Bella Ciao - Chumbawamba

 The world is waking outside my window
 Bella ciao, bella ciao, bella ciao ciao ciao
 Drags my senses into the sunlight
 For there are things that I must do
 Wish me luck now, I have to leave you
 Bella ciao, bella ciao, bella ciao ciao ciao
 With my friends now up to the city
 We're going to shake the Gates of Hell
 
 And I will tell them - we will tell them
 Bella ciao, bella ciao, bella ciao ciao ciao
 That our sunlight is not for franchise
 And wish the bastards drop down dead  
 Next time you see me I may be smiling
 Bella ciao, bella ciao, bella ciao ciao ciao
 I'll be in prison or on the TV
 I'll say, "the sunlight dragged me here!"
 Bella ciao, bella ciao, bella ciao ciao ciao
 Bella ciao, bella ciao, bella ciao ciao ciao


Bella Ciao - Hannes Wader

There has also been a quite popular version by Hannes Wader 1 on his Album 'Arbeiterlieder'. .rm clip from amazon


Eines Morgens in aller Frühe,
bella ciao, bella ciao,
bella ciao, ciao, ciao,
|: eines Morgens in aller Frühe
trafen wir auf unsern Feind. :|
Ihr Partisanen, kommt nehmt mich mit euch,
bella ciao, bella ciao,
bella ciao, ciao, ciao,
Ihr |: Partisanen, kommt nehmt mich mit euch,
denn ich fühl, der Tod ist nah. :|
Und wenn ich sterbe, oh ihr Genossen,
bella ciao, bella ciao,
bella ciao, ciao, ciao,
|: Wenn ich sterbe, oh ihr Genossen,
bringt mich dann zur letzten Ruh! :|
In den Schatten der kleinen Blume,
bella ciao, bella ciao,
bella ciao, ciao, ciao,
|: Einer zarten, ganz kleinen Blume, in die Berge bringt mich dann :|
Und die Leute, die gehn vorüber,
bella ciao, bella ciao,
bella ciao, ciao, ciao,
|: Und die Leute, die gehn vorüber,
sehn die kleine Blume stehn. :|
Diese Blume, so sagen alle,
bella ciao, bella ciao,
bella ciao, ciao, ciao,
|: ist die Blume des Partisanen,
der für unsre Freiheit starb! :|
