Catari

Non ti scordar mai di me

"Non ti scordar mai di me" was originally written by Roberto Casalino several years ago, then Italian Popstar Tiziano Ferro has collaborated on the melody when the song has been offered to Giusy Ferreri. The song worldpremiered on May 27, 2008 on the last episode of the first Italian edition of X Factor.
Despite the great popularity, has been underlined a similarity of the song with "Back to Black", by English singer-songwriter Amy Winehouse,[2] and "Coming Home" by the American band Alter Bridge.

Marzo: 'nu poco chiove
E 'n'atu ppoco stracqua.
Torna a chiovere, schiove,
Ride 'o sole cu ll'acqua.

Mo 'nu cielo celeste,
Mo 'n'aria cupa e nera.
Mo, d' 'o vierno, 'e ttempeste,
Mo 'n'aria 'e primmavera.

Marzo: 'nu poco chiove
E 'n'atu ppoco stracqua.

'N'auciello freddigliuso
Aspetta ch'esce 'o sole.
'Ncopp' 'o tturreno 'nfuso
Suspirano 'e vviole.

Catar?, che vu? cchi??
'Ntienneme, core mio!
Marzo, tu 'o ssaje, s? tu
E 'st'auciello songh'io.

Marzo: 'nu poco chiove
E 'n'atu ppoco stracqua.
