L’ ci darem la mano, L’ mi dirai di s’, Vedi, non lontano, Partiam, ben mio, da qui.
Vorrei, e non vorrei,,Mi trema un poco il cor,Felice, ver, sarei, Ma pu’ burlami ancor.
Vieni, mio bel diletto! Mifa piet” Masetto. Io cangier” tua sorte Presto non son pi’ forte.
Andiam, andiam… Andiam… Andiam, andiam, mio bene, ristorar le pene
D’un innocente amor

“The Grandparents Song”
based on “La ci darem la mano” by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
Words & Arrangement by Arthur B. Rubinstein

Let’s sing a song to Grandma / With voices clear and strong.

Grandma’s the one we turn to / Whenever things go wrong.
If you’re afraid and shy / She’ll brush away your fears,
And if you should start to cry / She’ll kiss away your tears.
When she’s away, I always seem to get in trouble.
And if I stray, it makes mom and dad get sore.
But then Grandma comes to see me / And everything’s okay.
She makes the sun shine brighter / I love her more each day.
Let’s sing a song for Grandpa / With voices strong and true
He is the one we count on / When no one else will do
No one’s as smart as Grandpa / To this he would agree.
He knows all there is to know, / And teaches it to me.
Through pain and woe they’re always there to help us work things out
And as we grow, they’ll never let us lose our way.

Someday I’ll be a Grandma/Grandpa ./ With grandkids on my knee.

And when they come to visit / They’ll sing this song to me.
We love Grandma. We love Grandpa. / And we’re here to say:
Let the joyful music ring / On this, their holiday.
For their lasting love and guidance / How can we repay?
Let’s all sing this song to them / On Grandparent’s Day.
Through pain and woe they’re always there to help us work things out
And as we grow, they’ll never let us lose our way.
Someday I’ll be a Grandma/Grandpa / With grandkids on my knee.
And when they come to visit / They’ll sing this song to me.
