Paolo Conte – Frisco lyrics

Ah, Babilonia, Ninive,
Memphis e Luxor... Guardale...
Polvere d'oro al sole calante...
Le semiramidi urlano
Contro il soffitto lirico
E vanno a stormi sopra le onde...

Frisco, svogliata e viziosa...
Frisco, pietra pomice, tapis roulant...
Frisco, sei chic e ambiziosa
Come un sof? Di cretonne...

N? Babilonia, Ninive
Memphis o Luxor valgono
Frisco l'etrusca, al sole viaggiante...

Ah, Babilonia, Ninive,
Memphis e Luxor, guardale:
Polvere nera al sole diamante!
