Come mai
dici sempre che con me
tu non puoi stare,
che non vuoi?

Te ne vai
e mi giuri che mai più
ritornerai da me

Come mai
poi ritorni sempre
se con me tu
non vuoi restar?

Forse sai che non c'e'
uno che ti sopporta
come me

E perciò tu, tu, torni da me
E, e, tu torni da me
e non ti domandi
nemmeno perché

(Testo italiano di Menegazzi, Serengay e Colombini)

 

   

Note

 

Una versione modesta, che cerca di ritrovare in qualche modo l'energia dell'originale, lottando contro la idiosincrasia tra la lingua italiana e il blues-rock. Senza commenti anche il testo italiano banalissimo, a fronte degli onirici e beffardi versi originali, con la immagine forte e indimenticabile di Mick Jagger ragazzino che urla "scendi dalla mia nuvola! / due sono una folla, sulla mia nuvola!"

 

Rolling Stones - Get Off Of My Cloud

 

I live in an apartment on the ninety ninth floor of my block
And I sit at home looking out the window
Imagining the world has stopped
Then in flies a guy who's all dressed up like a Union Jack
And says, I've won five pounds if I have his kind of detergent pack

I said, Hey! You! Get off of my cloud
Hey! You! Get off of my cloud
Hey! You! Get off of my cloud
Don't hang around 'cause two's a crowd
On my cloud, baby

The telephone is ringing
I say, Hi, it's me. Who is it there on the line?
A voice says, Hi, hello, how are you
Well, I guess I'm doin' fine
He says, It's three a.m., there's too much noise
Don't you people ever wanna go to bed?
Just 'cause you feel so good, do you have
To drive me out of my head?

I said, Hey! You! Get off of my cloud
Hey! You! Get off of my cloud
Hey! You! Get off of my cloud
Don't hang around 'cause two's a crowd
On my cloud baby

I was sick and tired, fed up with this
And decided to take a drive downtown
It was so very quiet and peaceful
There was nobody, not a soul around
I laid myself out, I was so tired and I started to dream
In the morning the parking tickets were just like
A flag stuck on my window screen

I said, Hey! You! Get off of my cloud
Hey! You! Get off of my cloud
Hey! You! Get off of my cloud
Don't hang around 'cause two's a crowd
On my cloud

Hey! You! Get off of my cloud
Hey! You! Get off of my cloud
Hey! You! Get off of my cloud
Don't hang around, baby, two's a crowd
