I am the author of both lyrics and music. It was awarded in Bimbofestival 2011 as best lyrics of the whole competition. Published by Map Milano Italy."

Here’s the mp3 recording, the song lyrics in Italian, followed by Giada’s English translation…

MP3 of Principessa Nel Regno Del Ghiaccio

Principessa Nel Regno Del Ghiaccio

(Testo e musica di Giada de Gioia)

 

Bianca come la luna piena

la pista è come uno specchio d’argento

ma tu non sei Biancaneve.

 

Bianca con i riflessi del cielo più blu

e tu ti senti davvero felice

come un orsetto polare.

(Coro)

Sei perfetta, ballerina

sui tuoi pattini d’argento

principessa poi sarai regina

sul podio nel palazzo

nel tuo regno di ghiaccio.

 

Esile,

a volte sembri fragile

in equilibrio instabile tra gioco, ambizione

infinita passione.

 

Lame lucenti come spade

brillanti più del sole

sui pattini da ghiaccio

e tu non vedi l’ora

di gareggiare ancora, ancora ancora.

(Coro)

Sui pattini da ghiaccio

e tu non vedi l’ora

di gareggiare ancora, ancora ancora.

(Coro)

 

English Translation:

 

Princess In The Reign Of Ice                 

 

White like the full moon

The skating-rink is like a silver mirror,

But you are not Snow White.

White, with the reflection of the bluest sky

And you feel really happy like a little polar bear.

 

(Chorus)

You are perfect, dancer, on your silver skates

You are a princess, then you’ll become a queen

On the platform in the palace

In your reign of ice.

 

Thin, sometimes you look fragile

In unsteady balance between game and ambition,

Endless passion.

Blades shining like swords

Brighter than the sun

On your skates you look forward to competing again.

 

(Chorus)

Blades shining like swords

Brighter than the sun

On your skates you look forward to competing again.

 

(Chorus)

Many thanks to Giada de Gioia for sharing this fun song about ice skating with us!

Grazie!
