About I Have But One Heart

"I Have But One Heart" is a popular song composed by Johnny Farrow, with lyrics by Marty Symes. The song was published in 1945. The recording by Vic Damone, his first release, reached #7 on the Billboard chart in 1947 and the recording by Frank Sinatra also charted, reaching the No. 13 position. The song was sung by the character Johnny Fontane played by Al Martino in the film, The Godfather, during Connie's wedding, and was on the soundtrack album to the film. The song is adapted from the traditional Neapolitan song "O Marenariello. " Sergio Franchi used this song, both alone and in a medley with Speak Softly Love from The Godfather. His recorded versions include 20 Magnificent Songs (DynaHouse, 1976), and From My Private Collection - Con Amore (Gold Records, 1976). The song has been recorded by others such as Dean Martin, Jerry Vale and Joni James. It was recorded in 2008 by Australian singer Alfio for his album Classic Rewinds which pays tribute to Vic Damone, Al Martino and 13 other popular Italian-American singers.

I have but one heart, this heart I bring you,
I have but one heart to share with you,
I have but one dream that I can cling to,
You are the one dream I pray comes true.
My darling, until I saw you, I never felt this way,
And nobody else before you, ever has heard me say,
You are my one love, my life I live for you,
I have but one heart to give to you.

Dicimo o mari, facimu l'amore,
A curi a curi che ci passa,
Ca u mare parla e na' carezza,
Ma a tia la brezza, fina murir.
You are my one love, my love I live for you,
I have but one heart to give to you.

Let us tell the sea that we are making love,
Heart to heart till the end of time,
Because the sea whispers and caresses us,
So does the breeze till the time we die.
