Italian song of the month - Nek "Fatti avanti, amore"

Italiansong Nek

A month ago I started the Italian SONG OF THE MONTH series, a project that aims to introduce you to Italian songs to sing along to.

Usually lyrics, translation and some grammatical explanations accompany my selection.

I hope these will assist you with learning Italian through music.

Because that's how I learnt tons of words and verbs in English, loving EVERY MINUTE of it.

This month's choice is a fairly new creation (2015) by the Italian musician, singer and songwriter Filippo Neviani.

Stage name: Nek.

Fatti avanti, amore means come forward, my love. Click on the image below to listen to the song.

Abbiamo gambe per fare passi (we have legs to take a steps)

Abbiamo bocche per dare baci (we have mouths to kiss)

Siamo due braccia con un cuore (we are two arms with a heart)

Abbiamo mani per afferrarci (we have hands to grab each other)
