DSB at the Monte Carlo Sporting Club # 3

Today the third part of the 1970 performance at Midem Festival at the Monte Carlo Sporting Club. Dame Shirley came, saw and conquered the difficult Monte Carlo audience and had them eating out of her hand. She did one of her Italian songs as an encore: Chi si vuol bene come noi.

Lyrics
(with English translation)

Febbre di luna sulla mia facia
Moon fever upon my face
Come avessi bevuto un po’
As if I were a little drunk
Guardo la gente
I look at the people
Sembra che tutti
It seems that everybody
Che tutti sappiano di me
That everybody knows about me
Di me, di te
About me, about you

Chi si vuol bene come noi lo sa
Those who love each other as we do, they know
Che un giorno o l’altro ti succede
That soon or later it may happen
Di amare tanto da morire
To love so much up to the point
E non capire se esiste il mondo
Of not understanding if the world exists

Chi si vuol bene come noi lo sa
Those who love each other as we do, they know
Che amare è dare la tua vita
That loving means to give away your own life
Tutta la vita in un momento
Your whole life just in a moment
Anche se dopo, dopo non vivi più
Even if later, later you can’t live anymore
Ma almeno questo è vivere
But at least that’s living

Chi si vuol bene come noi lo sa
Those who love each other as we do, they know

Chi si vuol bene come noi lo sa
Those who love each other as we do, they know
Che amare è dare la tua vita
That loving means to give away your own life
Tutta la vita in un momento
Your whole life just in a moment
Anche se dopo, dopo non vivi più
Even if later, later you can’t live anymore
Ma almeno questo è vivere
But al least that’s living
È vivere… è vivere
That’s living… that’s living

  1. The gown that Princess Grace is wearing in the family room at the Palace is worn by my wife Elaine Deringer and the face is that of Princess Grace. Prince Ranier selected this gown when in New York in 1955 or 56 which was being modeled by my wife and was a surprise wedding gift to Grace.It is a 6 foot oil painting and Grace invited my family to the Palace to see it.
