    Lyrics:

    1. AFRICANNU (Sicilian dialect)

    Ccà c'è 'na storia
    ca ti duna a chi pinsari
    ca ti pigghia ppi lu cori
    e si nun senti, unni è l'amuri?
    Amuri, ppi la vita,
    ppi lu suli, e p' 'a natura
    ranni amuri
    ppi 'n surrisu e ppi tia

    C'era 'n picciriddu
    senza paci e senza petri
    senza jochi ne manciari
    'a menti china di duluri
    Sulu 'nu palluni
    ppi jucari ccu l'amici
    e ppi campari di risati
    macari ddà...

    Africannu n'da li jorna ca fa mali arrusbigghiarisi
    Africannu n'da li jorna ca voi moriri
    Africannu n'da li jorna ca nun viri lustru n'da la via
    e arrirennu a facci di cu nun sapi amari​

    Nenti iddu avia
    sulu turmentu e malatia
    nenti matri e nenti patri
    nenti soru e nenti frati
    Sulu 'na canzuni
    e di spiranza a so' 'ntinzioni
    di la vita ci'nn'è una
    e nenti chiu'

    Africannu n'da li jorna ca fa mali arrusbigghiarisi
    Africannu n'da li jorna ca voi moriri
    Africannu n'da li jorna ca nun viri lustru n'da la via
    e arrirennu a facci di cu nun sapi amari

    MASCULI:
    Genti di lu munnu ascutati li paroli
    ca vi rici 'n picciriddu c'ha' capiu comu campari
    Genti di lu munnu ascutati li cunsigghi
    di 'stu spertu picciriddu c'ha' capiu comu s'ha' fari
    FIMMINI:
    n'da 'stu munnu semu nati ppi magia
    di lamenti nudda banna si va
    e c'è sempri cu' stà peggiu di tia
    strinci i denti arriri e abballa 'u truccu cca stà!

    Africannu n'da li jorna ca fa mali arrusbigghiarisi
    Africannu n'da li jorna ca voi moriri
    Africannu n'da li jorna ca nun viri lustru n'da la via
    e arrirennu a facci di cu nun sapi amari

    1. AFRICANNU (english translation)

    There's a story
    that gives you something to think about
    that takes you from the heart
    and if you don't feel it, where is the love?
    Love for life,
    for the sun, for nature
    a big love for a smile
    and for yourself

    There was a child
    without peace and without stones
    without toys or food
    with his mind full of pain
    All he had was a ball
    to play with his friends
    and to survive with laughter
    even there...

    Africannu on the days where it hurts to wake up
    Africannu on the days where you just want to die
    Africannu on the days where you don't see light in the street
    and smiling to those that don't know how to love

    He didn't have anything
    he just had torment and disease
    no mother, no father,
    no sisters and no brothers
    All he had was a song
    and his intentions full of hope
    life is one
    and no more than that

    Africannu on the days where it hurts to wake up
    Africannu on the days where you just want to die
    Africannu on the days where you don't see light in the street
    and smiling to those that don't know how to love

    MEN:
    Folks of the world listen to the words
    of a child that understood how to live
    Folks of the world listen to the advice
    of this smart child that understood how to do it
    WOMEN:
    In this world we are born for magic
    complaining will take you no where
    and there's always one who's in a worse place than you
    so bite the bullet, laugh and dance, this is the magic trick!

    Africannu on the days where it hurts to wake up
    Africannu on the days where you just want to die
    Africannu on the days where you don't see light in the street
    and smiling to those that don't know how to love Show less
