  Voiceover: Maria Paola Guerrato - Translation: Roberto Casiraghi*

If we were to single out the three most effective ways of memorising words and phrases in any given foreign language, we would definitely say "songs", "songs" and "songs". Also, if you like a song, try to learn its lyrics by heart (Italian lyrics are among the best in the world and they often exhibit a definite poetical quality). You will find that after a while you'll get so used to it that it will become a completely effortless task. Lyrics Puzzle is an exercise which invites you to listen repeatedly to a major Italian song and then to transcribe its lyrics. If you are in doubt as to what you are hearing, don't worry and look up our list of all the words that have been used in that particular song or listen to the audio file with the words in alphabetical order (so as not to infringe on anybody's copyright). Once the job done, just use Google (or another search engine) to find the complete lyrics.
DISCLAIMER: This resource doesn't contain the lyrics of this particular song but only the words used in the song listed in alphabetical order. The music is being streamed by www.youtube.com to whom you should apply if you think that your copyright is being infringed upon. If you are the original publisher of this song, we would like to ask you the permission to reproduce the full lyrics of this song for the benefit of our subscribers, as Scuolitalia is striving to enlarge the audience for Italian worldwide.
