English Text

But what a strange dream
Of a volcano and a city
People dancing on an island
Blue Gardenia played
A jazz orchestra
The water slowly simmered in the east
The explosion and then
Sweet sweet
An atomic tan
Between music
Sweet sweet
Everything was going down
While the TV
He said
While the TV
He sang
Drink it because it's tropicana je
While the TV
He said
While the TV
He sang
Drink it because it's tropicana je

Burn in the night
The city of San Jose
Radio Cuba was screaming outside a cafe
The incandescent lava
The hulahops crowded
The hurricane overwhelmed the bungalows
We were there
tell me tell me
Don't you feel like in the cinema?
And we were there
tell me tell me
How do I go into a movie?

Italian Text

Ma che strano sogno
Di un vulcano e una città
Gente che ballava sopra un'isola
Suonava Blue Gardenia
Un'orchestrina jazz
L'acqua ribolliva lentamente ad est
L'esplosione e poi
Dolce dolce
Un'abbronzatura atomica
Tra la musica
Dolce dolce
Tutto andava giù
Mentre la tivù
Diceva
Mentre la tivù
Cantava
Bevila perché è tropicana je
Mentre la tivù
Diceva
Mentre la tivù
Cantava
Bevila perché è tropicana je

Brucia nella notte
La città di San Jose
Radio Cuba urlava fuori da un cafè
La lava incandescente
Gremava gli hulahop
L'uragano travolgeva i bungalow
Noi stavamo lì
Dimmi dimmi
Non ti senti come al cinema?
E stavamo lì
Dimmi dimmi
Come dentro a un film?
