
Non capisco
Arrivederci
Non capisco



Then I met this girl, she was sitting in a bar
Drinking cappuccino, she said: “Ti bati bailar?”
All that I could say was: “Si, ti amo, mi amor”
Then she hit me in the face and walked out of the door



Arrivederci
Non capisco
No, no, no, no, non capisco
Arrivederci
Non capisco



Hey bello, ti bati bailar?
Bale



Daba
Padaba daba daba...



Now I’m in this bookshop: “Quanto costa, per favore?”
I’d like to learn Italian: “Cinque milla, si, señor”
I know it isn’t easy for a stranger in the land
When your only answer is: “I don’t understand!”



Arrivederci
Non capisco
No, no, no, no, capisco
Arrivederci
Non capisco



Arrivederci
Hey, Roberto!
Non capisco
Non capisco
Arrivederci
I saw you on televizione
Non capisco



Arrivederci
Very beautiful Italian girl, mmm
Non capisco
I know you love Italian girl
You are Roberto Jacketti
Arrivederci
Non capisco
