About Come Prima

"Come prima" (English: As Before) is an Italian song, with lyrics by Mario Panzeri and music by Vincenzo Di Paola and Sandro Taccani. The first and most popular version in Italy was by Tony Dallara (Antonio Lardera) in 1957. A recording by the Marino Marini Quartet made the United Kingdom charts in 1958. That same year, the song was also recorded by Domenico Modugno, Nicola Arigliano and Armando Trovajoli's orchestra with singer Miranda Martino. "Come prima" was Tony Dallara's first and breakthrough single. Although it was rejected for admission to the Sanremo Festival, it was an instant success and sold 300,000 copies, becoming the biggest selling single in Italy up to that point. The melody was used for a French language song entitled "Tu me donnes", a hit for Dalida in 1959. It was also used for an English language song, "More Than Ever" (lyrics by Mary Bond), recorded in the United Kingdom by Malcolm Vaughan with the Michael Sammes Singers (HMV catalogue number POP 538) (14 weeks on the UK chart, peaking at #5), Robert Earl (4 weeks on the UK chart, peaking at #26), Eve Boswell, and others. Another English language lyric by Buck Ram, under the title "For the First Time", was recorded in the United States by Polly Bergen in 1958 (Columbia Records catalog number 41275). This version was also performed by Mario Lanza in his last film, For the First Time (1959).

Come prima tu me donnes
Tant de joie
Que personne ne m'en donne
Comme toi
C'est ta bouche qui m'apporte
Ma joie de vivre
Et ma chance c'est de vivre
Rien que pour toi
Que m'importe si tu m'aimes
Moins que moi
Moi je t'aime comme on n'aime
Qu'une fois
Et je reste prisonnière
Prisonnière de tes bras
Come prima tu me donnes
Tant de joie!

Tu trouves mon chéri quand on est ensemble
Que rien ne semble m'intéresser
Comment prêter aux gens la moindre importance
Quand je ne pense qu'à t'embrasser

Come prima tu me donnes
Tant de joie
Que personne ne m'en donne
Comme toi
C'est ta bouche qui m'apporte
Ma joie de vivre
Et ma chance c'est de vivre
Rien que pour toi
Come prima tu me donnes
Tant d'amour
Que j'espère te le rendre
Quand heureuse dans tes bras
Je me donne je me donne
Toute à toi!
Je me donne je me donne
Toute à toi!
