Hangman, hangman, hold it a little while
Boia carnefice aspetta un attimo
I think I see my friends coming, riding many a mile
I think I see my friends coming, riding many a mile
Friends, you get some silver?
Amici avete portato dell'argento
Did you get a little gold?
Avete portato un po' d'oro
What did you bring me, my dear friends
Cosa mi avete portato miei cari amici
To keep me from the gallows pole?
Per tenermi lontano dal patibolo
What did you bring me to keep me from the gallows pole?
Cosa mi avete portato per evitarmi la forca
I couldn't get no silver, I couldn't get no gold
Non potei portare argento, non potei portar oro
You know that we're too damn poor to keep you from the gallows pole
You know that we're too damn poor to keep you from the gallows pole
Hangman, hangman, hold it a little while
Boia carnefice aspetta un attimo
I think I see my brother coming, riding many a mile
I think I see my brother coming, riding many a mile
Brother, you get me some silver?
Fratello mi hai portato dell'argento
Did you get a little gold?
Avete portato un po' d'oro
What did you bring me, my brother, to keep me from the gallows pole?
Cosa mi avete portato per evitarmi la forca
Brother, I brought you some silver, yeah
Fratello ti ho portato dell'argento yeah
I brought a little gold, I brought a little of everything
I brought a little gold, I brought a little of everything
To keep you from the gallows pole
Per tenerti lontano dalla forca
Yes, I brought you to keep you from the gallows pole
Sì, li ho portati per sottrarti alla forca
Hangman, hangman, turn your head awhile
Boia carnefice girati un attimo
I think I see my sister coming, riding many mile, mile, mile
I think I see my sister coming, riding many mile, mile, mile
Sister, I implore you, take him by the hand
Sorella t' imploro prendilo per mano
Take him to some shady bower
Portalo sotto qualche ombreggiato pergolato

Swingin' on the gallows pole!Led Zeppelin

Save me from the wrath of this man
Salvami dall'ira di quest'uomo
Please take him, save me from the wrath of this mad, man
Please take him, save me from the wrath of this mad, man
Hangman, hangman, upon your face a smile
Boia carnefice sul tuo viso un sorriso
Tell me that I'm free to ride
Ti prego dimmi che sono libero di cavalcare
Ride for many mile, mile, mile
Cavalcare per molte miglia e miglia e miglia
Oh yes, you got a fine sister
Oh sì hai una bella sorella
She warmed my blood from cold
Ha scaldato il mio sangue dal freddo
She warmed my blood to boiling hot to keep you from the gallows pole
She warmed my blood to boiling hot to keep you from the gallows pole
Your brother brought me silver, your sister warmed my soul
Your brother brought me silver, your sister warmed my soul
But now I laugh and pull so hard, see you swinging from the gallows pole
But now I laugh and pull so hard, see you swinging from the gallows pole
But now I laugh and pull so hard, see you swinging from the gallows pole
But now I laugh and pull so hard, see you swinging from the gallows pole
Swingin' on the gallows pole!
A dondolare dalla forca
Swingin' on the gallows pole!
A dondolare dalla forca
Swingin' on the gallows pole!
A dondolare dalla forca
Swingin' on the gallows pole
A dondolare dalla forca
Pole, pole, pole, pole, pole, pole, yeah
Pole, pole, pole, pole, pole, pole, yeah
Ah-ha-ha
Ah ah ah
Swingin'
Dondolare
Swingin' on the gallows pole!
A dondolare dalla forca
I gotta swing!
I gotta swing!
See-saw marjory daw
Sali scendi Marjory Daw
I gotta swing!
I gotta swing!
See-saw knock at my door
Su e giù bussi alla mia porta
I gotta sing
I gotta sing
Keep on singing
Keep on singing
