    Default Help Translate È gettata la mia sorte in simple english

    Hello, please translate in simple english the song " È gettata la mia sorte" (from Attila Verdi)

    È gettata la mia sorte

    È gettata la mia sorte,
    Pronto sono ad ogni guerra;
    S'io cadrò da forte,
    E il mio nome resterà.
    Non vedrò l'amata terra
    Svenir lenta e farsi a brano...
    Sopra l'ultimo romano tutta Italia piangerà.


    Thanks

    from google translate
    My fate is thrown

    My fate is thrown,
    Ready I am at every war;
    I'll fall asleep,
    And my name will remain.
    I will not see my beloved land
    Slow revelry and be heard ...
    Above the last Roman tut

    From the libretto that comes with the 1970s Philips recording. It's a bit different from the Google version!

    My lot is cast,
    I am prepared for any warfare;
    if I fall, I fall as a hero
    and my name will remain.
    I will not see my beloved country
    slowly decay and be reduced to shreds.
    All Italy will mourn
    the last of the Romans.

    Early Google translation:

    "The flesh is weak but the spirit is willing"

    translated to Russian and back:

    "The meat is spoiled but there's plenty of vodka."

    it is comforting to see that humans are still better than machines in some fields
