Fabrizio De André

Fabrizio Cristiano De André (18 February 1940 - 11 January 1999) was an Italian singer-songwriter. Known for his sympathies towards anarchism, libertarism and pacifism, his songs often featured marginalized and rebellious people, gypsies, prostitutes and knaves, and attacked the Catholic Church hierarchy hypocrisies. Artistically active for almost 40 years and the author of thirteen studio albums, he is renowned for the quality of his lyrics and often considered a poet. He contributed to the valorization of the languages of Italy, most notably Ligurian and, to a lesser extent, Sardinian, Gallurese and Neapolitan. Following his early death several streets, places, parks, schools and public libraries were named after him. more »

S'i' fosse foco, arderei 'l mondo
S'i' fosse vento, lo tempesterei
S'i' fosse acqua, ì' l'annegherei
S'i' fosse Dio, mandereil 'en profondo

S'i' fosse papa, sarè allor giocondo
Che tutt'i cristiani imbrigherei
S'i' fosse 'mperator, sa che farei?
A tutti mozzerei lo capo a tondo

S'i' fosse morte, andarei da mio padre
S'i' fosse vita, fuggirei da lui
Similmente faria da mi' madre

S'i' fosse Cecco, come sono e fui
Torrei le donne giovani e leggiadre
E vecchie e laide lassarei altrui
