French
Avanti, avanti la vie
Traverse la mémoire des hommes
Du cœur et des poings, avanti
Peut-être referas-tu Rome

Avanti, avanti la vie
Sois un oiseau sans barreaux, va
Des ailes et du bec, avanti
Mais vole plus haut que les chats

Le train des jours roule dans ta tête
Tant de détours souvent te guettent

Avanti, avanti la vie
N’écoute pas toutes les lois
Tu en crèverais, avanti
Toutes les libertés grondent en toi

(Avanti, avanti la vie) Ni valet, ni roi
(Sois poète sans bourreaux, va) Chante aussi fort que tu pourras
(De l’encre et des mots, avanti) Avanti la vie
(Écris le fou du fond de toi)

Le train du temps parfois s’arrête
Profites-en, change de tête

Avanti, avanti la vie
Aide-toi, le ciel t’aidera
Lève-toi et marche, avanti
Un autre l’a dit avant moi

(Avanti, avanti la vie) Avanti la vie
(Traverse la mémoire des hommes) Du cœur et des poings, avanti
(Du cœur et des poings, avanti)
Peut-être referas-tu Rome

Translation
Go forward, go forward in life
Remember the history of mankind
Heart and fists, go forward
Maybe you will revive Rome

Go forward, go forward in life
Be a free bird, go
Wings and beak, go forward
But fly higher than the cats

The train of the days rides in your head
A lot of bends are often waiting for you

Go forward, go forward in life
Don’t listen to all the laws
You would perish, go forward
All the liberties growl on you

(Go forward, go forward in life) Neither servant nor king
(Be a poet without executioners, go) Sing as strong as you can
(Ink and words, go forward) Go forward in life
(Write down the madness of your inner self)

The train of the time sometimes stop
Make the most of it, change your mind

Go forward, go forward in life
Help yourself, heaven will help you
Stand up and walk, go forward
Someone else said it before me

(Go forward, go forward in life) Go forward in life
(Remember the history of mankind) Heart and fists, go forward
(Heart and fists, go forward)
Maybe you will revive Rome
