Non insegnate ai bambini

Giorgio Gaber

Giorgio Gaber

The song "Non insegnate ai bambini" ("Do not teach to the children") by the late Giorgio Gaber has the features of a sweet lullaby, with a slow and thoughtful time. However, the message is quite clear: "leave the growth of the children in peace, let them have their experiences and do not force your constructed convictions to them". An ode to the freedom to grow and to make mistakes.

The song was published in a posthumous album "Io non mi sento italiano" ("I do not feel Italian"). It had to be part of a theatrical show that Gaber was organizing with Luporini, but unfortunately this show will never be set up because of the sudden death of the Milanese author.

Non insegnate ai bambini non insegnate
Am Am4 Am Am4
la vostra morale
F F2 F F2 C C7+ C C7+
è cosi stanca e malata ... potrebbe far male
E E4 E
forse una grave imprudenza è lasciarli in balia
Am Em
di una falsa coscienza.
F Em
Non elogiate il pensiero che è sempre più raro
Dm Am Em
non indicate per loro una via conosciuta
F G C C7+ C C7+
ma se proprio volete insegnate soltanto la magia della vita
C Dm C C7+ C C7+
Giro giro tondo cambia il mondo
C C7+ C C7+
Non insegnate ai bambini non divulgate
Am Am4 Am4 Am
illusioni sociali
F C F2 F F2 C7+ C C7+
non gli riempite il futuro di vecchi ideali
E E4 E
l'unica cosa sicura è tenerli lontano
Am Em
dalla nostra cultura.
F Em
Non esaltate il talento che è sempre più spento
Dm Am G Em
non li avviate al bel canto, al teatro, alla danza
ma se proprio volete raccontategli il sogno
C C7+ C C7+
di un'antica speranza.
Non insegnate ai bambini ma coltivate voi stessi,
il cuore e la mente,
stategli sempre vicino,

date fiducia all'amore, il resto è niente.
C Dm C C7+ C C7+
Giro giro tondo cambia il mondo.

Giro giro tondo cambia il mondo.
