Lyrics:
Artist Don Cornell's version, if ever released as a single, did not chart but
Emilio Pericoli took it to # 6 in 1962
Connie Francis re-did it in 1963 as the flip of "I'm Gonna Be Warm This Winter" but
         managed to reach only # 90.
La
La la la la
La la la la
La la la la

Al di la means you are far above me, very far
Al di la as distant as the lovely evening star
Where you walk flowers bloom
When you smile all the gloom turns to sunshine
And my heart opens wide
When you're gone it fades inside
And seems to have died

Al di la, I wondered, as I drifted, where you were
Al di la, the fog around me lifted, there you were
In the kiss that I gave was the love I had saved for a lifetime
Then I knew all of you was completely mine

{instrumental: second verse, first line} Ci sei tu
{instrumental: second verse, second line} Ci sei tu
In the kiss that I gave was the love I had saved for a lifetime
Then I knew all of you was completely mine

La la la la
La la la la
La la la la

La la la la
La la la la
La la la la
