Vesuvio is a volcano mountain in Naples. This song is by the European group "Spaccanapoli" The pictures are all from Deviant Art web site. This song was used in the Sopranos to describe the affair that was about to happen between Carmella and Furio. I think the words fit that situation perfectly. And I was captivated by this song when I heard it on there and it took me a long time to find out who it was by and what it was about. The lyrics for this song in both Napoli and English translation are as follows....

"Vesuvio"-Spaccanapoli

IN ENGLISH:

Vesuvius

Youre a mountain, but a
swearing mountain.
Youre death, but death
that may shake.

Mountain of lava,
of hundreds of streets,
you hold my life in your hands.

Is this a place for homes
or a place for jail?
Where youre locked
from morning till night?

Youre purgatory for
all these people
who live in slums
and who live in need.

Whether you smoke or not
you still make noise
its the fire you bear
in your heart.

When the night falls
and the sky gets dark
the mere thought of you
makes us tremble.

Those who live with you
dont be surprise
if they go mad
they really are mad.

The only safety for us
would be to run away from you...
and yet, where shall we go?
sooner or later
this river of lava
will drag us along and
leave us homeless.

Youre a mountain, but what a mountain.

IN Napoli-

Vesuvio

Si monte sì, ma monte
e na iastemma
si a morte sì, ma a morte
ca pò tremma

Muntagna fatta e lava
e ciente vie
tu tiene mmano a te sta vita mia

So pizzi e case
o so pizzi e galera?
arò stai chiuso
ra matina a sera

Si o purgatorio e tutte
chesta gente
ca vive inte barracche
e vive e stiente

Si fumme o si nun fumme
faie rummore
è o ffuoco ca te puorte
rinto core

Quanno fa notte
e o cielo se fa scuro
sulo o ricordo e te
ce fa paura

Chi campa nzieme a te
te pare niente
si esce pazzo
è pazzo overamente

Lunica verità pe tutte quante
sarria chella e fuì
ma po arò iammo
primma ca cocche ghiuorne
stu ffuoco e lava
ce porta a tuttu quante
mmieza via !

Si monte sì, ma monte
