La rosa bianca

Sergio Endrigo

Versione inglese
Coltivo una rosa bianca
sia pur nell'avversa stagione
per l'anima buona che pone
nella mia la sua mano franca
Ma per colui che m'abbranca
dal petto il cuore mio vivo
nè cardo nè ortica coltivo
coltivo una rosa bianca
I cultivate a white rose
In July as in January
For the sincere friend
Who gives me his hand frankly.

And for the cruel person who tears out
the heart with which I live,
I cultivate neither nettles nor thorns:
I cultivate a white rose.
