This is a Free Download of Ben Cipolla's original song 'Cicero'.
In exchange of your email address so you can keep on top of all things Cipolla, here is a direct download to a original song in Sicilain, called 'Cicero'.
Cicero (pronounced 'chichero') means Roman.
Ben can't really speak Italian.
Though one day he will show up to battle and conquer the laziness that is stopping him from learning his sister language.
The lyrics were taken from Vincenzo Ancona, a Sicilian poet, who always wanted to learn how to speak English. How ironic.
Translation below... a presto.
If I do not learn English soon, I'll be ruined. Damn this language I don't know how to speak! So much embarassment have I endured, not mentioning what else may be in store. In my own language I'm a Cicero, but I feel like I'm speaking to the wall when I speak English; this accursed tongue is made of scribblings, ciphers---it's all wrong!
Vincenzo Ancona (1915 - 2/23/2000)
