Perry Como – lyrics
The moonlight reflected the mediterranean splendour,The silvery sand was a magical carpet of white,We shared with each other our kisses and willing surrender,And promised each other that we would remember that night.Then we had to part broken hearted,You gave me a shell as we parted . . .You told me to listen,For it had a message for me.Pretty shell that we found by the sea,Souvenir d’italie!Pretty shell that I took home with me,Souvenir d’italie!Even though we are so far apart,Still the shell speaks to me,And a voice that is yours,Calls me back to your shores,Voice of love . . .Souvenir d’italie!< instrumental verse >Ma perchй non mi fai piъ dormireSolo tu, me lo puoi dire.Te ne sei andata cosнE mi lasci partire,Souvenir, souvenir d’italie!
