Anthony devotes Brucia La Terra to his father.

"Brucia la Terra" (Burns the Earth) is a Sicilian ballad from the town of Corleone. It was one of Michael's particular favourites, as it reminded him of his first wife, Apollonia. It was sung by Anthony Corleone.

The song's lyrics were written by Giuseppe Rinaldi. It was recorded by Gian Campione on the album Calura from 2009.

LyricsEdit

Sicilian:

Brucia la luna n'cielu E ju bruciu d'amuri

Focu ca si consuma Comu lu me cori

L'anima chianci Addulurata

Non si da paci Ma cchi mala nuttata

Lu tempu passa Ma non agghiorna Non c'e mai suli S'idda non torna

Brucia la terra mia E abbrucia lu me cori Cchi siti d'acqua idda E ju siti d'amuri

Acu la cantu La me canzuni

Si no c'e nuddu Ca s'a affacia A lu barcuni

Brucia la luna n'cielu E ju bruciu d'amuri Focu ca si consuma Comu lu me cori

L'anima chianci Addulurata

Non si da paci Ma cchi mala nuttata

Lu tempu passa Ma non agghiorna Non c'e mai suli S'idda non torna

Brucia la terra mia E abbrucia lu me cori Cchi siti d'acqua idda E ju siti d'amuri

Acu la cantu La me canzuni

Si no c'e nuddu Ca s'a affacia A lu barcuni

Brucia la luna n'cielu E ju bruciu d'amuri Focu ca si consuma Comu lu me cori

English:

The moon is burning in the sky And I am burning with love The fire that is consumed Like my heart

My soul cries Painfully

I'm not at peace What a terrible night

The time passes But there is no dawn There is no sunshine If she doesn't return

My earth is burning And my heart is burning What she thirsts for water I thirst for love

Who will I sing My song to

If there is no one Who shows herself On the balcony

The moon is burning in the sky And I am burning with love The fire that is consumed Like my heart

My soul cries Painfully

I'm not at peace What a terrible night

The time passes But there is no dawn There is no sunshine If she doesn't return

My earth is burning And my heart is burning What she thirsts for water I thirst for love

Who will I sing My song to

If there is no one Who shows herself On the balcony

The moon is burning in the sky And I am burning with love The fire that is consumed Like my heart
