Angelina Mango sings Papa Pino’s La Rondine: lyrics and meaning of the song


Angelina Mango, his father lost him when he was only 13 years old. Giuseppe Mango (whom everyone knows only by his surname) didn’t see her grow up. He didn’t see her become a woman and an artist, he didn’t see her come second Friends, didn’t see her take the Sanremo stage (LIVE LIVE – THE VOTES FOR THE LOOKS – THE SKY TG24 SPECIAL – THE REPORT CARDS – THE LOOK REPORT CARDS), and receive the standing ovation from the public. Her voice, however, seems to guide her. And she, on the evening of the Sanremo 2024 covers, paid homage to him. She did it with The swallowhis greatest (and unforgotten) success.

The performance

With the performance of The swallowAngelina Mango earned it the longest and deepest applause of the evening. The Ariston gave her a (well-deserved) standing ovation, and she barely held back the tears. A banner for Mango appeared in the audience (“Thank you, Pino”), the audience shouted loudly “Pino, Pino”, Amadeus defined the late artist as “one of the most beautiful voices of Italian music”. While, Lorella Cuccarini, exclaimed: “Mamma mia, Angelina”. “I will pay homage to him on tiptoe,” the singer promised. She did it. Excellently.

The swallowthe text

I would like you, I would like you
as always I would like you
night will come, you will think of me
but what do you know about dreams
Those are mine, I’m not selling them
What do you know, what do you know
who knows you will write to me
maybe a goodbye, or maybe not
but what do you know about dreams…
Although you are my swallow gone away,
you are my half flight
you are my step into the void
Where are you, where are you
Where are you, where are you where are you
Only love that… I would relive
you taste like a north wind
you know good things but not about us
same half moon
you’re in the wrong sky…
I don’t know, I don’t know
how much time will I kill
my book my, I will not read to you
kissing you on the mouth…
I’ll write it another time…
Even though you are…..

Even though you are
my swallow gone away
you are my half flight

you are my step into the void…

Where are you, where are you
Where are you, where are you where are you
Only love that… I would relive
you taste like a north wind
you know good things but not about us
same half moon
you’re in the wrong sky…
Even though you are my swallow gone away
same half moon
you’re in the wrong sky…

The swallowthe meaning

The swallow it is the story of a Goodbye. Which maybe is forever, or maybe not. It is a story of abandonment, of pain, of dreams and disenchantment. Of illusions that fill the void, of absences that life forces us to deal with. Like Angelina did when her dad left. When he flew “into the wrong sky”, without even time for a goodbye. So, paying homage to him was natural for her. Even if she had never sung her own song before. When she tried it at home, on the piano, she knew the time had come. And what to bring The swallow in Sanremo, tiptoeing, it would have been the right closure of a circle that was still open.
