Parodies, puns and assorted doodles inspired by favored tunes


Domenico Modugno and Franco Migliacci. Lyrics were written by Migliacci who was inspired when he awoke from a dream and saw two paintings by Marc Chagall. “Le Coq rouge” and “Le peintre et la modelle.”

Volare, oh oh
Cantare, oh oh oh oh
Let’s fly way up to the clouds
Away from the maddening crowds
We can sing in the glow of a star that I know of
Where lovers enjoy peace of mind
