I need help! I’m in search of a song that my grandma used to sing to me. It is “Farfallina” but I looked at all the versions of Farfallina you have on your website and none of them look like a match to me. I don’t speak Italian so its hard for me to tell, but I thought you could help me. She was from Naples (if that helps). I remember the end…. “mamma” or something that sounds simular to that. My father seems to think its about a butterfly landing on your lip and it bites it (?) I’m not sure.
This song means so much to me and I would love to have the whole thing how she used to sing it. Please let me know!
Also, she used to sing one about a man behind a mirror…..and the end said something about “Shut-up and I’ll tell you the story again”. Do you know this one?
If anyone can help with either of these songs, please comment below or email me.
