Neapolitan lyrics: 
 
Che bella cosa e' na jurnata 'e sole 
n'aria serena doppo na tempesta! 
Pe' ll'aria fresca pare già na festa 
Che bella cosa e' na jurnata 'e sole 
Ma n'atu sole, 
cchiù bello, oje ne' 
'O sole mio 
sta 'nfronte a te! 
'O sole, 'o sole mio 
sta 'nfronte a te! 
sta 'nfronte a te! 
Quanno fa notte e 'o sole se ne scenne, 
me vene quase 'na malincunia; 
sotto 'a fenesta toia restarria 
quanno fa notte e 'o sole se ne scenne. 
Ma n'atu sole, 
cchiù bello, oje ne' 
'O sole mio 
sta 'nfronte a te! 
'O sole, 'o sole mio 
sta 'nfronte a te! 
sta 'nfronte a te! 
 
English Lyrics: 
 
What a beautiful thing is a sunny day, 
The air is serene after a storm 
The air's so fresh that it already feels like a celebration 
What a beautiful thing is a sunny day 
But another sun, 
that's brighter still 
It's my own sun 
that's upon your face! 
The sun, my own sun 
It's upon your face! 
It's upon your face! 
When night comes and the sun has gone down, 
I almost start feeling melancholy; 
I'd stay below your window 
When night comes and the sun has gone down. 
But another sun, 
that's brighter still 
It's my own sun 
that's upon your face! 
The sun, my own sun 
It's upon your face! 
It's upon your face!
