lyrics

Bella Ciao

And in the morning I was awoken
Oh Bella ciao, bella ciao, bella ciao ciao ciao
And in the morning I was awoken
And found the enemy was here.

Oh Partisan, come take me with you
Oh Bella ciao, bella ciao, bella ciao ciao ciao
Oh Partisan, come take me with you
Because I am ready to die

And if I die, fighting for freedom
Oh Bella ciao, bella ciao, bella ciao ciao ciao
And if I die, fighting for freedom
Then you must come and bury me

Bury me high up, upon the mountain
Oh Bella ciao, bella ciao, bella ciao ciao ciao
Bury me high up, upon the mountain
Under the shade of a lovely flower

So all the people who pass by that way
Oh Bella ciao, bella ciao, bella ciao ciao ciao
So all the people who pass by that way
Will say "Oh see that lovely flower! – "

"Ah that's the flower of the freedom fighter – "
Oh Bella ciao, bella ciao, bella ciao ciao ciao
"Ah that's the flower of the freedom fighter
Who gave his life for liberty!"
