Un Bacio a Mezzanotte – Lyrics & English Translation (Pixar Movie Luca)

The toe-tapping song that introduces the new Pixar movie Luca is called Un Bacio a Mezzanotte. The title literally means A Kiss at Midnight or A Midnight Kiss and it is one of nine songs on the Luca soundtrack.

Written in 1952 by Gorni Kramer (music) and Garinei & Giovannini (lyrics), it became a classic of Italian music thanks to the version performed by the Italian jazz vocal group Quartetto Cetra (Cithara Quartet). The group was active from the early 1940s right up until 1988.

Un Bacio a Mezzanotte – Quartetto Cetra – Italian Lyrics

Non ti fidar
Di un bacio a mezzanotte
Se c’è la luna non ti fidar

Perché perché
La luna a mezzanotte
Riesce sempre a farti innamorar

Non ti fidar di stelle galeotte
Che invitano a volersi amar

Mezzanotte per amar
Mezzanotte per sognar
Fantasticar

Ma come farò senza più amar
Ma come farò senza baciar
Ma come farò a non farmi tentar

Luna luna tu
Non mi guardar
Luna luna tu
Non curiosar
Luna luna tu
Non far la sentinella

Ogni stella in ciel
Parla al mio cuor
Ogni stella in ciel
Parla d’amor
Ogni stella in ciel sarà
La mia stella

Mezzanotte per amar
Mezzanotte per sognar
Fantasticar

Non ti fidar
Di un bacio a mezzanotte
Se c’è la luna non ti fidar

Perché perché
La luna a mezzanotte
Riesce sempre a farti innamorar

Non ti fidar di stelle galeotte
Che invitano a volersi amar

Mezzanotte per amar
Mezzanotte per sognar
Fantasticar


Un Bacio a Mezzanotte – Quartetto Cetra – English Translation

Don’t trust
A kiss at midnight
If the moon is there do not trust it

Why why does
The moon at midnight
Always manage to make you fall in love

Don’t trust matchmaking stars
Who invite you to love each other

Midnight for loving
Midnight for dreaming
Daydreaming

But how will I manage without loving anymore
But how will I manage without kissing
But how can I not be tempted

Moon moon you
Don’t look at me
Moon moon you
Don’t poke around
Moon moon you
Don’t be a sentinel

Every star in the sky
Speaks to my heart
Every star in the sky
Talks about love
Every star in the sky will be
My star

Midnight for loving
Midnight for dreaming
Daydreaming

Don’t trust
A kiss at midnight
If the moon is there do not trust it

Why why does
The moon at midnight
Always manage to make you fall in love

Don’t trust matchmaking stars
Who invite you to love each other

Midnight for loving
Midnight for dreaming
Daydreaming
