Hi,

I'd like to know how to say Vianello's song (O mio signore) as if it's a woman singing about a man.

He sings:

fa que domani lei ritorni da me

(make her come back to me tomorrow)

How do I say the same thing, but about "him"?

(make him come back to me tomorrow)

also I imagine - "sono contenta" instead of "sono contento" ?

Grazie mille!

Hi,

I'm not familiar with this particular song, but it should be

Fa' che domani lui ritorni da me

and

Sono contenta

Hope this helps!

Claudia

thank you Mar 9, 2011

Ciao Claudia,

This is one of my favorite Italian songs!!

you can hear it on youtube (sound quality not that good):

I even found an original live show recording from the 60s but the sound quality is terrible.

But there is also a karaoke version

Now I can sing properly for HIM

Thanks,
Vera
