Mahmood- ‘Soldi’ Lyrics (Italian)

In periferia fa molto caldo
Mamma stai tranquilla sto arrivando
Te la prenderai per un bugiardo
Ti sembrava amore era altro
Beve champagne sotto Ramadan
Alla TV danno Jackie Chan
Fuma narghilè mi chiede come va
Mi chiede come va, come, va come va
Sai già come va, come va, come va

Penso più veloce per capire
Se domani tu mi fregherai
Non ho tempo per chiarire
Perché solo ora so cosa sei
È difficile stare al mondo
Quando perdi l’orgoglio lasci casa in un giorno
Tu dimmi se

Pensavi solo ai soldi soldi
Come se avessi avuto soldi, soldi
Dimmi se ti manco o te ne fotti
Mi chiedevi come va, come, va, come va
Adesso come va, come va, come va

Ciò che devi dire non l’hai detto
Tradire è una pallottola nel petto
Prendi tutta la tua carità
Menti a casa ma lo sai che lo sa
Su una sedia lei mi chiederà
Mi chiede come va, come, va come va
Sai già come va, come va, come va

Penso più veloce per capire
Se domani tu mi fregherai
Non ho tempo per chiarire
Perché solo ora so cosa sei
È difficile stare al mondo
Quando perdi l’orgoglio
Ho capito in un secondo che tu da me
Volevi solo soldi, soldi
Come se avessi avuto soldi, soldi
Prima mi parlavi fino a tardi. tardi
Mi chiedevi come va, come va, come va
Adesso come va, come va, come va

Waladi waladi habibi ta’aleena
Mi dicevi giocando giocando con aria fiera
Waladi waladi habibi sembrava vera
La voglia la voglia di tornare come prima
Io da te non ho voluto soldi
È difficile stare al mondo
Quando perdi l’orgoglio
Lasci casa in un giorno
Tu dimmi se
Volevi solo soldi, soldi
Come se avessi avuto soldi, soldi
Lasci la città ma nessuno lo sa
Ieri eri qua ora dove sei papà
Mi chiedi come va, come va, come va
Sai già come va, come va, come va

 

 

Mahmood- ‘Soldi’ Lyrics (English Translation)

It’s really hot down in the suburbs
Mama don’t worry I’m on my way home
You will be upset by a liar
It looked like love to you, it was something else

He’s drinking champagne during Ramadan
On tv they are airing Jackie Chan
He’s smoking Shisha and asks me how I’m doing

He asks me how I’m doing doing doing
You alredy know how things are going going going
I think faster to try to figure out if you’re going to fool me tomorrow
I have no time to clear things up ’cause I finally found out what you are
It hurts to be alive
When you lose your pride
You leave home out of the blue

You, tell me if
You only cared for the money money
As if you had any money
Tell me whether you miss me or you don’t give a fuck

You used to ask me how I was doing doing doing
Now how are things going going going
What you’re supposed to say you haven’t said yet
Betrayal is a bullet in your chest

Keep all the compassion to yourself
You keep lyin’ at home but you know she knows
Sittin’ there she’ll be asking me

Asking me how I’m doing doing doing
She already knows how things are going going going
I think faster to try to figure out if you’re going to fool me tomorrow
I have no time to clear things up ’cause I finally found out what you are
It hurts to be alive
when you lose your pride
I figured it out in one second, from me

You only wanted the money
As if I had any money
Back then you would talk to me till late

You used to ask me how I’m doing doing doing
Now how are things going going going
My son, my son, darling, come over here [Arabic]
You used to tell me while playing your games with pride
My son, my son, darling, [Arabic] It felt so real to me
Wanting to bring things back to what they were

I didn’t ask you for your money…
It hurts to be alive
When you lose your pride
You leave home out of the blue

You, tell me if
Only cared for the money money
As if I had any money

You leave the city without anybody knowing
Yesterday you were here, where are you now, papa?
You ask me how I’m doing doing doing
You already know how things are going going going
