Forget Donami

Writer(s): Sonny Burke / Rizero Ortolani / Norman Newell

Let’s forget about tomorrow, let’s forget about tomorrow,
Let’s forget about tomorrow for tomorrow never comes!
Domani — forget domani, let’s live for now and anyhow
Who needs domani? The moonlight — let’s share the moonlight,
Perhaps together we will never be again.
Ah, che luna, oh, che mare
With such a moon and such a sea and you and me
I get so dizzy when you’re standing near
It’s not the music that you hear
My heart is beating like a jungle drum
Let’s take the minutes as they speed away
And hope it’s true what people say
“When you’re in love, tomorrow never comes”
Let’s forget about tomorrow, let’s forget about tomorrow,
Let’s forget about tomorrow for tomorrow never comes!
Let’s forget about tomorrow, let’s forget about tomorrow,
Let’s forget about tomorrow for tomorrow never comes!
Domani – mahrone*, domani! With such a moon and such a sea,
And you and me.
Let’s take the minutes as they speed away, and hope it’s true what people say:
When you’re in love tomorrow never comes.
Let’s forget about tomorrow, let’s forget about tomorrow,
Let’s forget about tomorrow for tomorrow never never comes!
Let’s forget about tomorrow, let’s forget about tomorrow,
Let’s forget about tomorrow for tomorrow never never comes!
Oh, let’s forget about tomorrow

*Mahrone, or Madonne, are corruptions of the name Madonna, which is the name given to Mary, the Mother of God. Contrary to what some people believe, it’s an ejaculation,lke “Jesus Christ!” not dirty as such, but is used for everything from “You’re on my last nerve and if you keep it up, I’m going to beat the shit out of you” to the simple “Oh, hell”.
