  • “An Italian in Paris”: the song
Gems of Paris by French Moments

“An Italian in Paris” is a song that describes Paris by an Italian! In his album Amore Eterno (2007), Davide Esposito sings Un italien à Paris by alterning Italian and French lyrics. This song is actually a cover version of “An English in New York” made famous by Sting (1987).


Quando fa giorno prendo il mio caffè
Seduto ad un tavolo cosi
Con il mio accento porto un po’ dell’ Italie
Per le belle strade di Paris
Dal lungo la senna fino a Saint germain
Tu puoi trovarmi sono li
Che osservo il mondo intorno a me
Per le strade belle di Paris

Ritornello (Refrain/Chorus) :
Je suis un italien
Et je vis la vie que j’aime
Un italien à paris

E se qualcuno dice che non so
Parlare bene le Français
Con un sorriso passo avanti anche se
L’ammarezza la sta dentro me

Vivo senza regole
La musica nell’anima
Lascia il cuore in piena libertà
Tutto sembra splendido
Anche per un attimo
Puoi fuggire da questa realtà
